Tottenham winger Andros Townsend has been charged with allegedly breaching betting regulations by the Football Association.
The player enjoyed a successful loan spell at QPR this season and has apparently withdrawn himself from the England Under-21 squad for the European Championships.
The FA said in a statement: “The FA has announced it has charged Andros Townsend in relation to alleged breaches of its rules governing misconduct and betting.
“The Tottenham Hotspur player has been charged with breaches of Rule E8 (b) in relation to a number of betting offences.
“The player has until 3 June to respond to the charges.”
A separate statement from the FA said: “Townsend will receive the full support of the FA and Tottenham Hotspur FC in seeking rehabilitation whilst responding to the allegations.”
