Paris St Germain midfielder Aminata Diallo has been arrested in connection with an alleged attack on one of her team-mates.

French daily L'Equipe reported on Wednesday that fellow midfielder Kheira Hamraoui was attacked in the street by two masked men on Thursday, November 4.

A PSG statement on Wednesday read: "Paris St Germain can confirm that Aminata Diallo was taken into custody this morning by the Versailles Regional Police Service as part of the proceedings opened following an attack on the club's players last Thursday evening.

"Paris St Germain condemns in the strongest possible terms the violence committed.

"Since Thursday evening the club has taken all necessary measures to guarantee the health, well-being and safety of its entire women's team.

"Paris St Germain is working with the Versailles Police to clarify the facts. The club is paying close attention to the progress of the proceedings and will study what action to take."

Diallo, 26, has played for PSG for five years while fellow France international Hamraoui, 31, joined from Barcelona in July
