    “While in custody, he was further arrested on suspicion of two incidents of rape that were alleged to have been committed in April and June of 2021 against a different woman in her 20s.

    “No further action will be taken in relation to the offence in June 2021 but the investigation into the remaining offences is ongoing.

    “The main was initially bailed until a date in August but his bail has since been extended to a date in early October.”

    The footballer, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was quizzed for at least 15 hours over an alleged attack against the first woman, in her 20s.
