Discgraced footballer Adam Johnson has lost his appeal to be freed from a Doncaster jail.
The former Sunderland star, serving a six year sentence at HMP Moorland for sexual offences against a 15-year-old fan, has had his case rejected by the Court of Appeal this morning.
The Ex-England footballer had challenged his conviction for sexual activity with a schoolgirl.
The 29-year-old was jailed last March for sexually touching and grooming the supporter.
He was refused leave to appeal his conviction and sentence in July, but launched a second bid late last year.
A panel of three appeal judges turned down the former Sunderland player's latest bid.
