Ivan Toney has seemingly been removed from the latest squad update of FIFA 23.

Toney has been banned from all football-related activities for eight months after pleading guilty to over 200 betting charges.

Following confirmation of his ban, the FA have published their written reasons behind the ban in which they noted that the one-time England international did not appear in any of the games he placed a bet against his own team, including 11 while playing for Newcastle United.

A statement from the governing body on Friday said: “There were 13 bets on Mr Toney’s own team to lose in 7 different matches between 22 August 2017 and 3 March 2018. 

“Mr Toney did not play in any of those matches where he placed bets against his loan club as he was not in the match squad or against his parent club as he was on loan.”

The FA had initially wanted to ban the 27-year-old for 15 months but reduced the length after Toney was formally diagnosed with a gambling addiction and pleaded guilty to the charges.

Since the details of the charges have been revealed, Toney has responded cryptically twice, posting messages to both Twitter and Instagram but is yet to release a formal statement.

Now in the latest development it appears that EA Sports have removed from FIFA 23 with fans sharing screenshots of the Bees side, which no longer contains Toney.

Brentford have thrown their support behind the striker, saying that they would “be doing everything possible to provide support to Ivan and his family to deal with the issues raised in this case” and “look forward to welcoming Ivan back to training in September.”
