Samir Nasri will be able to play for Sevilla while an investigation takes place into the intravenous drip treatment he is said to have received at a Los Angeles clinic.

Enrique Gomez Bastida, director of the Spanish Agency for the Protection of Health in Sport (AEPSAD), said until all the facts are known no sanction can be put in place.

According to the Drip Doctors clinic, Nasri received its ‘Immunity IV Drip’, which involves one litre of hydration and is designed to ‘"combat superbugs and common viruses".

However, World Anti-Doping Agency rules state that there is a 50 millilitre limit for active athletes.
