The Nottingham Forest defender Harry Toffolo has been charged by the Football Association for breaching its betting rules on 375 occasions. It is alleged Toffolo was in breach of FA rule E8 between January 2014 and March 2017, while contracted to Norwich. The 27-year-old was under contract at Norwich in that period but spent time on loan at Swindon, Rotherham, Peterborough and Scunthorpe.
Toffolo, who made 19 Premier League appearances last season after signing from Huddersfield, has until 19 July to respond to the charge.
Rule E8 prohibits players from betting on games, asking others to do so on their behalf or sharing privileged information for betting purposes. Newcastle’s Kieran Trippier, then with Atlético Madrid, was found guilty in December 2020 of violating it and was banned from all football-related activity for 10 weeks, also being fined £70,000.
In May, the England and Brentford striker Ivan Toney was banned for eight months after admitting to 232 breaches of the FA’s betting rules. Toney was initially charged in November 2022.
