Jaqueline Sousa, 34, claims the international, who cannot be named for legal reasons but is a household name, is the biological father of her 18-month-old daughter.
The Sun on Sunday revealed earlier this year how the defender invited the Brazilian hostess to his stag do and texted her on his honeymoon.
His lawyers have now said they did have a relationship and he is happy to take a DNA test.
She wants him to take the test abroad but he is insisting it happens here to avoid disrupting his training and matches.
Yesterday, Jaqueline said: “He’s not denying that we had a relationship and he’s not denying that a baby was born at the end of it and he’s happy to take a DNA test.
“But he wants it on his terms — he wants it done in England but my legal team say no because the baby was born abroad.
“In order for the test to take place, we both have to go to the same clinic to give a sample.
“I’m sure it’s because his wife doesn’t want him to see me.
“Initially, he didn’t even want to take the test and ignored legal letters but now he has agreed but it’s only on his terms.
“He said he couldn’t travel because of Covid and because it would interfere with his training and then he even said his wife was pregnant so he couldn’t take the test.
“It seems crazy that he can play football all over the world but he won’t travel to take a test.”
Jaqueline also says the player has not been in touch since their daughter was born and has not provided for them.
