Quest leads the Premier League “Bungs” enquiry uncovering extensive irregularities in football player transfer payments.
The Premier League instructed Quest to investigate irregular football player transfer payments. The inquiry involved the detailed scrutiny of 362 transfers focusing on various shortcomings in the way transfers were conducted. Quest worked with the Premier League, The Football Association, clubs, agents and other stakeholders.
The investigation involved interviews, forensic analysis of accounts and in-depth analysis of documentation obtained from organisations and individuals based in several different countries. The inquiry ultimately signed off all but 17 of the transfers and provided pertinent information to the authorities. The final report made extensive recommendations in relation to how processes and procedures should be improved to protect the industry from reputational damage in the future.
