Stoke winger Brek Shea in hot water at Barnsley

Stoke City winger Brek Shea is in hot water at Barnsley.

The USA international is under investigation after an alleged gesture to Barnsley fans on Saturday.

Shea, who is currently on loan at Barnsley, is believed to be accused of a two-fingered gesture to his own supporters after Saturday's 5-0 defeat at Huddersfield.

In a statement, Barnsley FC have said:

"Barnsley Football Club would like to apologise to its supporters for incidents further to the full-time whistle on Saturday at Huddersfield Town's John Smith's Stadium.

"As a Club, we do not condone any provocative actions from any of its employees and would like to further apologise for any offence caused.

"Stephen Dawson has apologised unreservedly for his actions and will be making a substantial donation to Barnsley Hospice as way of an apology.

"In relation to an alleged incident concerning Brek Shea: the matter is currently under investigation and a further statement will be made upon Brek's return from international duty."
