Newcastle midfielder Jack Colback is being investigated over allegedly breaking betting rules, Press Association Sport understands.
Gambling rules introduced in 2014 forbid players and coaches from betting on any footballing activity worldwide.
Colback could now face Football Association charges, even though it is understood that the match in which the 26-year-old allegedly broke these rules has no bearing on Newcastle's fight against relegation from the Premier League.
It is FA policy not to comment on such cases until an individual is charged. But Press Association Sport understands the FA is looking into allegations that betting rules have been breached.
Colback has been a regular for Newcastle since joining from neighbours Sunderland in 2014, and played in the club's goalless draw at Aston Villa on Saturday.
Manchester City's Martin Demichelis accepted a charge that he broke betting rules earlier this season. The Argentina centre-back, 35, was accused of 12 breaches breaches of FA rule E8 concerning matches played between January 22 and 28 this year.

Andros Townsend would rather have points on the board than games in hand as the Premier League survival race approaches its climax.
Townsend's superb free-kick eased Newcastle out of the drop zone last weekend as a 1-0 win over Crystal Place, coupled with Sunderland's draw at Stoke and Norwich's defeat at Arsenal, provided another twist.
The Magpies are only a point better off than the Black Cats and two ahead of the Canaries having played a game more as they head for Aston Villa on Saturday, but the former Tottenham midfielder is happy to be in that position.
You'd rather have points on the board than playing catch-up with games in hand.
We have our points on the board. It's now down to Norwich and Sunderland to get their points in their game in hand.
We have done our job and hopefully we can go to Villa on Saturday and do it all again. We need to get three points then leave it to the others.
