And they looked on as the woman deleted incendiary photos and messages sent by the footballer — in return for £20,000 hush money.

The involvement of the club’s employee made the woman feel under pressure, she told pals.

A source said: “Clamping down on a vulnerable woman’s right to speak out should be a million miles from the role of a major club or its staff members.

"It leaves a very sour taste in the mouth and makes many people feel deep unease. Heads must roll.” The Sun on Sunday revealed last weekend that the married player sneaked off for hotel sex sessions with his mistress around London away games.

His affair with the single mum began before, but continued after, he tied the knot with his oblivious wife.

But when the Three Lions star’s wife became suspicious and he grew nervous of being exposed he brought in the lawyers to silence his lover.

But use of an non-disclosure agreement, or NDA, brought condemnation from anti-abuse campaigners at Women’s Aid. An insider said: “It’s extraordinary that in the MeToo era a rich footballer can shut down a woman with a legal document simply because he doesn’t want the world to know about his sordid affair.”
