Police were called to his home on Tuesday night, just hours after the club’s 2-0 victory over Sunderland.

Two plain-clothed policewoman then arrested Musa around 1am on Wednesday morning and taken for questioned after being accused of beating his wife, Jamila, but was released without charge.
A Leicestershire Police spokesman said: “A 24-year-old man was arrested yesterday morning at his home address near Leicester on suspicion of common assault.”
Leicester City said that they were aware of the investigation, but confirmed that they will not be taking action against the player after the matter was closed.
“We are aware that Ahmed Musa has today cooperated with a police inquiry relating to a disturbance in the early hours of this morning,” a Leicester City spokesman said.
“’The inquiry has since been closed and no further action is to be taken.
“We see no reason for formal action internally, though Ahmed will be given the opportunity to discuss the matter with football management when the squad returns.”
