  • A football- Two arrested after investigation into alleged corruption in sale of players to Premier League clubs

Back in April, we covered a story from Belgium revolving around accusations of money laundering and criminal association, with the transfer of Aleksandar Mitrovic from Anderlecht to Newcastle United said to be "at the heart" of the investigation.

It was widely reported in Belgian yesterday that the football agent Christophe Henrotay had been arrested in Monaco and that an associate had been arrested in Liege.

RTBF report Henrotay was apprehended in Monaco, where he is now being held by the local police.

Brussels prosecutors said that several raids took place in Monaco, Belgium and London on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"The facts involve notably money-laundering operations and private corruption in the context of football player transfers", the prosecutor's office said in a statement.

Henrotay is a high-profile agent and works with a number of the Belgian national team to broker transfer deals such as the one taking Tielemans from AS Monaco to Leicester City.

Henrotay is one of seven people involved in football who was arrested on Wednesday as the investigation reached a definitive point.

The earlier raids saw officers search the Anderlecht training centre as well as the Belgian FA headquarters and the offices of One Goal Management company which specialises in transfers.

The criminal probe adds to Anderlecht's woes on the pitch, where the 34-time Belgian champions are languishing a lowly 13th in the league with just a single win in their first six games this season.
