Agent charged over bung claims by Newell

Agent Charles Collymore has been charged with touting a player to another club, after the Football Association decided to flex their muscles over claims by Luton manager Mike Newell.

The FA are continuing to investigate other claims by Newell relating to illegal payments but have begun disciplinary proceedings against Collymore over his actions with Luton's former striker Enoch Showunmi.

Collymore is alleged to have touted the Nigerian to Millwall without the knowledge or consent of Luton, although the London club are not accused to any wrongdoing.

He has also been charged with breaching agents' regulations by not having a formal contract with Showunmi or not having lodged it with the FA.

The charges having nothing to do with allegations about Collymore made by the BBC's Panorama programme, which are also being investigated by the FA.

An FA statement read: 'It is alleged Collymore touted the then Luton player Enoch Showunmi to Millwall without the knowledge or consent of Luton.

'It is also alleged he represented Showunmi without a written contract, or he did not lodge it with the FA.'

The FA have also announced disciplinary action against two other licensed agents.

Saif Rubie has had his agent's licence suspended for failing to provide information on his company Up `n' Up Management Limited, his professional indemnity insurance and the annual declaration form that licensed agents are required to submit. He was also fined £600.

Finally, north east-based agent Ian Elliott has been warned as to his future conduct after admitting a charge of failing to lodge with the FA his representation contract with Sunderland player Grant Leadbitter.

Two further charges were denied and found not proven by a disciplinary commission.
