Wolves goalkeeper Aaron McCarey, a former Irish U21 international, has failed an out of competition drugs test and has been suspended by the FA while they carry out an investigation. McCarey tested positive for a non-performance enhancing substance.
Wolves released a statement, which says McCarey denies taking any prohibited substances, via their website.
Aaron McCarey has failed an out of competition Football Association (FA) drug test for a non-performance enhancing substance.
As a result, the Wolves goalkeeper is now subject to an immediate FA suspension from all competitive forms of football.
The immediate suspension is a standard procedure whilst the FA’s investigation is concluded.
Aaron McCarey strenuously denies deliberately taking any banned substance.
The Club is extremely disappointed and concerned that one of its players has failed a drugs test.
Neither the player nor the Club will be making any further comment whilst the FA investigation is underway and not until the matter has been fully concluded.
McCarey, who hails from Monaghan, has made just one appearance for his club this season during a Capital One Cup tie against Northampton back in August. The 23-year-old moved from Monaghan United to Wolves in 2010.
