Six men have been arrested by offers from the National Crime Agency in the UK as part of an investigation into match-fixing in English football.
At least three players are reported to be among those arrested, though the BBC have claimed that none of the trio are linked to professional clubs.
The focus of the investigation is a suspected international illegal betting syndicate.
The English FA has said that it has been told of the arrests, being quoted as saying by theBBC: "We have worked closely with the authorities in relation to these allegations.
"The FA will make no further comment at this time due to ongoing investigations.
"The Gambling Commission said it had provided advice, intelligence and expertise in supporting the investigation and continues to liaise with the NCA and FA."
