A major suspect in soccer match-fixing has been arrested in Milan, believed to be a key associate of Singaporean kingpin Tan Seet Eng aka Dan Tan.

This week Interpol revealed about 680 matches were compromised, including those qualifying for the World Cup and European Championships, and for the Champions League.

Former Slovenian soccer player Admir Suljic, 31, bought a one-way ticket from Singapore to Milan to surrender himself to authories.
 
Tan Seet Eng remains in Singapore, assisting police with investigations but is not wanted there, although police in Italy have issued an arrest warrant for him.
 
Declan Hill spent several months undercover, investigating match fixing for his book The Fix: Soccer and Organised Crime.
 
He says "You ain't seen nothing yet".
