Stoke chairman Peter Coates: Football has never been cleaner

Stoke City chairman Peter Coates insists football at the top is 'clean'.

The Potters chief, however, would back a limit on agent fees in the wake of the recent financial malpractice claims.

Coates told BBC: “We can do things better but I don't accept the game is corrupt.

“The game has never been cleaner and I have been in this game a long time.

"I think transparency is very important. I would have everything about every transfer deal recorded and the FA and the Premier League or the Football League have a copy."
