Aaron Lennon has been confined by under the Mental Health Act as police express ‘worries over his welfare’, as per reports. The 30-year-old, who has not played for Everton since February 11, was consulted by Police officials for 20 minutes on Sunday evening.
SunSports reports that the Everton midfielder was interrogated by police on a busy street in Salford, near the M602 motorway. It is believed that the Police consult with the £4m Ex-England midfielder.
A representative for Greater Manchester Police told MailOnline: “Police were called at around 4.35pm on Sunday, April 30, 2017, to reports of a worry for the welfare of Lennon.
“Officers went to and a 30-year-old man was kept under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act and was taken to hospital for evaluation.”
The 30-year-old joined Everton from Tottenham on the last day of the 2015 move transfer window in a £4million bargain and has featured for the Toffees in a loan spell that saw him turn into a team most loved with the Goodison Park steadfast.
This season has not gone to plan for Aaron, and he has shown up under Ronald Koeman. Lennon last played in a 0-0 draw against Middlesbrough on February 11.
Talking back on April 4 in front of Everton’s game against Manchester United, Koeman said that Lennon was “not in a physical way to be part of the team”
An Everton proclamation has since revealed that the former Leeds player is “receiving care and treatment for a stress-related illness”.
