Knockaert arrested in city fracas

Leicester City midfielder Anthony Knockaert was arrested on Saturday night, the club has confirmed.

Leicestershire Police released a statement earlier today to confirm the Frenchman's detention, allegedly following a disturbance involving fellow summer signing Jamie Vardy and a supporter of a rival team.

Speculation surrounding Knockaert's arrest centres around verbal abuse aimed toward the Foxes' players to which they are alleged to have responded.

The Police confirmed that a 21-year-old man was arrested at 03:15 on Sunday morning and has since been released on bail, pending further inquiries.

A Leicester City spokesman said: "We are conducting a full inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident. As a result of the ongoing police process, we are unable to make any further comment at this time."

It is not yet known if this news will affect Knockaert's selection ahead of Saturday's home fixture against Barnsley.
