Former Ipswich Town loanee Jake Livermore has been suspended by Hull City and the Football Association.
The struggling Barclays Premier League outfit revealed the news in a short statement, after reports concerning off-field allegations about Livermore emerged earlier in the day.
Livermore spent half of the 2010-11 season at Portman Road, while on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.
The statement read: “The Football Association has suspended Hull midfielder Jake Livermore.
“Following suspension by the FA the club has subsequently suspended Jake Livermore pending further investigations to be made by the FA and our own internal disciplinary procedures.
“The club is unable to make any further comment during this process.”
Livermore, 25, won an England cap in the friendly against Italy in 2012.
