Wolves goalkeeper Aaron McCarey has been banned for four months by the Football Association (FA) after failing a drugs test, though he will not miss any game time.
Earlier this year, it was announced that McCarey had been found to have had a non-performance enhancing substance in his system during an out-of-competition test.
McCarey’s ban has been backdated to the date of the original suspension – April 21 – with the remaining time suspended for two years.
That means McCarey is available for Wolves’ competitive fixtures at the start of the season.
“I can categorically state I genuinely have no idea how the trace of the drug entered my system,” said McCarey.
“However, there is no disputing the tests which were carried out and I have accepted full responsibility and I apologise.
“This has been a very difficult time for me and my family, and I intend to learn from this experience and improve myself both as a person and as a professional footballer.”
