Stoke City striker Cameron Jerome is facing a ban after admitting Football Association charges relating to breaches of the governing body’s betting rules.

The former Birmingham and Cardiff player is due to face an Independent Regulatory Commission and can expect to sit out several games.

The FA states the allegations against Jerome are "in relation to a number of betting offences", although there is no suggestion that they concern matches in which he was playing in.

Stoke said in a statement released on their official website on Monday that they will be supporting their player at his hearing, for which no date has yet been arranged.

The statement read: "Stoke City can confirm that Cameron Jerome accepts the FA charges made against him in relation to breaches of its betting rules.

"Cameron has admitted the charges and will in due course attend an Independent Regulatory Commission, at which he will be supported by the club.

"The club or the player will not be making any further comment at this time."

Tottenham midfielder Andros Townsend was banned for four months in June, with three of them suspended, after breaching FA betting rules.
