"I'm even more focused now on restoring the faith the club have in me and will do all I can to make a big impact."

The statement added: "The club is also aware of a recent incident involving the player that is the subject of other investigations. This matter will be considered by the club, if required, when the appropriate authorities have determined this issue."
