PSG defender Aurier denied entry to UK

<p>Paris St Germain defender Serge Aurier has been prevented from entering the UK by authorities and will therefore miss Wednesday nights Champions League match at Arsenal.</p> <p>The reason given by the home office for refusing Aurier’s entry into the UK is based on the 23-year-old’s conviction for an assault of a police officer for which he was given a two month suspended prison sentence in September.</p> <p>He was found guilty of assaulting the officer outside a Paris nightclub after being stopped for a breath test.</p> <p>The player strongly denies the charges and is appealing the ruling although under UK law there is no right to appeal against a visa refusal.</p>
