An Everton footballer who was arrested on suspicion of child sex offences has had his bail extended.

Police raided his house and arrested the player last July and his bail was extended back in October to this month.

Now his bail period has been extended again, this time until this coming Wednesday, as confirmed by Greater Manchester Police.

The player – who cannot be named for legal reasons – remains suspended by his club, who have been assisting the police with their investigation.

A statement at the time of his suspension read: “Everton can confirm it has suspended a player pending a police investigation.

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

Police have not yet charged the player with any offences.

Shortly after the arrest, a source told the Mirror : “This has caused a massive shock.

“Any suggestion of allegations of offences involving a child are rightly taken seriously from the point they are made.”

The insider added: “Clearly this matter must be fully investigated. Allegations of this nature will cause a considerable amount of alarm among everyone within the club, the fans, and the wider public.

“This is now a case of waiting to see where the investigation takes us.”
