Stoke City's Kenwyne Jones has been fined after refusing to play against Liverpool.

Jones was missing from the Potters' matchday squad when they were beaten 5-3 at the Britannia Stadium in the league on Sunday.

It was subsequently reported that the 29-year-old Trinidad and Tobago international - rumoured to be a transfer target of Everton - had sent a text message to Hughes on the night before to say he was unavailable for selection and, as a result, had been fined the equivalent of two weeks' wages.

More on this can be found on the ITV Football website.


'No stone unturned' in Hillsborough police search

West Midlands Police says it will leave "no stone unturned" as it looks in its archives for material related to the Hillsborough disaster.

96 Liverpool fans died during their team's FA cup semi final 23 years ago.

An independent report last year said the Midlands force knew statements had been changed to protect senior officers in South Yorkshires from criticism.

West Midlands Police Deputy Chief Constable Dave Thompson, said:

"We are committed to the IPCC’s Hillsborough investigation and supporting the coroner’s inquest into the disaster which is scheduled for early 2014.

"We have no reason to believe West Midlands Police holds any more Hillsborough related material but, due to the recent finds, we want to be able to assert this with the highest degree of confidence to the inquest coroner."

Police statement on Hillsborough investigation

I welcome today's decision by the IPCC to look into the role of West Midlands Police following the tragedy at Hillsborough in 1989.

As Chief Constable I read the Hillsborough Independent Panel Report and immediately referred West Midlands Police to the IPCC.

Today, the IPCC have accepted that referral and West Midlands Police will give their full support to the IPCC investigation.
