Newcastle midfielder Dan Gosling has admitted an FA charge of misconduct in relation to betting rules.

The 24-year-old has requested a personal hearing – just like his manager Alan Pardew has regarding his clash with Hull’s David Meyler – and is said to have committed “multiple breaches” of the betting rules.

The rules state that any player cannot place a bet on any game involving their own club or any from the league they compete in. The FA has confirmed that the matches Gosling was found to have gambled on did not involve either Newcastle or Blackpool, where he has been on loan earlier this season.

Gosling isn’t the first to have fallen foul of these rules.

Andros Townsend was banned for a month and fined £18,000 last year, while Stoke City striker Cameron Jerome was fined £50,000 for a similar infringement.

A similar punishment is expected for the former Everton man, who has made three substitute appearances for Newcastle since returning from his temporary spell at Blackpool.
