American Kline has made numerous serious allegations about his former club Fulham, where he was assistant director of football.

He has submitted a dossier to the FA alleging “systemic corruption, child endangerment, exploitation and fraud” during his time at Fulham between 2014 and 2017.

He claimed the club’s wrongdoing was covered up via a conspiracy involving Glenn — with his attacks on the ex-Birds Eye boss still available to view on Twitter yesterday.

The FA chief denies the allegations but a spokesperson for the governing body confirmed last night that an external investigation into Kline’s claims had been sanctioned.

The FA decided to outsource the probe because of a potential conflict of interest involving Glenn and Ian Ryder, the FA’s former senior corruption investigator.

Ryder now works for Unique Sports Management, the football agency which handles stars including England skipper Harry Kane.

Kline’s allegations are also denied by Fulham owner Shahid Khan and chief executive Alistair Mackintosh.

Davison, with more than 30 years’ police experience, recently retired to set up MDA (Mark Davison Associates).

It is understood Kline plans to meet with Davison next week.
