London: Seven players from Football League clubs in north-west England have been arrested in connection with alleged match-fixing in football matches.
The seven footballers are aged between 18 and 30, BBC reported citing the National Crime Agency (NCA) as saying. It added that six other men originally arrested in December on suspicion of involvement in match-fixing, then later bailed, have been re-arrested.
"The investigation began following receipt of material from the Sun on Sunday. It remains ongoing and we cannot provide further detail at this stage," the NCA said.
