Stevens presents probe findings
Lord Stevens
Lord Stevens began his inquiry into corruption in March 2006
Lord Stevens has submitted the findings of his football corruption inquiry to the Premier League.

The results will be made public within a week after being reviewed by the Premier League board.

Headed by chairman Sir Dave Richards, the board will decide whether any disciplinary proceedings will be taken.

Only then will the identities of those alleged to have breached transfer rules and any charges against clubs, managers or agents be made public.

The Football Association may also be informed of the findings to take any action it feels is relevant.

Stevens gave an update of his inquiry to club chairmen on 2 October when he revealed his preliminary findings of 362 transfers between 1 January 2004 and 31 January 2006.

He found that 39 deals had to be further investigated and that they involved eight of the 29 clubs that had been part of the top-flight during the span of his inquiries.

The former commissioner of the Metropolitan Police was then given two more months to complete his investigation, which began in March and will have cost upwards of 600,000.

Richards is joined on the board by the Premier League's chief executive Richard Scudamore, general secretary Mike Foster and an external legal adviser.
