By Football News



Stoke City striker Cameron Jerome has accepted a Football Association charge in relation to a breach of betting rules.

The 26-year-old faces disciplinary action over a number of gambling offences, although specific details have not been disclosed.

A short statement from Stoke confirmed the charge had been accepted and explained that the Premier League club will support Jerome at his disciplinary hearing.

It 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."

Jerome, who scored four goals in 30 appearances last season, has yet to be given a date when his hearing will be heard.
