Last week the Danish FA revealed that it had received a letter from a group of football agents led by Mino Raiola threatening legal action if Denmark's governing body failed to prevent the implementation of FIFA's proposed cap on agent commissions.

The FA has confirmed to offthepitch.com that it also received a letter from the same group.
