Nottingham Forest defender Harry Toffolo has been charged by the FA with 375 betting rule violations.

The Football Association has charged Nottingham Forest defender Harry Toffolo with breaking the league’s betting regulations.

Between 22 January 2014 and 18 March 2017, he allegedly violated FA rules prohibiting players from placing bets or passing on information that may be used for betting 375 times.

At the time, he was signed by Norwich City and had loan spells with Swindon, Rotherham, Peterborough, and Scunthorpe.

Toffolo has until July 19th to answer.

It comes after Brentford and England striker Ivan Toney was banned for eight months in May for violating the FA’s betting rules 232 times.

Toney, 27, was charged in November 2022 and was left out of Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad for the 2022 World Cup.

Toney’s ban, however, was lowered from 11 months to eight months due to a confirmed gambling addiction, and he will not be allowed to play again until January 17, 2024.

Toffolo, 27, joined Forest from Huddersfield Town last summer in a £10 million deal that also included Terriers midfielder Lewis O’Brien.

During the 2022-23 season, Toffolo made 19 Premier League matches for the newly promoted side.

Forest kick off their new season against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on August 12 (12:30 BST).
