Jay Rodriguiez granted extension for FA charge

West Brom's Jay Rodriguez has been granted a three-week extension to respond to a charge of allegedly racially abusing Gaetan Bong.

The initial deadline of February 16 has been extended by the Football Association to March 9 after a request by the Albion forward.

The FA statement says it was alleged Rodriguez 'used abusive and/or insulting words which included a reference to ethnic origin and/or color and/or race'.

Brighton's Cameroon international Bong claimed the incident took place during the clash between West Brom and the Seagulls at The Hawthorns last month.

Rodriguez has since tweeted that he '100 per cent' denies the 'false allegation', while West Brom have said they 'fully support' the player.
