Jake Livermore to face no drugs suspension

Hull midfielder Jake Livermore will face no suspension after testing positive for a prohibited substance due to "the specific and unique nature of the circumstances surrounding the case", the Football Association has announced.

The club can confirm that an independent commission appointed by the FA have found no fault or negligence against Jake Livermore with regards to his failed drugs test following our game with Crystal Palace in April.

Jake’s suspension at the club has been lifted and given the circumstances surrounding the matter we will look to support Jake as he continues to recover from what has been a difficult period for him and his family.

Finally, any internal disciplinary measures will be kept confidential and the club will make no statement in respect of whether any internal measures are taken.
