Jamie Vardy has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association (FA) for his behavior after being sent-off against West Ham on Sunday.

The Leicester City striker remonstrated with referee Jonathan Moss after receiving a second yellow card for simulation in the 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium.

A further charge was imposed on the club by the FA for failing to control its players after Moss awarded a penalty to West Ham in the 83rd minute.

Both Vardy and the club have until 6 p.m. on Thursday to reply to the charges.
