Promes, who signed for Ajax in 2019, has been suspected of assault and causing serious physical injury as a result.

De Telegraaf reports that the crime carries a maximum of four years in prison.

A police spokesman, Jelmer Geerds, told the publication that the arrest was made on Sunday morning.

Geerds confirmed that a 28-year-old man from Amsterdam had been arrested, but he refused to reveal more details on the background of the suspect.

The former Sevilla and Spartak Moscow man will have to stay in jail for a maximum of three days, but De Telegraaf claims that pre-trial detention can be extended again.

De Telegraaf says that Promes held a 'large family party' in a warehouse in Abcoude.

The publication suggested that the Netherlands international was involved in a 'fierce argument' with a family member for 'unknown reasons.'

De Telegraaf added that Promes allegedly stabbed the victim, who was 'seriously injured' from the attack.

The man involved in the attack reported the stabbing a month ago, but it remains unclear why it took so long for the police to make the arrest.

"We only heard about the incident a month ago. An investigation was then started and this morning led to an arrest," Geerds said.

Promes made his professional debut for Twente in 2011 and has played for Spartak Moscow, Sevilla and Ajax in his club career.
