Sunderland’s winger, Adam Johnson was on Monday arrested by Durham Police. The former Manchester City winger was suspected of having sexual relations with a fifteen year old.
Adam Johnson was billed to travel with the Sunderland team to take on Hull City, but Johnson was detained after the midfielder was involved in sexual activities with an under aged girl two nights earlier. Johnson was bailed later in the day with the Durham Police expected to press charges in coming weeks. Sunderland have suspended the player pending the outcome of the investigation and if found guilty, Adam Johnson’s career at Sunderland could come to an abrupt end. The English FA has also offered support in the ongoing investigation and might punish Johnson if he is found guilty.
Adam Johnson’ and his representatives have so far declined to comment on the situation.
