A footballer has been slapped with another driving ban for speeding.

Brighton and Hove Albion FC star Jakub Moder lost his licence after being clocked speeding at 85mph.

The 24-year-old midfielder had totted up 15 penalty points.

The Poland international, who lives in Hove, was caught breaking the 70mph limit twice driving his Audi RS Quattro to training on the A27 in October and December 2022.

On October 22, 2022, he was clocked at 85mph.

Two months later on December 12 he was recorded driving at 81mph on the same road at Holmbush.

Moder does not have a British driving licence and was entitled to drive in the UK on his Polish licence.

When his first speeding offence was clocked, the DVLA created a "ghost licence" as a record of his driving.

A ghost licence is created when a driver on a foreign licence commits an offence.

Crawley Magistrates' Court heard he was banned for six months last year and again for 12 months after breaking the speed limits in Derby and Cambridgeshire.

Details of a third speeding offence could not be located by the DVLA.

The case was reopened after an application from the player.

Moder was not present at the hearing and his representative Mark Haslam confirmed his guilty pleas.

"He was disqualified but didn't know about it,” he said.

"These were administrative issues not in his control.

"He has already paid quite a significant penalty.”

Magistrates accepted the case was an administrative mess.

Magistrates fined him a total of £628 after hearing the player is a high-income offender.

Moder will pay a £292 fine, £220 costs and a £116 surcharge as well as having the six month ban.

The Seagulls favourite, who will join up with his Polish teammates at Euro 2024 in Germany this summer, was given 28 days to pay his fine.
