Arsenal have come out with a statement following Monday’s £60,000 fine and warning handed to the club by the Football Association.
The Emirates outfit have been fined and warned about their future conduct by the FA after breaching football agents regulations over the transfer of Calum Chambers from Southampton for a reported fee of £16m in 2014.
A statement from Arsenal read:
“We acted in good faith throughout in this transfer and had no reason to believe that the player’s representative was not authorized to be involved in the transfer negotiations.
“The FA fully recognized that there was no intention to mislead on Arsenal’s part.
“We have improved our procedures to prevent this happening again.” The statement read on the FA website.
The FA described the incident as “fronting”, where an unauthorized and unlicensed agent is involved.
