West Ham United midfielder Ravel Morrison will face a Football Association disciplinary charge over comments he made on Twitter.
Morrison, who has made more headlines off the field in his short career in football, moved to Upton Park from Manchester United before the close of the January transfer window.
And he now faces a rap under FA Rule E3 for use of abusive and/or insulting words including a reference to a person's sexual orientation.
The 19-year-old has until 4pm on 17 February to respond to the FA charge.
He has yet to make his debut for the Hammers and manager Sam Allardyce is weighing up when the right time will be to give Morrison his opportunity.
