Everton confirm Fellaini is free to face Wolves

Marouane Fellaini will be available to play for Everton against Wolves this weekend despite the Belgian football association's appeal to FIFA, the Merseyside club have been assured.

The Belgian authorities had sought to invoke the 'five-day' ruling after Fellaini, who played in his country's 2-0 win over Turkey on Saturday, missed Wednesday night's World Cup qualifier in Estonia following an operation to have a wisdom tooth removed.

Under FIFA rules the world governing body can ban a player from playing for his club for up to five days after an international fixture "in the event that the player, for whatsoever reason, did not wish to or was unable to comply with the call-up''.

However, FIFA have told the Toffees they had no case to answer.

"The Belgian FA did lodge an appeal with FIFA asking them to implement the five-day ruling,'' the club's head of PR Ian Ross told the club's official website. "However, FIFA have contacted the club this morning to say that we have no case to answer and that we did comply fully with all necessary legislation.

"We are delighted with the news as Marouane will be available for selection on Saturday.''
