Bournemouth defender Steve Cook, who was playing for Brighton at the time, has also been charged.

Dunk and Barker, both 20, Rodgers, 19, and Cook, 21, have been bailed to appear at Brighton Magistrates Court on May 11.

Brighton defender Ben Sampayo, 19, has been told no further action will be taken against him over the alleged incident after he was arrested.

A sixth player, Seagulls midfielder Tommy Elphick, 24, was released without charge following the original arrests in January.

The charges come after a four-month investigation by Sussex Police.
