Police are investigating claims an Everton player assaulted a woman in a London nightclub.

Marouane Fellaini, a Belgian international, has been accused of attacking the woman in Jet Black in the the West End on Sunday.

The 22-year-old midfielder has not been arrested but Scotland Yard has confirmed the allegations are being investigated.

The alleged victim complained of a head injury, police said.

A spokesman for Everton said they were aware of the incident but would not comment further because of police involvement.

Mr Fellaini is recovering from a serious ankle injury he suffered in February which ruled him out of the rest of the season.

The woman suffered no visible injuries but she was taken to hospital as a precaution, police said.
