Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg will find out next Monday whether he will miss any further games after breaching strict league protocols on Saturday.

Clattenburg has been dropped for next weekend’s Premier League fixtures and may face a further spell on the sidelines - but no decision has yet been made, according to sources at Sky Sports News HQ.

It is understood Clattenburg was involved in a private telephone conversation with Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock following their draw against West Brom at The Hawthorns.

Officials are only allowed to speak to managers after a game at the ground, and with the rest of their team of officials, or with the permission of the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL).

Clattenburg travelled to and from the game on his own, in a further breach of guidelines which require the referee and his assistants to travel together.
