Britain's National Crime Agency has charged a third footballer as part of a match-fixing investigation involving non-league players.

Moses Swaibu, who played in the sixth-tier Conference South for Bromley, was charged Friday with conspiracy to defraud as part of the probe into an alleged international illegal betting syndicate.

He was released on bail and will appear in court on Tuesday.

Michael Boateng and Hakeem Adelakun, who both play for Conference South team Whitehawk FC, were charged with conspiracy to defraud last month.

Swaibu joined Crystal Palace's academy at age 16, but didn't ever appear for the first team. He went on loan to several clubs before being released from his contract in May 2008. The defender played for Bromley and Lincoln City before a short two-month stint with Kettering Town. It was after that, in December 2011, that he rejoined Bromley. However, he wasn't offered a new contract after the 2012-13 season.
