He now faces six counts of rape and one of sexual assault.

A second man, Louis Saha Matturie, 40, was also handed two additional counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

Both Mendy and Matturie will appear at Stockport Magistrates’ Court on November 17.

Last month, Mendy was denied bail by a judge at a 50-minute hearing at Chester Crown Court and is held on remand at HMP Altcourse, Liverpool.

It was the third bail application Mendy had made.

He is yet to enter pleas to the charges.

Mendy was first charged on August 26, with three counts of rape relating to an alleged incident in October 2020 and with the sexual assault of a woman in early January this year. 

He is also charged with raping a woman in August.

The Sun last month revealed that Man City player Jack Grealish and fellow ace Riyad Mahrez were at a nightclub with Mendy hours before he is said to have raped a girl.

Man City suspended the Premier League left-back in August, pending an investigation.

Mendy, who joined City in 2017 from Monaco, earns about £100,000 a week.

Since joining the Blues, he has won the ­Premier League three times, two League Cups and the Community Shield, despite making just 50 appearances for the club.
