Leicester City attacker Ahmed Musa has been arrested on suspicion of attacking his wife and released without charge.
Police were called to his address late on Tuesday, after the club’s 2-0 victory over Sunderland, a game he was not included in the squad for.
Musa was eventually arrested around 1 a.m. on Wednesday morning and taken for questioning before being released without charge.
A spokesman from Leicestershire Police said, “A 24-year-old man was arrested yesterday morning at his home address near Leicester on suspicion of common assault.”
The Nigeria international was signed by former manager Claudio Ranieri from CSKA Moscow for a club-record fee of £16 million last summer, but has since played only 14 minutes of football since Ranieri’s sacking.
