Fabian Delph 'Furious' With Everton Over Off The Pitch Turmoil

Former England star Fabian Delph is 'furious' with how Everton have handled the suspension of a first-team player, according to reports.

Earlier this week, Greater Manchester Police confirmed that a 31-year-old Premier League footballer had been arrested on suspicion of child sex offences.

The player had his home raided by police and was arrested last Friday. His identity has not been revealed.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Everton confirmed that a first-team player had been suspended pending a police investigation, but provided no further details.

The statement read: "Everton can confirm it has suspended a first-team player pending a police investigation.

"The club will continue to support the authorities with their inquiries and will not be making any further statement at this time."

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Bradley Johnson has since taken to social media to slam police after disclosing the age of the arrested footballer.

The news followed widespread online speculation regarding the player in question, with Toffees left-back Delph said to be unhappy with the club's failure to adequately clarify the situation, according to The Athletic.

Following Everton's shock statement, Delph - twice a Premier League winner with Manchester City - took to Instagram to quell any further speculation that he could be him.

Making his first post on the social media platform for almost three months, the 31-year-old uploaded a photo of himself in preseason training with the caption: "Working hard in pre-season".
