Two arrested as part of football money-laundering probe after London raids

Police have arrested two people as part of an investigation into corruption and money-laundering in football transfers.

Prosecutors said seven raids took place on Tuesday and Wednesday with at least one property in London.

Other raids took place in Monaco and Belgium as the investigation continues.

Two people have been arrested, including one agent and his assistant.

The agent was arrested in Monaco, with his arrested held in the Liege area of Belgium.

The probe is looking into suspected money-laundering by agents and saw the Belgian FA headquarters and Anderlecht’s offices searched this year.

The latest raids are linked to those searches in April but not related to the Belgian football corruption scandal of last year.

As many as 20 suspects have been charged over the so-called ‘footballgate’ scandal.
