Phil King, 43, who went on to a Premiership career with Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday, denies laundering ill-gotten money through his Swindon pub.
Builders Trevor Bateman, 54, and David Merriman, 49, are accused of over-charging or providing shoddy work at 10 properties in Oxford and the surrounding area before cashing cheques at the Dolphin pub, run by the former defender.
The men deny all the charges.
