With the Daily Mail speculating this weekend that BSA will be grilled again by the Quest Commission over his involvement in the Blessing Kaku and Tal Ben Haim transfers, our new boss has been quick to come out and try to draw a line under the whole bungs affair. Speaking to our press he said:
I’m totally convinced that Quest is finished as far as I’m concerned. I hadn’t done anything. I wasn’t on the Panorama programme: I never appeared on it, I wasn’t caught on camera, was never caught making any allegations or doing anything wrong. I’ve done everything Quest have asked, if not more. They’ve viewed everything they needed to view and had opportunities to see all of my stuff that couldn’t be seen by the police without a court order. I volunteered all that, they cleared me so that’s it. It (the Quest probe) didn’t come into discussions when we were talking over the Newcastle job.’
