The former Wolves player Shaun Newton is being hunted by police after failing to appear in court on burglary charges.

The 41-year old ex pro, who was part of the Wolves team that won promotion to the Premier League in 2003, is being sought by London’s Metropolitan Police over an offence he was arrested for last year.

Newton had been due to appear in Kingston Crown Court on October 13 after he was detained in May, but the former Charlton and West Ham man failed to turn up to court after being bailed.

Officers in the Merton borough have now launched a wanted appeal, where Newton is described as a black male, approximately 5ft 8in tall, with an athletic build and cropped black hair.
