Arsenal will not face sanctions after being cleared by FIFA of any breach of club ownership rules concerning their relationship with Belgian outfit Beveren.A report on the BBC's Newsnight programme said Belgian police had uncovered an irregular £1million payment from Arsenal to Beveren.The Football Association, on request of world governing body FIFA, launched a probe into the report's findings but have found no evidence of any infringement of regulations. The FA's view has now been endorsed by FIFA.A FIFA statement read: 'In view of these findings, FIFA does not see any reason for further investigation or for any additional measures to be taken in this connection.'The FA received full co-operation from both clubs and kept FIFA continually informed of their progress before announcing the Londoners were in the clear.But Newsnight criticised the investigation, claiming the FA had not answered the relevant questions asked by FIFA.A statement from the producers of the programme read: 'Newsnight reported that Arsenal had failed to declare the truth about its relationship with Beveren, had made a secret payment of £1million and effectively taken control of the Belgian club which was used to move players from the Ivory Coast into Europe. Newsnight stands by that story.'In response to that report FIFA asked the English FA to investigate the connections between Arsenal, Beveren and the Ivory Coast.'Newsnight understands that no such investigation has been carried out but that FA cleared Arsenal on the grounds that Beveren does not play in English competitions against Arsenal and has therefore broken no FA rules.'Newsnight related how police uncovered an investment into Beveren of £1million from an anonymous donor which they subsequently concluded had been provided by Arsenal.The Gunners responded by declaring their partnership with Beveren was on a football basis only, although they did acknowledge granting them a loan to stabilise the club five years ago.Arsenal have an arrangement with Beveren to play friendly matches and loan players, with Ivory Coast defender Emmanuel Eboue arriving at Highbury on a permanent deal following a successful spell with the Belgian team.The Gunners continually refuted allegations of making irregular financial payments to Beveren and nobody was available for further comment following FIFA's announcement.
