The Football Association of Wales said it will appeal sanctions posed by FIFA after Armistice Day commemorations in 2016.

In a statement the FAW confirmed it had received written reasons from FIFA's Disciplinary Committee relating to sanctions imposed during Wales' World Cup Qualifier against Serbia on November 12, 2016.

The FAW faced a fine of 20,000 Swiss francs or £15,692 by the governing body for what it described as 'displaying political symbols' during the match, which include wreaths being laid and a poppy being created in the stands by fans.

Wales international Neil Taylor is set to leave Swansea to join Aston Villa as part of an exchange for Jordan Ayew.

26-year-old Taylor joined the Swans from Wrexham in 2010 and has established himself as a regular in the Wales side.

Paul Clement confirmed his departure at today's press conference ahead of Swansea's match against Southampton tomorrow.

That is not done yet but it is close to being done. Ayew can play wide or through the middle and I like that versatility.

Neil has been a great servant to this club but feel it is right time for new challenge and he would like to take it.

– Paul Clement, Swansea manager

Ayew is the brother of former Swansea forward Andre Ayew who left the Liberty join West Ham last summer.
