England manager Allardyce probed by FA over newspaper sting

LONDON (AP) England manager Sam Allardyce's comments during a newspaper sting will be examined by his employers at the Football Association.

Allardyce, who has only been in charge for one World Cup qualifying match since succeeding Roy Hodgson as England manager, was filmed by Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper appearing to advise undercover reporters posing as businessmen on how to sidestep an outlawed player transfer practice. He was also filmed negotiating a 400,000-pound ($519,000) deal with a soccer agency and reportedly mocking Hodgson.

FA chairman Greg Clarke told The Times of London newspaper after the Telegraph story was published online late Monday that he wants "the facts in the morning and I will look into it."
