Three Leicester City players remained in custody on Friday night as the Spanish authorities continued to probe an alleged assault on three women in a hotel.Another six Leicester players arrested over the incident were returning to England, as the club acknowledged it was a bad day both for Leicester City and English football.

Keith Gillespie, Paul Dickov and Frank Sinclair were remanded in custody by an investigating judge, Cartagena court officials said. The three also face charges of forced entry, understood to be into a hotel room.Matt Elliott, Lilian Nalis and James Scowcroft were released, with Scowcroft ordered to pay 20,000 euros (£13,300) bail and attend a Spanish consulate twice a month.Nikos Dabizas and Danny Coyne were "provisionally released" following a hearing on Thursday and a ninth player, Steffen Freund, was released earlier without charge.A group of men were said to have barged into a room at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the La Manga sports resort and attacked the women, leaving them with multiple injuries.

The Premiership strugglers had flown their players to Spain for a warm weather break and some crucial team-bonding but the incident has thrown the club into crisis as they now face the prospect of having to play crucial matches without key players.It is believed the players were remanded after they took part in an identification process involving the alleged victims.They now faced a prolonged stay in a Spanish jail and, if convicted, long sentences.

Micky Adams has revealed he offered to quit as Leicester manager following events during the club's training camp in La Manga which have left three players in prison and facing sexual aggression charges.Adams admitted he felt a "moral obligation" to stand down if chairman Jim McCahill and the rest of the board believed he was not "the right man to take this club forward."But the former Fulham boss was backed by the Foxes hierarchy and is now determined to try to pick up the pieces of a nightmare few days and strive to keep the club in the Premiership.

Paul Dickov, Keith Gillespie and Frank Sinclair have been detained in a Spanish jail since Thursday evening after allegations were made against them by three German women.

The three Leicester players accused of serious sexual assault are to spend another two nights in prison ahead of finally appearing in court on Thursday.There had been hopes Paul Dickov, Keith Gillespie and Frank Sinclair would be released on bail today, but the judge involved in the case - Jacinto Areste - is awaiting the results of forensic evidence being reviewed in Madrid.

Judge Areste also has 300 pages of evidence and statements to sift through, and so has chosen not to address the case until Thursday, by which time the three players will have spent seven nights in Sangonera prison.There is also the prospect the trio could face their accused - three African women who live in Germany - in a direct confrontation at the Palace of Justice in Cartagena as Spanish law permits such a meeting.

The three Leicester players accused of sexual assault have been given bail after a court hearing in Cartagena, Spain on Thursday.

However the lawyer representing Paul Dickov, Frank Sinclair and Keith Gillespie said they may have to spend another night in jail if they are unable to raise bail money in time. Dickov, Sinclair and Gillespie have been accused of attacking three women at their hotel in southern Spain. They deny the allegations. The decision followed a marathon day of legal proceedings at the court.

Leicester manager Micky Adams has vowed to put a blanket drinking ban on his players during future overseas trips after the La Manga affair.Adams admitted that "a minority" of his squad did participate in a late-night drinking session in Spain at the start of a training camp.It was events during the same evening that saw Paul Dickov, Frank Sinclair and Keith Gillespie charged with serious sexual offences after allegations made against them by three women in Spain.Now Adams will order his squad to cut out the booze totally on any forthcoming trips to the continent while the players' bar at the Walkers Stadium will now become non-alcoholic.

Micky Adams has declared his Leicester City players will be "stupid" if they fail to heed the lessons of their ill-fated La Manga training camp.The Foxes are attempting to revert back to normal life with Paul Dickov, Frank Sinclair and Keith Gillespie returning to training after being granted bail following charges of sexual aggression in Spain.Adams has staunchly defended his players and adopted the 'innocent until proven guilty' stance since nine of his squad were initially arrested 10 days ago.But he has acknowledged that certain players did let themselves down via a bout of late-night drinking on the same night as an alleged incident which led to Dickov, Sinclair and Gillespie being charged after allegations made by three women.Dickov, Sinclair and Gillespie will play for the reserves on Tuesday at Southampton and Adams will assess their performance and mental state before deciding whether they will feature against Everton on Saturday.In the meantime, the club will conduct an internal investigation and Adams wants to hear all the evidence from his players before deciding if disciplinary measures are required.
