Diaby suspended due to possible anti-doping violation
Barnsley defender Bambo Diaby has been suspended by the club during an investigation over an anti-doping violation.
The 22-year-old Spaniard, who has been nearly an ever-present for the Reds this season, is understood to have taken a drugs test after the 3-2 loss at Blackburn Rovers on November 23.
A club statement read: "Barnsley Football Club have received notification from the FA that they are investigating a potential anti-doping violation by our player, Bambo Diaby. The player and club are cooperating and responding directly with the FA.
"The player is now subject to a playing suspension whilst this matter is under investigation. During these proceedings, no further comment will be made."
