In-demand Burnley defender handed three-match ban

Burnley defender James Tarkowski will miss his side’s next three matches after he accepted a Football Association charge of violent conduct.

The highly-rated 25-year-old elbowed Brighton forward Glenn Murray in the 35th minute of their 0-0 draw in the Premier League on Saturday.

Tarkowski and his club tried to argue that the three-game suspension was excessive but this was rejected by an independent regulatory commission.

The centre-half will miss Burnley’s matches against Tottenham, Manchester United and Huddersfield.

Tarkowski’s form has supposedly made him a target for Arsenal and Manchester City.
