FIFA president Gianni Infantino welcomes "any investigation" relating to a TV contract he signed while working for UEFA.

"If my determination to restore football's reputation was already very strong, it is now even stronger," he said in a statement after Swiss police Wednesday searched the headquarters in Nyon of European football body UEFA.

UEFA said it handed police "relevant documents" relating to a TV contract with an offshore marketing agency signed off by former UEFA general secretary Infantino, who at the time was UEFA's director of legal services.

The contract emerged in the Panama Papers leaked data.

"For the sake of transparency and clarity, it is essential that all elements of this dossier are disclosed, as UEFA has done," Infantino said. "It is in my interest and in the interest of football that everything should come to light."
