Former England and Aston Villa footballer Lee Hendrie has been declared bankrupt.

A petition for bankruptcy was brought against the 34-year-old midfielder by HM Revenue and Customs on December 19, the High Court was told.

The court heard that Mr Hendrie, who did not attend the hearing in central London, has not paid any of his debts.

He is now signed with Kidderminster Harriers and reportedly earned £24,000 a week at the height of his career.

The former Premier League player, who won his only England cap in 1998, has homes in Solihull, West Midlands, and Rowington, Warwickshire.

He was signed for Bandung FC in Indonesia in 2011 on a two-year contract but returned before the end of the year.

Hendrie has also played for Sheffield United, Leicester and Blackpool.

Mrs Registrar Derrett heard that there had been no contact from Hendrie, no letters had been returned and no payments made.

She said she was making the bankruptcy order “in the absence of any contact”.
