Barnsley's former assistant manager Tommy Wright has been charged with bribery offences, the City of London Police said.
The 52-year-old has been charged with two counts of accepting a bribe, the force said in a statement released on Friday.
Giuseppe Pagliara, 62, and Dax Price, 47, were both charged with two counts of paying and facilitating a bribe.
The pair will appear alongside Wright at Westminster Magistrates' Court on September 24.
In the statement, the force said: "In September 2016, the City of London Police were provided information by a national newspaper about various football agents who were thought to be facilitating bribes with individuals at football clubs, between May and September 2016.
"The information was reviewed by detectives and a criminal investigation was launched in November 2016.
"The three men were interviewed on a voluntary basis between December 2016 and April 2017."
