Footballer Cristian Montano, 21, was filmed by the Sun on Sunday claiming he had tried to get booked during a League One match for Oldham against Wolves in return for cash payment.

The attacker told the undercover reporter: "From minute one I was hacking people down. People running past me and I would go clip. I run against one player and barged him."

He also offers to take another yellow card in an upcoming league fixture.

Montano was on the books of Premier League club West Ham between 2010 and 2012 but did not make any league appearances.

He was loaned to Notts County, Swindon, Dagenham & Redbridge and Oxford United before being sold to Oldham in August 2012.
