Fifa says Pieth, a Basel University professor, will outline his expert panel's work at a news conference next Wednesday.

Pieth has advised Fifa since President Sepp Blatter pledged wide-ranging reforms after a series of corruption scandals.

Pieth has previously helped the Swiss justice ministry draft laws to curb money laundering.

Fifa has said up to 18 members of what it now calls the Independent Governance Committee would be identified on December 17 in Tokyo.

Pieth's team will receive reports from four Fifa task forces before recommending reforms.
