HARRY Chapman will not be charged with allegedly breaking betting rules, the Football Association have confirmed.

City have welcomed the decision from the FA to withdraw the charge with immediate effect.

The decision follows a review of the case, in which it was alleged the 25-year-old breached FA Rule E8(1)(b) in 2017 while playing for Blackburn.

A City statement said: “The club would like to place on record its thanks to Ben Jones of Petherbridge Bassra and Simon McKay of counsel, who advised throughout and assisted in bringing the case to this conclusion.

“The FA now considers this case to be closed, and there will be no further comment from Harry Chapman or Bradford City AFC on the matter.”

The winger is currently recovering from a hamstring operation at the end of last season.

He is expected to come back to training in the next couple of weeks with an eye on a return to action in October.
