Harry Maguire is set to finally receive a court date after being convicted of attacking a police officer.

The Manchester United and England defender was convicted of assaulting a police officer in Mykonos back in August 2020 and has had to wait two years for the opportunity to clear his name. The Red Devils' captain claims he was attacked by the police after intervening when his sister Daisy was targeted by two men during their holiday.

The 29-year-old was also found guilty of swearing, resisting arrest and attempted bribery in relation to the incident on the Greek island, with his brother Joe also involved in the incident.

According to The Sun, he is now set to receive a court summons for an appeal hearing in the coming weeks. Maguire will likely be required to attend the hearing in late spring or early summer next year on the island of Syros.

A Greek police source revealed: "A date for his appeal has been set. He will definitely be summoned in the next few weeks and given official notice of that date."

The expected date for the hearing will allow Maguire to focus on the upcoming World Cup at the end of this year, with England facing Iran, Wales and the USA during the group stage in Qatar.

Maguire will hope he can keep his place in Gareth Southgate's squad for the tournament despite his poor recent form. After struggling last season, the Manchester United captain has had a difficult pre-season.

He has been booed by supporters during matches on the club's tour of Thailand and Australia but will keep the captain's armband under new manager Erik ten Hag.

The former Leicester City man made 37 appearances across all competitions for the Red Devils last season as United finished sixth in the Premier League and missed out on silverware for the fifth season in a row.

United begin the new season in two weeks' time, with Brighton & Hove Albion visiting Old Trafford on August 7.
