Kia Joorabchian, the agent who brought Carlos Tevez to West Ham, has claimed there are "a lot of players" in the Barclays Premier League whose third-party ownership is being deliberately concealed from the authorities, and called for a "proper, open inquiry; a proper, open discussion".

Tevez´s move to West Ham led to a season-long controversy which saw the London club fined £5.5million for failing to disclose the details of the Argentinian´s contract with Joorabchian´s company, MSI.

But Joorabchian said: "I know a lot players in the Premier League - and other leagues - which are here but are here in the same format as we have done but in a hidden scheme. They´re registered with a small club and they are loaned to another league. We want to be very, very open - we won´t hide behind another club."
