One of the transfers under investigation as part of Lord Stevens' Quest inquiry is Martin Albrechtsen's #2.5 million move to West Bromwich Albion from FC Copenhagen in June 2004.

Stevens met with Premiership chairmen yesterday to discuss his findings from a lengthy and ongoing investigation into transfer deals and Albion are believed to have forwarded details of Albrechtsen's transfer to Stevens and his Quest team.

Jeremy Peace travelled to Denmark to meet FC Copenhagen's president Fleming Ostergaard on September 21 2004 for discussions over Albrechtsen's transfer.

He returned again on December 20 with the club's financial director, Mark Jenkins, to gain further information and there is no evidence to suggest that Albion's board of directors acted improperly at any time.

Albion believed FC Copenhagen had only been asking for #2 million for the defender and Peace compiled a report that was sent to the FA for official scrutiny.

The deal was brokered for Albion by Mark Curtis, who also represents former Albion manager Gary Megson, and he offered the following response to news that the transfer was under investigation. He said: "Everything was clear and above board. To suggest they paid more than FC Copenhagen asked for is a nonsense.

"I'm sure FC Copenhagen would confirm that."

Ostegaard, however, would not be drawn on the situation.

"We are a Stock Exchange listed company in Denmark so we never discuss transfer issues with the media," he said.

A spokesman for Albion confirmed they had sent documentation to FA officials at Soho Square. "Details of this transfer have been made available to the Quest inquiry. We are now awaiting the outcome before deciding whether to take further action," he added.

Megson, who has already had a meeting with Quest investigators, insisted he had nothing to hide.

"It was at my insistence that I met the Quest investigators immediately I heard suggestions that West Brom's deals were being looked at," he said.

"I've told them they can have full disclosure of my, and my wife's, bank accounts. We have no property abroad and no foreign bank accounts. If I can do that, then maybe others will too.

"Mark Curtis was working for West Brom at the club's behest, not mine. I was on holiday when Albrechtsen was signed."
