Brentford striker Ivan Toney has landed a further charge of allegedly being in breach of the FA’s betting rules.
The 26-year-old was first charged with misconduct in November when he was alleged to have breached gambling rules 232 times between February 2017 and January 2021.
The new charge relates to an alleged additional 30 breaches of gambling rules during that time.
“Ivan Toney has been charged with misconduct in relation to alleged breaches of The FA’s Betting Rules,” an FA statement read.
“In addition to the previous charge, it is alleged that the Brentford FC forward breached FA Rule E8 a further 30 times between 14 March 2017 and 18 February 2019.
“Ivan Toney has until Wednesday 4 January 2023 to provide a response.”
Current FA rules forbid players in the top six divisions of English men’s football from betting on any football match anywhere in the world, as well as related markets such as transfers and manager changes. The rules extend to the players in the Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship.
Following the initial charges last month, Brentford released a statement saying: “The club has been in discussion with Ivan and his legal representatives about this matter and those conversations will continue privately.
“We will make no further comment until the matter has been completed.”
