FIFA's security chief has warned that not even the Premier League is immune to the dangers of match-fixing.

Football's world governing body will open a hotline for whistleblowers next month and have promised an amnesty to players or officials who come forward with evidence of fixing.

Chris Eaton, a former Interpol officer now working for FIFA, told CNN: "No league, not even the Champions League or English Premier League, is immune to the problem and that corruption affects every level of the game."
