Ireland international James McClean has been suspended by Stoke City for an alleged breach of coronavirus regulations.
The alleged breach of restrictions relates to a training session in a private gym.
McClean will not be involved in the Championship clash against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday as the club has launched an internal investigation.
“Stoke City can confirm that James McClean has been suspended with immediate effect pending a disciplinary hearing into an alleged breach of COVID-19 regulations, namely training in a private gym," Stoke said in a statement.
“As a result of the suspension, McClean will not be available for selection for Saturday's game against Blackburn Rovers.”
The 31-year-old has made 16 appearances for Stoke this season.
