Everton suspend midfielder Andy van der Meyde for missing training on Sunday.

Everton's Dutch international Andy van der Meyde has been suspended by the Premier League leaders following a "breach of club discipline".

Midfielder Van der Meyde, 27, failed to appear at training on Sunday, a day after Everton's 2-1 win over Wigan.

"He has been suspended for a week and handed the maximum fine possible," said a statement on their website.

Boss David Moyes added: "Andy has had numerous warnings about this type of thing - we won't tolerate it any more."
