Stoke City striker Cameron Jerome has admitted breaching the FA's betting regulations.

The 26-year-old faces an Independent Regulatory Commission after being charged with betting on a competition in which his team plays.

It is believed Jerome, a former England Under-21 international, has not been charged with match-fixing or gambling on games he has played in.

An FA statement said: "The FA has charged Stoke City's Cameron Jerome with breaches of its rules in relation to a number of betting offences.

"Jerome has admitted the charges. A date for an Independent Regulatory Commission to hear the case will be set in due course."

A Stoke City statement said: "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's Andros Townsend was fined £18,000 in June and banned for four months, three of which were suspended, for breaching betting regulations.
