West Bromwich Albion striker Dwight Gayle has been banned for two matches later accepting a fee of”successful hands of a game official”.

The fee linked to Tuesday’s draw with Nottingham Forest, when Gayle won an 89th-minute penalty that was converted by Jay Rodriguez.

Gayle, 28, is to get a season-long loan from and it has scored 16 goals in 27 trips for the Baggies.

Championship matches will be missed by him against Aston Villa and Queens Park Rangers.

Gayle will probably be available February to return from his suspension against on Saturday.

Laws introducing the capability to retrospectively punish”clear actions of simulation” were introduced May 20 17.

A three-person Football Association inspection panel has to earn a unanimous decision before any charge is made against a new player.

The very first suspension for deception imposed by the Football Association had been in October 2017, when Carlisle forward Shaun Miller received a two-match ban.

’s Oumar Niasse became the first Premier League player to become similarly punished the following month.
