Swansea defender Kyle Naughton has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association.

Swansea defender K yle Naughton will be banned for three games after accepting a Football Association charge of violent conduct.

Television pictures showed Naughton stamping on Watford striker Stefano Okaka during Swansea's 2-1 win at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

"The incident was not seen by the match officials but caught on video," read an FA statement.

Naughton had been given until 5pm to respond to the charge, but Swansea have told Press Association Sport that they will not appeal against the decision.

The 29-year-old full-back will miss Premier League games against his former club Tottenham and Newcastle, as well as Swansea's FA Cup third round trip to Wolves on Saturday.
