FIFA: 'Luis Suarez allowed to have medical'

Claudio Sulser, FIFA's disciplinary chief, confirms that Luis Suarez will be allowed to have a medical ahead of a transfer under the terms of his four-month ban.

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.

President of FIFA, Joseph 'Sepp' Blatter, gives a press conference following a meeting of the FIFA task force with Paletestinian and Israelian football federations in Zurich, on September 3, 2013
