Premier League club reportedly to receive a 12-point deduction this season
Reports indicate that a premier league club will reportedly receive a 12-point deduction, which would drop them into the relegation zone this season.
According to reports, Everton will be slammed with the 12-point deduction at the end of this week, dropping them into the relegation zone in the 2023/2024 club football season with just 2 points.
There has been no official confirmation from the Football Association, but Everton has been under investigation since the start of the 2022/2023 season for breaching financial fair play laws.
According to The Telegraph UK, The Premier League has suggested that Everton should face a severe penalty, with a maximum of 12 points deduction, which puts the club in a vulnerable position regarding relegation. Presently, Everton who is currently ranked 16th in the Premier League, with just three points above the relegation zone, would drop to the 20th position with just 2 points if the suggestion is being adopted. The club's financial losses over the past three years amount to £304 million, which is more than the permitted £105 million limit. As a result, the league has recommended a points deduction. Aside from a potential points deduction, Everton may face fines and/or a transfer embargo as recommended by the Premier League, which underscores the severity of the situation.
