According to the Daily Mail, which disclosed last month that Everton have reached an agreement with the Premier League in which they consult over signings and new contracts, to avoid being found in breach of the regulations – a revelation that angered many of their rivals.
Everton delayed publication of their 2020-21 accounts last week, which added to the ill-feeling, with many clubs baffled as to how they can have stayed within the spending limits after announcing losses of £120million.
The Merseyside club’s total losses over the last three years are a staggering £373million.
Under Premier League rules, clubs are only permitted to lose £105m over a three-year period, although investment in stadiums and infrastructure, women’s football and community projects are exempt from the calculations, and additional allowances have been made for the impact of Covid-19.
I think even most everton fans would agree that the only fair way to resolve this is a massive points deduction. Its surely in the best interest of the game’s integrity https://t.co/XvtI9c9Bmh

The unhappy clubs are considering their options, pending the outcome of their analysis, and have not ruled out suing Everton, the Daily Mail reports.
If things aren’t going good on the pitch their certainly not going much better off it, what do you think will be the final outcome for the Merseyside club?
