Wolverhampton Wanderers have said that they "welcome" the decision to ban Newcastle United midfielder Jonjo Shelvey following an allegation of abusive language towards Romain Saiss.
Shelvey has been hit with a five-match suspension and £100,000 fine by the FA after being found guilty of using racially-aggravated language during the Championship clash between the two sides on September 17.
The 24-year-old has seven days to appeal the ban, and Newcastle have confirmed that they will wait for written reasons behind the FA's decision before they decide whether to contest it.
A statement on Wolves' official website read: "Wolves welcome the verdict following the FA's investigation into an allegation of abusive and/or insulting words towards one of the club's players in the fixture at Newcastle United in September."
If the ban stands then Shelvey will be sidelined until mid-January, missing a crucial stage of Newcastle's bid for an immediate return to the Premier League.body check tags ::
