@FootballAgent49 had attracted over 38,000 followers since setting up the account and often had his transfer rumours retweeted by fans hundreds of times.
"I am writing to tell you that, no, I am not a 'Football Agent' or 'ITK.' I am infact an 18-year-old and I have been fooling all of you gullible idiots with my fake stories for the past 2 months," he admitted today.
"I started out when I was bored one evening and I never once thought that I could get 43k followers. I feel my twitter experience has been very successful with some of my 'Stories' even trending 5th in the world.
"I'm proud to say that I haven't had even one transfer scoop in my time yet people still say im more reliable than Sky Sports News and the BBC. Laughable."
He added: "Whilst I am here I can also point out there is no such thing as an ITK [in the know] or Agent on twitter, anyone with an IQ in double figures would realise this.
"I'm not sorry for wasting everybody's time, you should have realised I was a fake when I got all of my stories wrong and deleted countless tweets."
