Santi Mina accused of assault

Valencia midfielder Santi Mina spent a night in jail and stands accused of sexual assault, say reports in Spain.

The 21-year-old spent last Thursday night in a cell in the Almeria province after the alleged incident but was released without having to pay bail the following morning.

Cadena Ser report the said offence took place in the player’s caravan where he made unwanted sexual advances to the woman, who then made a report to the authorities.

The reports state Mina is totally denying the charges while Valencia have asked for the presumption of innocence alongside "good judgement and common sense" when reporting the case.
