QPR midfielder Joey Barton will face no action after being arrested on suspicion of affray last month.
The 29-year-old was allegedly involved in a fight with two men outside a nightclub in Liverpool city centre in the early hours of June 4.
Barton was reportedly on a night out with his girlfriend when the incident took place.
A spokesman for Merseyside Police said today: “Merseyside Police can confirm that four men arrested in connection with an altercation in Eberle Street, Liverpool city centre on June 4 will face no further police action.

“All four have now been notified by the police that, following advice from the Crown Prosecution Service, they will not face any further action.”
