FA to investigate Chelsea
The on-going 'tapping-up' saga surrounding Leeds and Chelsea has moved to the next level after the FA have said that themselves, along with the Premier League, will be investigating the allegations.
A statement from Soho Square read: 'The FA and FA Premier League (FAPL) have agreed to conduct a joint inquiry into allegations made by Leeds United FC against Chelsea FC.
'The inquiry will look into the alleged conduct of Chelsea FC in relation to three Leeds United academy players last season.
'The inquiry will be carried out by both The FA and the FAPL as the allegations relate to FA and FAPL rules.'
'The FA is also giving separate consideration to a complaint by Chelsea against Leeds United Chairman Ken Bates regarding public comments made about the Chelsea directors and management.'
