The 21-year-old striker, who was capped once for England, has been released on bail until a hearing on February 10 next year.

His trial date has been set for November 27, 2023, with the case expected to last 10 days.

The three counts he faces all relate to the same woman.

Greenwood wore a dark suit and hoodie as he walked into court this morning, supported by family members.

The footballer was released on bail by the same court last month, with conditions not to contact any witnesses, including the complainant, and to reside at an address in Bow Green Road in Bowdon.

The player was first arrested in January over allegations about a young woman after pictures and videos emerged online.

He had been out on bail since but was arrested in the Trafford area on October 15 for an alleged breach of conditions and then released on bail a few days later.

The controlling and coercive behavior charge relates to a period between November 2018 and October this year when Greenwood allegedly made threatening and derogatory comments towards the complainant, as well as accessing and monitoring her social media accounts.

The charge of assault causing actual bodily harm is dated December 2021.

Hours after the allegations surfaced online earlier this year, Greenwood was suspended from playing or training with the club at Old Trafford.

Nike suspended and later terminated its sponsorship deal with Greenwood, while Electronic Arts confirmed its withdrawal from active teams in its Fifa 22 game.
