It comes as a betting investigation involving himself allegedly betting on AC Milan matches while he was at the club came to light over the international break.

If found guilty of breaching gambling regulations, the Italy star faces a long-term ban.

The Magpies are expecting a lengthy ban and his agent recently claimed that he suffers from an addiction.

UEFA are hoping the matter is resolved before Newcastle host Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Tonali was involved for Newcastle during the weekend’s victory over Crystal Palace.

The Italian star emerged as a second half substitute in the 4-0 win over the Eagles to a rapturous reception from fans at St James’ Park who ensured that the midfielder knew they were behind him.

Tonali was signed by Newcastle over the summer transfer window and has had a bright start to life on Tyneside.

The Magpies bought the midfielder for an upfront fee of £55million on a five-year contract.
