Jose Baxter cleared to play football despite failed drugs test

Sheffield United midfielder Jose Baxter is cleared to play football despite failing a drugs test.

Sheffield United midfielder Jose Baxter has been cleared to play football despite being found guilty of failing a drugs test.

The 23-year-old was temporarily banned last season after providing a positive sample during out-of-competition testing.

Baxter has already served part of his sentence, while the remainder has been suspended for the next two years following a Football Association hearing.

Despite being found guilty, the former Everton player insisted that he did not knowingly take a banned substance.
