As US federal investigators claim to have linked Fifa secretary general Jérôme Valcke to $10bn (£6.6bn) allegedly paid to South Africa in 2010, the roster of senior figures linked to the murky world of international football corruption has once again increased.

Valcke, a top deputy of Fifa boss Sepp Blatter, was the official who prosecutors said transferred the money in 2008 from Fifa to accounts controlled by another football official, Jack Warner, the New York Times has claimed.

Warner is one of 14 current and former football officials and sports marketing figures indicted in a corruption and money laundering case brought by the US Attorney at the end of May. He is accused of accepting the bribe from South Africa. Valcke has denied any involvement in the deal.

Sky News reported Webb's arrest was the talk of the Cayman Islands, with locals shocked the man known as "Mr Jeff" had been implicated in bribery and racketeering.

Webb is also the head of the football regional governing body for North America, Central America and the Caribbean, known as Concacaf. In 2013 he was named as Sepp Blatter's anointed successor as Fifa president.
