English player agents warned to open accounts

According to the BBC via Soccer Investor (3 Oct), England registered football agents who fail to co-operate with Lord Stevens' inquiry into corruption in the sport could be suspended or lose their licence. Lord Stevens also said his team may use Football Association rules to force agents to open accounts for inspection - after only 65 out of 150 co-operated. The FA confirmed it can request the information under "powers of inquiry". A spokesman said: "If we are asked to try to obtain information from agents, under our powers, we will do so."
