Arsenal Fined and Warned by FA

Arsenal have been handed a £60,000 fine and warning by the FA over their future conduct in the transfer market for breaching the association’s Football Agent Regulations in their acquisition of Calum Chambers from Southampton in 2014.

The FA released a statement revealing the disciplinary measures, which also extend to “authorised agent” Alan Middleton for his involvement in the deal.

Middleton will receive a £30,000 fine along with a three-month suspension from agency activity that will be “suspended in its entirety for 18 months from 23 October 2015 and will not take effect unless he commits an offence contrary to the agents regulations or The FA’s regulations on working with intermediaries during this time.”

The statement explains that “Arsenal admitted part of the breach but denied another, which was found not proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission.”

According to BBC Sport’s Steve Canavan and Patrick Jennings, the disciplinary procedure was brought on by the involvement of “an unauthorised and unlicensed agent.”

Sky’s Anton Toloui expands:

Chambers himself was never suggested to have been involved in any wrongdoing, per Bleacher Report UK:

Canavan and Jennings also shared a statement from Arsenal on the matter, which read:

We acted in good faith throughout in this transfer and had no reason to believe that the player’s representative was not authorised to be involved in the transfer negotiations.

The FA fully recognised that there was no intention to mislead on Arsenal’s part.

It’s also important to note the case represents an isolated incident, so there’s little to suggest Arsenal are in danger of further punishment regarding such rule breaches in the future.

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am worried about
    switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into
    it? Any help would be really appreciated!
