He is also said to have sent her abusive late-night messages.

The footballer hired lawyers before agreeing a payout — thought to be a five-figure sum — in an out-of-court settlement.

The revelation comes after Manchester United star Mason Greenwood, 20, was arrested and bailed last month on suspicion of rape, assault and threats to kill.

A football source said yesterday: “This is quite disturbing, especially coming after the claims about Greenwood.

“In this case, the player used his money to get lawyers to sort it out for him and keep it out of the public eye.

“He reached a settlement and that has effectively silenced the girl in question and stopped court action.

“Her claims though were very serious, and included at least one allegation of domestic assault.”

Police confirmed they were called but the player faced no further action because a “community resolution” was agreed.

The star, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested in 2019 and is no longer in a relationship with his accuser.

Teresa Parker, of Women’s Aid and founder of the Football United Against Domestic Violence campaign, believes players’ money is used to sweep abuse under the carpet.

She said: “This case shows how the significant amount of power and money within football can mean that allegations of domestic abuse — or other forms of violence against women by players — are seen as issues to be managed.

“As in this case, what can happen is that every effort is taken to make what is seen as a problem go away.

“All football clubs and organisations need to have domestic abuse policies, to ensure they do not become the enablers and excusers of men who abuse their partners.”

Greenwood has been suspended by Man United after disturbing images and audio of his injured girlfriend were posted.
