Accountants investigate Premier League transfers

Forensic accountants are leading investigationsĀ under the FA Premier League
bung inquiry, which was triggered by Luton manager Mike Newell’s claims that the
game was rife with under-the-table payments.

Headed by former Metropolitan Police commissioner Lord Stevens, the inquiry
will use accountants and investigators from his own firm Quest. Ten staff from
Quest will work on the investigation.

Several hundred Premier League transfers will be focused on what took place
since 2004, with the inquiry expected to last six months.
