A third footballer has been charged as part of an investigation into alleged match-fixing.

Moses Swaibu, 24, a former Conference South footballer from Croydon, south London, is accused of conspiracy to defraud and will appear at Cannock Magistrates' Court in Staffordshire on Tuesday.

He is the fifth person and third player to be charged in connection with the National Crime Agency probe into an alleged illegal betting syndicate.

The other two players who are facing charges are Michael Boateng and Hakeem Adelakun, both 22, who are footballers with Conference South team Whitehawk FC. They are also accused of conspiracy to defraud.

Chann Sankaran, a 33-year-old Singapore national, and Krishna Sanjey Ganeshan, a 43-year-old with dual UK and Singapore nationality, are charged with the same offence.

It is alleged that they were all involved with an international betting syndicate that tried to fix matches that members would gamble on.

The allegations emerged following an investigation by the Daily Telegraph during which undercover reporters discussed the possibility of influencing the scores and outcomes of lower-league English games for sums from £50,000.
