A Premier League player has been arrested on suspicion of child sex offences.
The 31-year-old player – who has not been named – was arrested on Friday and has been bailed while police continue to investigate.
The player’s club confirmed he has been suspended pending the police investigation.
The club added: “The club will continue to support the authorities with their inquiries and will not be making any further statement at this time.”
A statement, from Greater Manchester Police, read: “Officers arrested a 31-year-old man on Friday 16 July 2021 on suspicion of child sex offences.
“He is on police bail pending further enquiries.”
A source told The Mirror: “This has caused a massive shock.
