Black Cats wide-man embroiled in major scandal.
Adam Johnson’s family have backed the Sunderland star following his arrest on a charge of underage sex according to the Daily Mail.
The 27 year old former England international was arrested last night, held at his County Durham home, following an allegation that he had sex with a 15 year old girl.
Johnson’s family have stated that the wide-man is ‘100% innocent’ whilst his long-term girlfriend has also stood by the Black Cats star.
Stacey Flounders has only recently given birth to the couple’s first child in January.
Sunderland have suspended the player pending the outcome of the investigation whilst the FA have not commented on the matter.
