It is claimed that the player was out partying with a friend when police officers walked into the club they were at to arrest him on charges that cannot be confirmed at this point. 

According to The Sun, a club spokesman said: "Brighton & Hove Albion are aware that one of its players is assisting police with the investigation of an alleged offence. 

"The matter is subject to a legal process and the club is, therefore, unable to make further comment at this time."

The France defender was reportedly refused bail in August and is currently behind bars at a facility in Liverpool, where he awaits a trial set for early next year.
