It is quite possible that this could result in a longer ban for Tonali which is going to be a major cause of concern for Newcastle.
The Magpies splashed the cash on him in the summer signing him for a fee of around £52m.
And the Italian international was enjoying a great start to his Newcastle career until being found guilty.
Meanwhile, Magpies sporting director Dan Ashworth claimed that he did not know whether AC Milan were aware of the betting charges when they sold him.
Ashworth said (via BBC):
“It’s really difficult for me to get into what other clubs do or don’t know,”
“All we can do is look at our own internal investigation and internal process. It’s a really difficult question for me to answer – I just don’t know.
“It was a massive shock, a massive surprise. Dealing with it was new to all of us. It came from nowhere.”
