Papy Djilobodji will serve a four-match ban

Papy Djilobodji will serve a four-match suspension with immediate effect after his violent conduct charge was found proven.

It was alleged the Sunderland defender was involved in a 86th-minute incident with West Bromwich Albion’s Darren Fletcher on Saturday [21 January 2017] which was not seen by the match officials but was caught on video.

He denied the charge, however it was found proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.

The suspension includes the additional standard game as it was the player’s second dismissal this season.
