Sunderland midfielder Adam Johnson had his life turned upside down last night after he was arrested over allegations of having sex with a 15 year old girl.
The 27 year old England international was released on bail but has been suspended by his club for an unspecified length of time.
Sunderland splashed out £10m on Manchester City winger Adam Johnson in 2012 and he has since made 88 Premier League appearances for the Mackems.
The Sunderland club statement read: “Sunderland AFC has confirmed that Adam Johnson has been suspended from the club, pending the outcome of a police investigation.
“No further comment will be made at the present time.”
