Brentford attacker Ivan Toney would be obstructed from any ploy to evade his eight-month football suspension by joining a team outside England.
Ivan Toney was banned from active football until January 2024 and hit with a £50,000 fine by an autonomous body after acknowledging that he breached betting rules in England.
The embargo which the FA has put in place against Toney only takes effect in England but it is believed that the English FA will try every possible means for Toney’s ban to extend across the world.
That would block the 27-year-old from moving to another club on loan or sold permanently to a club outside the country while his eight-month ban from English football continues to run its course.
The English FA is still waiting to see the independent panel’s written motives for the former Newcastle United forward’s suspension.
It is believed that if Ivan Toney signs for another club outside of England, the governing body of English football will inform FIFA about the ban.
They would also tell the football association of clubs who want to buy or sign him on loan that the Englishman was banned.
That would trigger the embargo to be in full swing across the world.
The FA is set to table Toney’s case to FIFA for a global ban just like in cases of two other English players – England International Kieran Trippier and former England International Daniel Sturridge who were suspended over similar wrongdoing.
Just Recently, FIFA received an application to further a ban slammed by the Italian Federation on ex-Tottenham Hotspur managing director Fabio Paratici.
That resulted in him resigning from Tottenham Hotspur to focus on the issue squarely.
The ban on Ivan Toney kicked into gear instantly, although he would be able to return to training on the 17th of September, four months prior to the end of the playing ban.
His breaches was done from the 25th of February 2017 and the 23rd of January 2021, at a time when he represented English clubs namely; Scunthorpe United, Wigan Athletic, Peterborough United and Brentford.
Ivan Toney has netted 20 goals in 33 Premier League games this campaign, assisting Brentford into 9th position on the log.
The former Northampton Town No 9 will be unavailable during Brentford’s clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
Toney would also miss the last game at home to potential Premier League winners Manchester City on the 28th of May.
His present deal with the Bees runs until at least 2025 and he has been linked with several Premier League teams including Chelsea and Arsenal before the announcement of his eight-month ban.
The last high profile case where a player was punished heavily was in 2017 when Joey Barton was banned for 18 months following a proper review on the right punishment for his wrongful act.
Everton winger Andros Townsend was also banned for four months for breaching betting rules.
