Kieran Trippier has been charged with allegedly breaching the FA’s betting rules.

The 29-year-old star of England's run to the 2018 World Cup semi-finals moved from Tottenham to Atletico in July 2019.

Trippier has been charged with alleged breaches of the FA's betting rules during that month and the right-back has released a statement saying that he will continue to fully co-operate.

"I have fully complied with the FA's investigation on a voluntary basis and will continue to do so," the Atletico Madrid full-back said. "I want to make it clear that while a professional footballer, I have at no stage placed any football related bets or received any financial benefit from others betting."

Trippier has until May 18 to respond to the charges.

Rule E8(1)(a) states that "a participant shall not bet or instruct, permit, cause or enable any person to bet on - (i) the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of, or occurrence in or in connection with, a football match or competition; or (ii) any other matter concerning or related to football anywhere in the world, including, for example and without limitation, the transfer of players, employment of managers, team selection or disciplinary matters."

Rule E8(1)(b) relates to "where a participant provides to any other person any information relating to football which the participant has obtained by virtue of his or her position."
