No charges are to be brought against Wolves striker Freddy Eastwood following an incident in a Basildon nightclub on Saturday.
The Welsh international, 23, who moved to Wolves from Southend United for an undisclosed fee in July, was arrested but later released without charge.
Explaining the situation, Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey told the club's website, www.wolves.co.uk: "We have spoken to Freddy who tells us that when he stepped in to help break up an incident involving his brother-in-law he was punched and defended himself.
"The police confirmed he was subsequently arrested, questioned, cautioned, released without charge, and that no further action will be taken.
"As far as we're concerned, that is the end of the matter but we have reminded all our players to be mindful of being drawn into such incidents as this."
On the playing field, Wolves could be without promising 19-year-old midfielder Stephen Gleeson for up to three weeks.
He was taken to hospital after colliding with the Sky Blues' goalkeeper in the dying minutes of the reserve team's 3-1 defeat against Coventry.
"It was a nasty clash and although Stephen was conscious he said his legs and one of his arms felt strange," said concerned club physio Barry Holmes.
"As we couldn't be sure whether that was a result of an awkward landing, or whether there was a possibility of a neck injury, we took him off to hospital as a precaution."
On a more positive note, fellow midfielder Lewis Gobern could be back in full training as early as next week following his ankle injury.
But Mark Davies, a long-term absentee, will be forced to wait a little longer as he recovers from a combination of glandular fever and a knee operation.
