Turkish side Bursaspor will be allowed to compete in next season's Europa League competition following a Court of Arbitration for Sport decision to suspend a competition ban imposed by UEFA over unpaid transfer fees.

At the end of May, UEFA's appeals body banned the side from the 2012-13 competition over unpaid transfer fees dating back to 2007.

CAS have now ruled, though, that the punishment should be suspended for three years, with the club fined €250,000 for the offence.
