FIFA's disciplinary chief has confirmed that Luis Suarez will be allowed to have a medical ahead of a transfer under the terms of his four-month ban for biting.

The Liverpool and Uruguay striker has been forbidden from undertaking any football-related activity during the four months after his bite on Italy's Giorgio Chiellini in the Celeste's 1-0 first-round win against the Azzurri.

Claudio Sulser, the head of FIFA's disciplinary committee, told reporters: "The player cannot have any activity related to football, but a medical examination for a transfer, yes - the sanction is not linked to transfer rights."

Suarez, who has appealed his ban, is currently the subject of talks between the Merseyside outfit and Barcelona.
