FORMER England, Aston Villa and Blackpool footballer Lee Hendrie has been declared bankrupt.

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

The 34-year-old, who did not attend the hearing in central London, has not paid back any of his debts.

Mrs Registrar Derrett heard 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”.

Hendrie, who also played for Sheffield United, Leicester, and is now signed with Kidderminster Harriers, 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.
