FA mulls firms for transfer audit

FA could be reluctant to pick Quest on account of close ties with the Premier League

An accountancy firm could be the preferred choice for the Football
Association, looking to hire a company to carry out an independent audit on a
number of its random deals.

Two weeks have passed after the transfer window opened for business but no
firm has yet been named, despite a shortlist which includes forensic
intelligence agency Quest, chaired by the former Metropolitan Police
Commissioner Lord Stevens of Kirkwhelpington.

However there are concerns over choosing Quest, despite their experience in
Premier League inquiries into transfers, the Telegraph reported. The FA
fears that Quest’s close links to the League could make them unsuitable for the
job.
