Robert Snodgrass, 26, was charged with speeding and failing to give information to police after being caught allegedly driving his BMW at 44mph in a 30mph limit on Dereham Road in November last year.

But the winger, who signed for Hull City for an estimated £7m this month, was not at Norwich Magistrate’s Court today to hear the charge of speeding was dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service.

Instead the second and remaining charge was proved in his absence by magistrate’s Darren Gilkes, Mary Anne Massey and Alison Sanger.

Snodgrass, of Wilderness Road in Costessey, will have to pay a total of £745 in a £600 fine, £85 court costs and £60 victim surcharge, as well as seeing six points added to his previously clean licence.

The Scot, who joined Norwich from Leeds United in 2012, scored seven goals in 34 appearances last season as the Canaries were relegated from the Premier League.

Earlier this month, former Norwich City goalkeeper Carlo Nash, 40, was told he was facing a driving ban by magistrates after he was clocked by a traffic officer driving at 140mph on the A11 at Wymondham. When stopped and informed about his speed the player is alleged to have replied: “I just wanted to get home.”
