Greater Manchester Police have confirmed they have applied to extend the bail of Man Utd forward Mason Greenwood with his current conditions set to expire on Saturday 30 April.

Greenwood was arrested in January on suspicion of rape, assault and threats to kill.

The England international was subsequently suspended by Man Utd and with his current bail terms on the verge of expiration, the GMP have announced that they have applied for an extension with the investigation ongoing.

"We are continuing to investigate a report made to us on Sunday 30 January of online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence. A 20-year-old man arrested that day on suspicion of the rape and assault of a woman, and threats to kill, remains on bail," a statement read.

"An application has been made to the courts to have his bail extended beyond Saturday 30 April, but the hearing isn't expected to be until mid-June. The suspect will remain on conditional bail until the date of the court hearing."
