    What is ex-Man Utd star Dwight Yorke’s net worth, when did he split from Katie Price and is he Harvey Price’s father?

    FORMER Aston Villa and Man Utd legend Dwight Yorke was one of the most lethal forwards of his generation.
    Part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s treble winners in 1999, Yorke famously dated Katie Price – here’s all you need to know about the ex-striker…

    What football teams has Dwight Yorke played for?

    Yorke began his career at Villa and was first discovered by the late Graham Taylor in 1989 while the club was on a tour of the West Indies.
    He stayed at the club for nine years until he moved to Manchester United in 1998, where he starred in the 1999 treble-winning side.
    A speedy striker, Yorke was something of a super-sub and netted a number of key goals off the bench.
    In 2002 he signed to Blackburn Rovers for £2million and stayed for two years before spending one year at Birmingham City.

    Three years later he headed Down Under to Sydney FC, where he was reportedly picking up a wage of $1million a season.
    He went on to play for Sunderland in 2006 where his ex-teammate Roy Keane was manager at the time.
    Dwight retired from football at the end of the 2008/2009 season and went into punditry.

    What is Dwight Yorke’s net worth?
    Yorke was forced to attend an insolvency meeting after falling into debt in 2018.

    In 2017 he also faced financial troubles but a petition against him was dropped after his debts fell to below £5,000.
    As a result he was forced to put the Cheshire mansion he shared with his ex Katie Price on the market.
    And in March 2018, he was forced to knock £100,000 off the £2.25 million asking price. 
    A source told The Sun’s Bizarre column: “Dwight’s been desperately trying to get his finances back on track over the past year as his company’s assets dwindled to just £2.
    They added: “When you think of how successful Dwight was as a player, it is really quite difficult to believe it has come to this.”

    In December 2018, the former Trinidad and Tobago international forked out £1.5million after being the subject of a bankruptcy petition from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
    Since hanging up his boots in 2009, Yorke has worked as a pundit for Sky Sports, while he also briefly held the position of assistant manager for the Trinidad and Tobago national team.
    As of 2021, his net worth is estimated by CelebrityNetWorth to be £18.3million.

    When did Dwight Yorke split from Katie Price?
    Dwight Yorke dated Katie Price briefly in 2001.
    He is the father of her son Harvey who was born the following year after they’d split.
    Katie has repeatedly slammed her ex for not wanting to see their disabled son. 
    In her book Love, Lipstick and Lies she described how Dwight met Harvey after his 10th birthday – but only because her mum rang his manager.
    She wrote: “It wasn’t a friendly meeting and I didn’t hear from Dwight afterwards. It’s such a shame. All I can say is that he is missing out on a very special little boy.
    “Personally, I think he is scared of seeing Harvey…Dwight should try. He would get so much love in return.”

    As well as Harvey, Yorke has a son called Orlando who was born in 2007.
    And in October 2019, Price threatened to confront Harvey’s dad by turning up unannounced at his house on camera with their son.
    She told the camera: “What I would like to do is turn up to his dad’s place – Dwight Yorke’s – ring on the doorbell and be there with Harvey, for him to see Harvey.
    “That’s what I would like to do and I will do that. I think Dwight should start entering Harvey’s life, it’s been years.”
    In January 2021, Price made the heart-wrenching decision to put Harvey into care.
    Katie, 42, told The Sun: “It breaks my heart. I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him.” More

    Why are Tottenham playing Fulham instead of Aston Villa on Wednesday and when is Villa vs Spurs?

    TOTTENHAM will be in action this week but not against the opposition they expected.
    Jose Mourinho’s men will now face Fulham at home, rather than Aston Villa away.

    Why are Tottenham playing Fulham instead of Aston Villa?

    Aston Villa last week confirmed 14 positive Covid cases.
    This forced them to field their development squad in their FA Cup 3rd round match against Liverpool – a tie they lost 4-1.
    However, while FA Cup rules deem a match to be forfeited if one club can’t field a team, the Premier League allows matches to be moved to a latter date in the event of a Covid outbreak.
    This was exactly what happened with Tottenham’s match against Fulham, which was initially scheduled for December 30.

    And Jose Mourinho was left fuming at the prospect of another postponement.
    The Special One even suggested his side could refuse to play Villa at a later date if they are forced into a situation like at the beginning of the season, where they played eight games in three weeks due to Europa League commitments.
    Mourinho’s comments appear to have forced the Premier League to act and they have moved the Fulham game to Wednesday night – the date the Villa match was supposed to happen.

    When will Aston Villa vs Tottenham be played now?
    No rearranged date has been found yet for Aston Villa vs Tottenham.
    A date could conceivably be found on the midweek commencing Monday, February 8, when no Premier League football is scheduled to take place.
    When is Tottenham vs Fulham?
    Tottenham vs Fulham takes place on Wednesday, January 11.
    Kick-off is at 8.15pm at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
    Fulham vs Chelsea has now been moved from Friday, January 15 to Saturday, January 16 at 5.30pm. More
