Premier League footballer arrested on suspicion of child sex offences

A PREMIER League footballer has been arrested on suspicion of child sex offences.

Police raided his home this month. He was then suspended indefinitely by his club pending further investigation.

The player was arrested and interviewed by cops on Friday.

Sources said the probe was being led by Greater Manchester Police’s Major Incident Team.

One revealed: “Several items were seized by cops. He was questioned in relation to very serious offences.”

A spokesman for the club said: “We can confirm we have suspended a first-team player pending a police investigation.

“The club will continue to support the authorities with their inquiries and will not be making any further statement.”

The revelation sends shockwaves through the Premier League ahead of the new season.

There was no sign of activity at the player’s home after he returned there from the police station on Friday night.

Cops said he has been bailed pending further investigation.

A source said: “It has stunned the dressing room. Everyone’s hoping the allegations aren’t true. He has gone to ground.”

The player’s agent declined to comment.
