London: Referee Mark Clattenburg will return to action this weekend after being cleared of racially abusing Chelsea's John Obi Mikel, the Premier League announced on Friday.

The 37-year-old official will take charge of the match between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

He will also referee the game between Southampton and Norwich City on Wednesday next week.

On Friday, the Football Association said Clattenburg had "no case to answer" after an investigation into claims he insulted Mikel during a league match between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge last month.
