Stephane Sessegnon has been banned from driving for 20 months after admitting drinking and driving, reports BBC News. The 29-year-old forward, who joined West Bromwich Albion from Sunderland last month, was arrested in Newcastle as his teammates played in a cup match.

Newcastle magistrates heard he was found to be more than double the legal limit when he was stopped on 27 August.

The Benin international also admitted a number of insurance offences.

He was fined £7,605 and also given three penalty points over a driving offence in February.
