It is believed that both players have been suspended by the Premier League team while a police investigation is ongoing.

According to a police spokesperson, “two men have been arrested by officers in connection with a reported rape.”

‘A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault and aiding and abetting a rape. A second 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of rape.

 

Following a wave of specialtion on social media, Wolves released a statement on Wednesday denying that it is two of their players who are involved.

‘A newspaper article published yesterday has triggered inappropriate online speculation over the identities of two individuals reportedly under police investigation,’ Wolves’ statement read.

‘Whilst we would not typically comment on ongoing police matters, in order to protect the welfare of our young players, we feel it is necessary to confirm that the allegations to not relate to anyone at Wolves.’

‘Both men have since been released on police bail.’
