Halsey ready to call it a day

Premier League referee Mark Halsey is set to retire at the end of the season and is in discussions to release what could be an explosive autobiography on his time in the game, according to talkSPORT.

Halsey, who won his battle with cancer to resume his career as a top-flight official, has been involved in a number of high-profile incidents this season. It is believed that this intense level of scrutiny may have played a role in his decision.

The 51-year-old made a complaint to Greater Manchester police last September after he took charge of the Manchester United v Liverpool clash at Anfield. Halsey received abuse on Twitter following his decision to send off Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey for a dangerous challenge on Jonny Evans, and his awarding of a late penalty that enabled Robin van Persie to seal the victory for United.

Halsey also came under fire once again after he failed to send off Wigan's Callum McManaman following his knee-high challenge on Newcastle's Massadio Haidara in a Premier League fixture in March.

The official will take charge of the Premier League game between Fulham and Liverpool on Sunday.
