West Brom goalkeeper Russell Hoult suspended

West Bromwich Albion suspended goalkeeper Russell Hoult on Friday after a series of lurid newspaper articles about his private life.
The 34-year-old Hoult had been the club's first-choice goalkeeper since Tony Mowbray took over as manager of the League Championship team in October.
"Goalkeeper Russell Hoult has been suspended by West Bromwich Albion pending further inquiries by the club into newspaper articles this week," West Brom said in a statement.
Pascal Zuberbuhler is expected to replace Hoult in Sunday's FA Cup fourth-round match at Wolves.
Hoult was allegedly filmed on a mobile phone having sex with a woman, who was not his wife, with another man also present.
