FIFA's ethics committee has recommended imposing a nine-year ban on the governing body's suspended secretary general Jerome Valcke.

The French administrator's original 90-day suspension from all football-related activities ends on Tuesday but the ethics committee has requested a 45-day extension.

A statement from the committee also recommended Valcke serve a nine-year ban and pay a fine of 100,000 Swiss francs (?67,400) for alleged "misuse of expenses and other infringements of FIFA's rules and regulations".
