Manchester City’s move for West Ham midfielder Lucas Paqueta is on hold because of concerns surrounding an FA and FIFA betting investigation.
The investigation is believed to centre around Paqueta getting booked in games, with the bets being placed in Brazil.
He was booked nine times for club and country last season.
Paqueta says he has not placed any bets himself and is said to be shocked by reports.
An £80m deal for Paqueta to join Man City has almost been agreed and could still happen if the issue is cleared up quickly.
