THE findings of a nine-month inquiry into illegal payments in football transfers were set to be made public this afternoon.
Former Metropolitan Police commissioner Lord Stevens was detailing how many of 39 transfers under investigation he believes warrant disciplinary charges.
But Stevens is not expected to pinpoint individual cases of wrongdoing.
He was likely to suggest that transfers go through an independent body rather than the Football Association.
Such a move is likely to be resisted by the FA, whose chief executive Brian Barwick rejected suggestions their compliance unit does not have the resources to police transfers.
