Blackburn striker DJ Campbell and Oldham midfielder Cristian Montano were among six people arrested following new spot-fixing allegations in football.
The National Crime Agency is examining evidence provided by the Sun on Sunday, who filmed former Portsmouth defender Sam Sodje claiming he received £70,000 for getting himself sent off in a League One fixture last season.
Campbell, Montano and Sodje have been released on bail along with Sodje’s brothers Akpo – who plays for Tranmere – and Steve, who is a businessman.
The sixth man arrested, Tranmere defender Ian Goodison, remains in custody.
Campbell incurred a yellow card in the Championship clash against Ipswich last week – an incident which is believed to be at the centre of police enquiries.
