The Court of Arbitration for Sport confirm that a decision regarding Luis Suarez's appeal against a four-month ban will be announced on Thursday.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport has confirmed that a decision regarding Luis Suarez's appeal against a four-month ban will be announced tomorrow.

The Uruguayan international was issued with the lengthy suspension by FIFA after biting the shoulder of Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup in Brazil.

The 27-year-old, who left Liverpool for Barcelona this summer for a reported £75m fee, fought his case at a hearing in Switzerland last week alongside his legal team.

Today, CAS has announced that Suarez's fate will be made clear by 2pm UK time tomorrow.

The prolific striker's legal representatives stated before the hearing that they were confident of getting the ban halved, which would allow Suarez to play for Barcelona from August 25.

The suspension includes all football-related activity.
