The FA are preparing to investigate explosive allegations made against Fulham and their billionaire owner Shahid Khan by the club's former assistant director of football.

On Monday night, Sportsmail saw recent correspondence between an FA board member and American data analyst Craig Kline, reassuring him that his claims were 'being investigated'.

Kline worked at the club between 2014 and 2017, and alleged 'fraud, child endangerment and exploitation' in football, claiming to have witnessed racism during his time at Fulham.

He also took to Twitter when Khan's £600million bid for Wembley was at a crucial stage to claim that he had 'key evidence of systemic corruption relevant to the Wembley vote'.

Khan, who denies all the allegations, later withdrew his offer for Wembley, but insisted that Kline's claims had nothing to do with his decision.

At the time, the FA said they were 'reviewing' Kline's allegations, yet they appear to have now taken their efforts a significant step further.

'We are in the process of establishing an investigation into the issues raised by Craig Kline,' said an FA spokeswoman.
