Everton’s 10-point deduction reduced following appeal

Everton’s 10-point deduction has been reduced to six following an appeal, the Premier League has announced.

It comes after the club breached the league’s profitability and sustainability rules (PSR).

An independent commission found they had exceeded permitted losses under the league’s PSR by £19.5m over an assessment period ending with the 2021-22 season.

Everton appealed the sanction on nine grounds, each of which related to the sanction rather than the fact of the breach, which the club admitted.

Two of those nine grounds were upheld, which has changed the original points deduction of 10 to six.
