Ruben Semedo has avoided having to go to trial after reaching a financial agreement with the court along with acknowledging his actions, that of a simple assault.

The Villarreal player, who is currently suspended without pay arrived at the City of Justice in Valencia, where he was transferred from the Picassent prison. He was set to be tried for an alleged assault on a young man outside a nightclub in Valencia in October.

The player allegedly assaulted the man outside the nightclub by breaking a bottle over his head after an altercation inside the nightclub. Semedo remains in prison, however, waiting to be tried on the much more serious allegations of attempted murder, illegal possession of firearms and robbery.
