Southampton duo Nathan Dyer and Bradley Wright-Phillips have been charged with burglary, Hampshire Police have confirmed.

The charges relate to an alleged theft of items from a staffroom at a Portsmouth nightclub on 28th February earlier this year.

Dyer and Wright-Phillips attended Portsmouth Central Police Station on Wednesday morning before being charged and bailed to appear before the city's magistrates' court on 8th July.

The investigation by Hampshire police was launched after two men were filmed on CCTV entering the unlocked staff room at the Bar Bluu club in Southsea.

Staff members claimed that during a night when the venue hosted R&B star Kano, three mobile phones, £145 in cash, student cards and cigarettes were allegedly stolen from three handbags.

Young winger Dyer came through the ranks at Southampton and has scored three goals in 61 appearances for the Championship club.

Former Manchester City striker Wright-Phillips has netted 19 times in 87 games since joining Saints two years ago.
