Christopher Steele was hired by the FA to investigate corruption at the highest level of world football’s governing body.
The real-life James Bond’s discoveries helped lead to the downfall of a number of crooked top Fifa officials.
And US intelligence agencies say the 52-year-old’s “excellent” work means his outrageous claims about Mr Trump may be true.
The ex-MI6 spy – who is now in hiding – compiled a 35-page dossier on the US President-elect, which was leaked earlier this week.
It included allegations Mr Trump hired prostitutes to commit a perverted sex act in a Moscow hotel room.
The former US Apprentice host called the claims “fake news”.
“We’ve just heard the news this morning and we are just a little concerned about it”
But FBI sources are said to trust Mr Steele’s judgement after he helped snare figures like Blatter.
Mr Steele founded Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd with his business partner Christopher Burrows in 2009 after leaving MI6.
Insiders said the FA employed him to probe Fifa during England’s failed bids to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cup finals.
The FBI reportedly used the findings to open an investigation into dodgy Fifa dealings.
Many senior officials were forced to resign after FBI raids.
Today, Mr Steele was reportedly “terrified for his safety” following the Trump dossier leak.
His father-in-law admitted he was “concerned” about the secret agent’s wellbeing after he vanished from his Surrey home.
David Hunt, whose daughter Laura was married to Mr Steele until she died in 2009, said: “We’ve just heard the news this morning and we are just a little concerned about it.”
Tonight, Mr Burrows refused to confirm or deny whether Orbis had produced the controversial Trump dossier.
