The Telegraph recently published a recording in which Allardyce was negotiating to a £400,000 deal with men who he thought were middle Eastern agents in order to facilitate third-party ownership of players. Third-party ownership of players was abolished by the Football Association in 2008.

However, Allardyce was reportedly saying in the recording that he would try to ‘get around’ the third-party rules through channels at the FA.

Allardyce who was appointed in July has been summoned to a meeting with Greg FA Chairman, Clarke and chief executive Martin Glenn.

Clarke told The Times; “I want all the facts, to hear everything from everyone and make a judgement about what to do,”

“Natural justice requires us to get to the bottom of the issues before we make any decision. It is not appropriate to pre-judge the issue. With things like this you have to take a deep breath.”
