British media reported on Tuesday that Toney could be suspended for a significant period after he admitted to several of the 262 charges against him in December, but denied others.
Expressing his disappointment on Instagram, Toney said that he was "shocked and disappointed to see press speculation yesterday and today about the FA investigation process concerning me after I have been told by the FA that it is a confidential process until any decision has been made."
He also expressed concern about the "disturbing" news that the FA may ban him from football for six months before a hearing has even taken place. He went on to say that his lawyers would be requesting the FA to conduct a leak inquiry, citing a previous incident where stories appeared in the newspapers just before the selection of the England World Cup squad.
In November, the FA alleged that Toney had breached the betting rules 232 times between 2017 and 2021. He was charged with an additional 30 alleged breaches the following month. Toney has been in fine form this season, with 15 goals and four assists in 23 games in all competitions for Brentford.
The FA has not yet commented on Toney's request for an investigation into the alleged leak of confidential information.
