Stoke striker Cameron Jerome has admitted charges of breaching the Football Association's betting regulations.

The 26-year-old, a former Birmingham and England under-21 international player, has been charged with betting on a competition in which his team plays, which is contrary to FA regulations.

It is understood that there is no suggestion of any match-fixing allegations or that Jerome has gambled on games he has been involved 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."
