Everton, on Monday, confirmed they will be suspending one of their first-team members pending an investigation into alleged child sex offences.
The club did not and has still not released the name of the player in question despite rumours going around on social media suggesting it is a certain midfielder. As far as identity goes, police have only confirmed his age, stating he’s 31 years old.
No reputable source have come forward and reinforced that is indeed the aforementioned midfielder being suggested by most.
The Toffees have acted swiftly in the matter and will continue to support the authorities as they get to the bottom of this.

Let’s hope this does not stop the progress made at Goodison Park
Rafael Benítez has some ill vibes to deal with after just taking over. Hopefully, this will not be a detent in the motion and progress made at Finch Farm continues as it was before all this hell broke loose.
The club is close to making a couple of good additions which will certainly lift the morale. They are said to be a medical away from signing former Leicester City player, Demarai Gray.
An agreement away from acquiring the services of Andros Townsend, who left Crystal Palace on a free. The one that should get most excited is the potential deal and latent arrival of Denzel Dumfries from PSV Eindhoven.
If they can snatch the latter, Rafa and Everton will have quite the attacking threat in their full-back department. The Blues of Merseyside has an exciting chapter on their hands now with Rafa at the helm.
Yes, it’s a step backwards after losing Carlo Ancelotti but they have replaced him with another world-class manager in the Spaniard.
