Stoke City striker Cameron Jerome has admitted to betting offences which breach the Football Association's betting regulations.
The 26-year-old has been charged with betting on a game which his team was playing which is against the Football Association's rules.
Whilst Jerome has admitted to these breaches there is said to be no mention of match-fixing or that the striker has bet on any games that he 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."
Whilst Stoke City have released a statement saying: "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 former England under-21 international has just returned from Stoke City's pre-season tour of America where he was in fine form, helping the team win 2-0 at Philadelphia Union last week.
The striker should be available this weekend when Stoke City host Italian outfit Genoa at the Britannia Stadium in their last pre-season game.
