The English FA are determined for Nicolas Anelka to serve his 'quenelle' ban.
Anelka was sacked by West Bromwich Albion on the weekend.
And the FA will seek to ensure Anelka serves his 'quenelle' suspension wherever he goes next.
PA Sport says the FA will write to world governing body FIFA on Monday to ask that the five-match ban it imposed for the gesture is served by Anelka at whichever club he may choose to go to next.
