JAMIE VARDY IS likely to receive a lengthier ban from the Football Association after he swore at referee Jon Moss in Leicester City’s draw with West Ham.

The England international was sent off for diving in the second half of the 2-2 draw and will automatically miss Leicester’s clash with Swansea City next Saturday.

But after being given his second yellow card of the game, Vardy allegedly called Moss a “f*****g c**t” whilst angrily putting his finger in the face of the referee.

The Foxes striker has been charged with improper conduct by the FA this evening for his behaviour after the sending off.

Leicester have also been charged for failing to control their players when West Ham were awarded a penalty.

At the start of April, Diego Costa was made to serve an additional one-match ban after he was charged with improper conduct for his reaction to his red card in Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat to Everton in the FA Cup.

Vardy will miss this weekend’s meeting with Swansea City but could now be unavailable for the following fixture against Manchester United if found guilty by the three-man independent commission.

Both the player and the club have until Thursday to reply to the charges.
