The websites of Premier and Football League clubs will no longer carry advertising for ultra-high-interest lender Wonga. A short-term deal had been in place from the end of 2011 to the end of the last football season, for the advert to be featured on a website platform used by more than 80 sides. That deal has formally concluded.

This has been welcomed by fans who have been campaigning for the company to be banned from advertising to supporters. But their fight continues.
