Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera is due to appear in court on Wednesday 10 June after earlier this season the Spaniard was named alongside other 41 people in match-fixing allegations in La Liga, reports in Spain claim.

The game under investigation took place on the final day of the 2010-11 season when Herrera's then-side Zaragoza beat Levante 2-1 to avoid relegation – while Deportivo La Coruña went down.

The Spanish prosecutor alleged that the Levante players were paid a total of €965,000 (£712,000) in cash to deliberately lose the game.

Herrera was allegedly among one of eleven players who received money into his bank account from the Zaragoza president and later withdrew it in cash to give back to the club chief, who then passed the money to Levante.

The Spaniard, however, denied all allegations in December in a statement released through his Facebook page and added his intention to co-operate with the authorities.

"In an on-going legal process involving Real Zaragoza [Spain], the club I was honoured to play from 12 until 22 years of age, there are 41 people cited as possible witnesses, of which I am one," he wrote.

"I have never had and will never have anything to do with manipulating match results. If I am ever called to testify in any judicial hearing, I'll be happy to attend, as my conscience is totally clear. I love football and I believe in fair play, both on and off the pitch."

The Manchester United star was expected to appear in court during the season but reportedly asked to postpone his declaration until the end of the campaign to focus on the Premier League.

And once he has complete an impressive debut season at Old Trafford Spanish newspaper AS claim he will appear on the Valencia court on Wednesday to explain his version to judge Isabel Rodriguez.

Swansea's Jefferson Montero and Arsenal winger Wellington Silva, who was on loan at Almeria last season, are also involve in the case as both played in the match for Levante.
