The English Premier League is looking forward to a 12-point deduction from Everton. The Merseyside club Everton is under the investigation of Premier League for breach of FFP rules. A report from The Telegraph claims the league wants an ‘extremely severe’ punishment with a maximum of 12-points a possibility. An independent commission is currently assessing Everton’s situation. They are due to make a decision by the end of the year. The Merseyside club currently stands three points above the relegation zone.

Everton’s case involves a spend of £371.8million over a three-year period. Though, they had to spend £105m under league regulations. Despite the reports, Premier League has already issued a statement back in March about the breaches.

The proceedings before the commission will, in accordance with Premier League Rule W.82, be confidential and heard in private.

Under Premier League Rule W.82.2, the Commission’s final award will be published on the Premier League’s website. The League will be making no further comment until that time.”

However, Everton also released a statement later on saying,

“Everton Football Club is disappointed to hear of the Premier League’s decision to refer an allegation of a breach of Profit & Sustainability regulations to an independent commission for review.

“The club strongly contests the allegation of non-compliance and together with its independent team of experts is entirely confident that it remains compliant with all financial rules and regulations.

“Everton is preparing to robustly defend its position to the commission. The club has, over several years, provided information to the Premier League in an open and transparent manner and has consciously chosen to act with the utmost good faith at all times.

“The club will not be making any further comment at this time.”
