The Football League's chief executive, Shaun Harvey, has said that he has not been contacted by the authorities over the ongoing match-fixing investigations.

The National Crime Agency has arrested six men, including at least three footballers, on suspicion of fixing match results in the lower leagues of English football.

"The threat of corruption is something the Football League and other football authorities treat with the utmost seriousness," The Guardian quotes Harvey as saying.

"The integrity of our matches and our competitions is the bedrock of the domestic game."

Former Premier League footballer Delroy Facey is reported to be one of those arrested by the NCA.
