Brentford star Ivan Toney was handed an eight-month ban from all football activities back in May last year for breaching the FA’s betting rules.

The Englishman had an amazing campaign for the Bees last season. He scored 21 goals and provided five assists in all competitions and made a name for himself as one of the best strikers in the division.

Toney hasn’t kicked a ball over the last eight months, but his stock is still very high. Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move to sign him this month, while Chelsea are also said to be interested.

Irrespective of what happens with his future, today is a day for celebration for Toney – he has served his ban and is now permitted to be back in action for Brentford.

The Bees take on Nottingham Forest this Saturday, and Toney is eligible to play.

Taking to X to announce his return, the England striker posted a GIF of a man screaming one word: “Free!”
