Southampton have pledged to assist the Football Association and the Premier League after releasing a statement saying assistant manager Eric Black is set to be named in the Daily Telegraph's ongoing investigations into football.
Saints pre-empted the newspapers' latest round of articles under the strapline 'Football For Sale' by saying they had requested details from the Telegraph - a request they said had been turned down.
The club's statement read: "Southampton Football Club has today been made aware by The Daily Telegraph that, as part of their ongoing investigation, the club's assistant first team manager Eric Black will feature as part of an article in tomorrow's paper.
"The club immediately requested to be sent, by The Daily Telegraph, the details of this article, but the newspaper declined to share any further information.
"We have today contacted The FA and The Premier League, and intend to work closely with both bodies on this matter when the facts become clear.
"Southampton Football Club is fully committed to investigating any situation that directly or indirectly relates to our club, employees or the wider community."
Black was appointed to Southampton's coaching staff during the summer as assistant to Claude Puel.
Sports Minister Tracey Crouch has called for the claims against Sam Allardyce to be "investigated fully" in the wake of his sacking as England manager.
Ms Crouch, along with Culture Secretary Karen Bradley, have already been in touch with the football authorities and officials are set to hold further talks with The FA, Premier League and Football League.
An investigation by The Daily Telegraph alleged Allardyce used his role to negotiate a deal worth £400,000 and offered advice about how to "get around" player transfers rules.
Ms Crouch said: "The integrity of sport is absolutely paramount and we have been clear that we expect the highest standards of governance and transparency from sports governing bodies, here in the UK and on the international stage.
"In this context, the recent allegations concerning English football are very concerning and we will be discussing the matter with the football authorities. All the evidence presented to them must be investigated fully and we stand ready to assist in any way we can."
Former England manager Steve McClaren has said The FA must "cut out" any wrongdoing from football and investigate the claims against Sam Allardyce.
McClaren's comments were made in the wake of an investigation by The Daily Telegraph which alleged ex-England manager Allardyce used his role to negotiate a deal worth £400,000 and offered advice about how to "get around" player transfers rules.
Sam Allardyce admitted he was "foolish" and his behaviour did not "live up to the high standards expected of an England manager," The FA's chairman has said.
Speaking after the meeting between the former England manager and The Football Association, at which it was decided that Allardyce would leave "by mutual agreement", Greg Clarke said Allardyce's comments were "inconsistent with the position as the senior manager of England".
Mr Clarke added that the "tipping point" in the decision for Allardyce to leave came during the meeting, and that The FA was not "embarrassed" by what had happened, but "sad".
Mr Clarke continued that the recent events were "not the plan we had, but we've got to make the new plan work," confirming that Gareth Southgate will take charge of the team for the immediate future.
Sam Allardyce has said he is "disappointed" to have left his role as England manager.
His statement reads:
"Further to recent events, The FA and I have mutually agreed to part company.
"It was a great honour for me to be appointed back in July and I am deeply disappointed at this outcome.
"This afternoon, I met with Greg Clarke and Martin Glenn and offered a sincere and wholehearted apology for my actions.
"Although it was made clear during the recorded conversations that any proposed arrangements would need The FA’s full approval, I recognise I made some comments which have caused embarrassment.
"As part of today’s meeting, I was asked to clarify what I said and the context in which the conversations took place. I have co-operated fully in this regard.
"I also regret my comments with regard to other individuals."
