The Telegraph’s investigation into football corruption shows no signs of letting up.

The newspaper’s shocking revelations regarding Sam Allardyce cost the England manager his job after just 67 days in charge, but he may not be the last to fall on his sword.

Three more names have now been revealed by the Telegraph’s investigations team, and the latest scandal will strike right at the heart of the Championship.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, the former Chelsea star now managing QPR, has been accused of illicit dealings with what he thought were Far East businessmen who turned out to be undercover reporters.

Hasselbaink appeared to agree to talk to investors for £55,000, before then allegedly admitting he would buy players from the same firm despite a conflict of interest.

The QPR boss denies allegations of wrongdoing.


Over at Barnsley, assistant manager Tommy Wright has been sacked after being accused of taking a £5000 bung for a player transfer.

And Leeds owner Massimo Cellino, who is no stranger to controversy, has also been filmed explaining how to get round FA rules.

It’s surely only a matter of time before more revelations target the Premier League, so this is a scandal that isn’t going away any time soon.
