He was arrested three months ago following a domestic dispute with his partner.

Police were called at 1.50am on Friday where Lualua was arrested.

Portsmouth Football Club: "There won't be any statement on behalf of the club - we are still looking into this ourselves.

"He is not due to play this weekend because he is currently injured."

The striker has not played for Portsmouth for six weeks because of a thigh injury.

2001/2004 L.Lua Lua 19/67 8 Big money signing from Colchester United as a teenager, £2.25m. Tall and 'Leggy', and made more of an impact in matches coming on as substitute ... bit like Temuri Ketsbaia. Constantly refered to by SKY TV as taking 37 games to score his first goal, but add together all of those sub appearances and you'd be lucky to make 5 full games. Lost patience trying to establish himself and went on loan to Portsmouth in 2004, insisting he wanted to sign for them. Scored a late goal AGAINST Newcastle that cost them a Champions League place, and had everyone asking "Why was he allowed to play against his own team?". Signed for Portsmouth in the summer of 2004.
