Nigeria and Leicester winger Ahmed Musa has been arrested on suspicion of attacking his wife.
Musa was quizzed at his £850,000 five-bedroom home in Countesthorpe, Leicestershire, just hours after his side's 2-0 win over Sunderland.
Police received a domestic abuse complaint against the £16.6million Super Eagles attacker.
He was not at home when they first arrived at the home so officers made inquiries with shocked neighbours in the upmarket neighbourhood.
The former CSKA Moscow forward was eventually arrested at 1am yesterday by two plain-clothed policewomen after he returned home.
The father-of-two Musa was grilled for allegedly beating his wife Jamila and was released without charge.
A spokesman for Leicestershire Police said: 'A 24-year-old man was arrested yesterday morning at his home address near Leicester on suspicion of common assault.'
A neighbour said: 'Ahmed is a nice guy. He always has a friendly smile. I don't know anything about his private life.'
Another man in the quiet road said: 'You never hear noise coming from the house. I had no idea the police had been called there.'
A Leicester City spokesman said: 'We are aware that Ahmed Musa has today cooperated with a police inquiry relating to a disturbance in the early hours of this morning.
'The inquiry has since been closed and no further action is to be taken.
'We see no reason for formal action internally, though Ahmed will be given the opportunity to discuss the matter with football management when the squad returns.'
