Burnley striker Andre Gray has requested a personal hearing to answer his misconduct charge by the Football Association for homophobic comments he made on social media in 2012.
The 25-year-old initially had until August 31 to respond to the charge but was given an extension until September 5.
"Burnley striker Andre Gray has requested a personal hearing to answer Football Association charges relating to historical posts made on social media," Burnley said in a statement on their website.
Gray apologised immediately after his comments came to light, saying he was at a very different point in his life four years ago.
A date for the hearing has not yet been set.
