EPL stars probed over 'secret perks'

English Premier League football clubs and their star players are being investigated by the tax authorities over "secret perks", according to reports.

Investigators from Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs have interviewed finance directors at Britain's richest clubs to find out more about the benefits footballers receive, The Mail said.

Officials from an HMRC unit which usually deals with the tax affairs of people worth at least �20 million ($31 million, 24 million euros) had sent out a questionnaire to at least 24 leading clubs, the report said.
