BREAKING: Everton could be hit with another points deduction amid claims of new FFP rule breach

Everton could be facing a further points deduction due to another alleged breach of the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.

Sean Dyche's side were handed a hefty 10-point penalty earlier this month due to the excessive loans used to help build their new Bramley-Moore Dock stadium.

The punishment has seen the Toffees drop inside the relegation zone, as the club are forced into a battle for Premier League survival.

However, Everton could face further deductions after it was confirmed that any new breach of the rules need to be dealt with by the end of May.

That's according to The Times, who claim that Everton must submit their accounts from the 2022/23 campaign before December 31 as opposed to March.

The report adds that "under new regulations brought in during the summer, straightforward breaches of financial rules will be fast-tracked so they are dealt with before the end of the season."

Therefore, there are concerns that if the same calculation system is used, Everton "could find themselves sailing close to the wind again".

In the aftermath of their initial points deduction, the club released a statement which read: "Everton Football Club is both shocked and disappointed by the ruling of the Premier League’s Commission.

"The Club believes that the Commission has imposed a wholly disproportionate and unjust sporting sanction. The Club has already communicated its intention to appeal the decision to the Premier League.

"The appeal process will now commence and the Club’s case will be heard by an Appeal Board appointed pursuant to the Premier League’s rules in due course."
