Ivan Toney: Brentford striker aids FA investigation amid betting allegations

Brentford striker Ivan Toney has said he is helping the Football Association with its investigations amid allegations he bet on matches. The Daily Mail claims that Toney was investigated by the FA, which is still ongoing, for seven months, but has not been charged with any offence. The Courier also says the investigation relates to betting activity before he played for Brentford, and there is no suggestion he ever played against his own team. “I am aware of an article about me in a national newspaper today,” Toney wrote on Twitter Saturday. “I have been assisting the Football Association with their investigations and I will not comment until that investigation is completed. “I am a proud Englishman and it was always my childhood dream to play for my country in a World Cup final. Gareth Southgate selected Toney in his last England squad, but the striker is yet to make an appearance for the Three Lions. The 26-year-old is hoping to make England’s squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, announced on November 10. A statement from Brentford read: “We note the story regarding Ivan Toney and the FA investigation. The club will not comment. The FA isn’t commenting either. Toney started his career at Northampton, before moving to Newcastle in 2015. He played on loan at Barnsley, Shrewsbury, Scunthorpe and Wigan, before joining Peterborough in 2018. He then moved to Brentford in 2020, where he scored 55 goals in 103 Games. What are the football betting rules?
