At least its not a leicester player :?Soccer Star Held for Alleged Assault on Wife
Sinclair signed for the Blues in a £2.5m deal
Manchester City's ex-England winger Trevor Sinclair has been arrested for allegedly assaulting his wife.
The Premiership star was taken into custody at 2am on Saturday, questioned at Wilmslow Police Station and later freed on bail, reports the Daily Mirror.
A spokesman for Cheshire Police said: "On July 10th, a 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault. He has been interviewed and is currently on police bail."
His arrest apparently followed a row with his wife, Natalie, at a party.
The player's agent was unavailable for comment. However, friends claimed he and Natalie are still together and the row was just "a storm in a tea cup".
Sinclair, currently in pre-season training with Manchester City, signed for the Blues in a £2.5m deal last year after leaving West Ham.
