The former France international currently awaits a retrial for rape.

It comes after he was found not guilty of six rapes and one sexual assault against four women during a high-profile trial in January.

Jurors could not reach verdicts on one count of rape and one of attempted rape against two other alleged victims after 67 hours and 17 minutes of deliberations.

Mendy’s lawyer said he was “delighted” to have been cleared of sex attacks and “look forward” to clearing his name at re-trial.

He will return to court on June 26.

Mendy signed a six-year £28million contract with Man City, which included an annual average salary of £4,680,000, in 2017.
