Former Premier League striker Delroy Facey has been convicted of conspiring to bribe players in a match-fixing plot.

Facey, 35, who played for Bolton Wanderers, West Bromwich Albion and Hull City, had denied being part of the conspiracy.

He claimed the businessmen who were apparently offering him up to £15,000 for his part in the plot were “class clowns” who he decided to “humour” and did not take seriously.

But the jury Birmingham Crown Court convicted him today of conspiracy to bribe players.

Former non-league player Moses Swaibu was convicted of the same charge.

They will be sentenced later today.
