Arsenal Charged by FA

Arsenal have been charged by the FA due to an alleged breachment of football agents regulations with regards to Calum Chambers transfer last summer.

Chambers joined Arsenal for a reported £16m from Southampton in the July of last year, and has made 36 appearances for the Gunners throughout a successful season, earning him a place in the under-21’s Euro Championship starting next Wednesday.

The former Southampton players agent, Alan Middleton, has also been charged under the same offence, allegedly breaching regulations over the 20 year old defenders transfer.

He has until 17 June to respond to the charge. Arsenal though, have until 26 June having requested more time.

Recent fines for similar breaching of the rules according to the BBC include:

“In May 2014, Sunderland were fined £100,000 and warned over their future conduct after admitting breaching the regulations.

Meanwhile, in February of this year, Championship club Brighton were fined £90,000 for the same offence.”
