The striker was suspended for Brentford’s most recent game against Nottingham Forest, however, he is available for selection in the Bees’ forthcoming League Cup match against Gillingham and their last Premier League game before the World Cup against Manchester City. The charges are thought to be limited to Toney’s time at one of his prior teams.

Brentford have acknowledged the tweet from Toney and the ongoing investigation. They said: “We note the story concerning Ivan Toney and the FA investigation. The club will not be commenting.”

 

There is no evidence that Toney, who formerly played for Newcastle United, engaged in any illegal behaviour or attempted to rig the outcome of any match. The FA has not filed any accusations against the player.

However, according to FA rules, all professional men and elite women football players risk a global ban on any football betting. The restrictions are so tight that they extend to players and managers, match officials, and club personnel, as well as wagering on transfers, manager employment, and team selection.

Last night Toney tweeted: “I have been assisting the Football Association with their inquiries and will not be making any comment until such investigation has reached its conclusion.  I am a proud Englishman and it has always been my dream to play for my country at a World Cup.”

Toney, 26, is anticipated to be included to England’s World Cup team for the tournament in Qatar, which begins in a week. Despite the continuing inquiry, he was selected for Three Lions service in subsequent Nations League matches but did not play. Toney, regarded as one of the top penalty takers in the world, was included to the Three Lions squad for Nations League matches against Germany and Italy in September.  Despite praising Toney’s presence at the training camp, England manager Southgate did not employ him and appeared to put doubt on his team spot.

Southgate said: “I understand the push as it is so close to the World Cup but there is life for Ivan Toney beyond the World Cup as well. He’s very much in the frame and what he does with his club between now and then is also really important.”

The fact that he was chosen by FA officials while being investigated by investigators from the same organization raises issues about the governing body’s handling of the situation. If Toney is proven to have broken FA regulations, his nomination would be in contrast with the FA’s commitment to betting transparency.
