Arsenal teenager Jack Jebb has been banned for four games for racially abusing an opponent during a Premier League Under-18 clash with Norwich in March.

The Sun reported that Norwich did not make a complaint on behalf of their unnamed player but the charge came after it was reported by the match officials.

Jebb, 18, denied the allegation but was found guilty by an independent FA disciplinary commission. He was suspended and fined £1,800.

Jebb, a former England Under-16 and Under-17 international, escaped the FA's new minimum five-match ban for any kind of discriminatory abuse because the Norwich match took place last season.
