Former England star Paul Gascoigne is reportedly hospitalised following another drinking binge.

Former England international Paul Gascoigne reportedly faces homelessness after his latest drinking binge left him hospitalised.

Police and paramedics were sent to the ex-Tottenham Hotspur star's flat in Dorset after he was seen slumped outside clutching a bottle of vodka, according to The Mirror.

Gascoigne is said to have been in the process of eviction from his £3m rented penthouse apartment in the Sandbanks area of Poole following noise complaints from neighbours.

The 47-year-old, who has struggled with alcoholism for many years, was reportedly taken to Poole Hospital for treatment.

Gascoigne checked himself into a £6,000-a-month clinic in Southampton in January in a bid to quit booze, his seventh attempt to receive professional help.

The incident comes shortly after Gascoigne signed for Sunday league side Abbey Windows FC, who purchased him for a fee of just £8.
