Arsenal have been hit by a £60,000 fine along with a warning over their future conduct as they breached FA’s football agent rules and regulations.
The fine is for the transfer of Calum Chambers from Southampton, completed last year.
“Authorised agent Alan Middleton has also been warned as to his future conduct and sanctioned for breaching The FA’s Football Agent Regulations in relation to the same matter,” an FA statement read.
“Mr Middleton has been fined £30,000 and suspended from all agency/intermediary activity for a period of three months.
“This suspension shall be suspended in its entirety for 18 months from 23 October 2015 and will not take effect unless he commits an offence contrary to the agents regulations or The FA’s regulations on working with intermediaries during this time.
“Arsenal admitted part of the breach but denied another, which was found not proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission. The charges against Mr Middleton, which he denied, were found proven.”
