Dane Rashford, 31, is the director of a sports management company, with his brother Marcus, 26, listed among the outfit's clients.

Dane Rashford was arrested on October 20 in Miami Beach charged with misdemeanour of battery.

He was bailed on a $1,500 (£1,224) pre-trial bond and is no longer behind bars. Law enforcement officials in the US are unsure if he is still in the country.

He and Manchester United declined to comment on the case. A source told LBC the matter was private and everyone has ‘moved on’.

A lawyer for Mr Rashford, Alex Spiro, said in January: "There have been numerous reports about Dane Rashford, the brother of Manchester United and England footballer, Marcus Rashford, being arrested in Florida last year.

"We want to make it very clear that the charges were quickly dismissed and Mr Rashford did not even have to appear in court. He and his partner are pleased that this misunderstanding is now firmly behind them."
