I'm hearing it's an Everton player...

Only 2 players in their squad who are 31 years old:

Fabian Delph & Gylfi Sigurdsson

Shadow picture on "The S*N" shows wavy hair, could be a random stock photo blacked out, however Sigurdsson would be the obvious pick if it was the real image because Delph has short cropped hair.

A Premier League footballer in England has been arrested on suspicion of alleged child sex offences. The footballer in question is a member of the top English Premier League club Everton and has already been suspended by the club pending further investigation. Everton on Monday issued a statement regarding the same, confirming that the club has "suspended a First-Team player".

Greater Manchester police reportedly arrested the player earlier this month. Greater Manchester police confirmed the arrest of a 31-year-old man on suspicion of child sex offences in a statement issued after the arrest. The police have yet to confirm whether the person arrested was Everton's player, but the accused has been released on bail "pending enquiries." The police also revealed a few details about the arrested person to the media, including the fact that he is a millionaire who plays for a Premier League club and also represents his country on a regular basis.

"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," Everton said in its statement.

"Officers arrested a 31-year-old man on Friday 16 July 2021 on suspicion of child sex offences. He is on police bail pending further enquiries," Greater Manchester police said in a statement.
