Mark Clattenburg is looking forward to "returning to his love of refereeing" after Chelsea formally expressed "regrets" over the way they handled their racism complaint against him.

Clattenburg is set to return to frontline refereeing for Wednesday's Barclays Premier League game between Southampton and Norwich, a month to the day since his world was turned upside down. The 37-year-old has attempted to draw a line under the allegation that rocked the game when a joint statement was issued following a meeting that saw him shake hands with Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck.

The statement included an admission from the European champions that they should have "given more consideration" before making public allegations Clattenburg racially abused midfielder John Obi Mikel during their explosive defeat to Manchester United on October 28.
