London - Newcastle United midfielder Dan Gosling was fined £30 000 on Wednesday after breaching Football Association rules on betting
An FA statement said: "Newcastle United's Dan Gosling has been fined £30 000, subject to any appeal, and warned as to his future conduct following an independent regulatory commission hearing.
"Gosling, who requested a personal hearing, admitted multiple breaches of FA Rule E8(b) for misconduct in relation to betting."
The wide-ranging rule states a player "shall not bet, either directly or indirectly" on matches involving themselves or their team as well as the competition they play in or have played in.
It is understood his offences do not relate to games involving Newcastle or Blackpool, where Gosling spent three months on loan earlier this season.
Since returning from Blackpool, Gosling has made three substitute appearances for Newcastle.
