Sunderland winger Adam Johnson appears set to remain available to play for the club after being charged with three offences of sexual activity with a child under 16 and one of grooming.
A spokesperson for Sunderland AFC said: "Following yesterday's statement from Durham Constabulary, the club recognises that the formal legal process must take its course and whilst our position remains unchanged, we will keep the matter under review.
"The club will not be making any further comment."
Mr Johnson, of Castle Eden in County Durham, was arrested on Monday March 2 and Sunderland AFC initially suspended him pending the outcome of the investigation, but this was lifted on March 18.
The 27-year-old was born in Sunderland and began his career at Middlesbrough FC before moving to Manchester City and then Sunderland for £10m in 2012.
He has played for the club three times since his initial arrest in March.
Mr Johnson will appear at Peterlee Magistrates' Court on the morning of May 20.
