Former Super Eagles captain Austin Jay Jay Okocha appeared in court in Aberdeen facing money laundering charges, according to reports from Aberdeen.

The 45-year-old ex super eagle player, who describes himself on his social media profile as "The Football Magician", made 124 appearances in the Premier League, scoring 14 goals for Bolton Wanderers between 2002 and 2006.

The former Paris Saint-Germain and Fenerbahce star, who represented Nigeria at the 1994, 1998 and 2002, World Cups, faced two charges in the closed-door hearing, according to the report.

Police began an investigation in 2015 which spanned two years before charges were brought against Okocha and six others - five of who are alleged to have carried out fraud related to North-East businesses.

The Atlanta '96 Olympic Games gold medallist, who also netted 14 times for Nigeria in 73 appearances, helped Nigeria win the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations in Tunisia, made no plea during the hearing.
