Six men, including at least three Crewe players, have been arrested in connection with an alleged sexual assault.

The League One club had been on a pre-season training camp in Cornwall when the alleged incident took place in Redruth.

A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman confirmed the arrests. He said: "At 4.30am [today], police in Redruth received a complaint of sexual assault against a woman aged in her early 20s.

"The incident is alleged to have occurred at a property in Redruth. As a result of inquiries, five men aged 35, 19, 18 and two aged 24 were arrested in connection with the incident. They remain in custody centres in Camborne and Newquay.

"Earlier this evening, a sixth man was arrested in Cheshire, aged 21 years. He will be taken back to Cornwall where he will be formally interviewed."

A spokesman for the club confirmed Crewe players were being held.

He said: "I can confirm some players have been arrested.

"From what we know there are three arrested and two helping with inquiries over an alleged sexual assault.

"The details are a bit sketchy so we can't really comment at the moment."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
