Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has accepted a two-week fine and dropped his appeal against the club, the Barclays Premier League champions have confirmed.
The Italy international's lawyers were due to present their case to a Premier League tribunal on Wednesday, who were due to hear his appeal against a club fine.
Press Association Sport understands City imposed a fine of two weeks' wages - a figure reported to be around £340,000 - on Balotelli last season for on-field indiscipline, causing his unrest.
