Ivan Toney affirms that he is supporting the FA in the wake of allegations of a betting inquiry.

Ivan Toney, a striker for Brentford, claimed he was helping the Football Association with their inquiry after it was revealed in national publications that he was under investigation for allegedly placing bets on previous games.

Toney sent a statement on Twitter on Saturday night in response to the FA's refusal to comment on the reports. He stated, "I am aware of an article about me in a major newspaper today. "I have helped the FA with their inquiries, but until this inquiry is through, I won't comment.

Toney continued: "I am a proud Englishman and it was always my childhood desire to play for my nation at the World Cup final. I'm hoping to be named in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the 2022 World Cup on Thursday."

Brentford acknowledged being aware of the claims in a brief statement posted on his official website. "We take note of the news surrounding the FA inquiry and Ivan Toney. The statement said that the club would not comment.

Players participating in the Premier League, Football League, National League, Women's Super League, and Women's Championship are prohibited from betting, directly or indirectly, on any match or football tournament that takes place anywhere in the world, The ban includes betting on any other football-related topic, such as the hiring of managers, the selection of a team, or the transfer of players, and disclosing inside knowledge to anybody who uses this information to bet remains forbidden, according to FA regulations.

As he waits to make his senior international debut, Toney was a member of Southgate's squad for the Nations League matches against Italy and Germany in September. However, he did not play in either match. The 26-year-old has added to his record of 12 goals from last season by scoring eight goals in the Premier League this year.

The team's captain was suspended for the 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest on Saturday after receiving his fifth caution of the year against Wolves the previous weekend. After beginning his career with local club Northampton and being loaned out to Barnsley, Shrewsbury, Scunthorpe, and Wigan at Newcastle, Toney signed Brentford from Peterborough for $5 million in 2020.
