- Leicester, Leeds, Southampton and Burnley set for legal action
- Hearing for alleged FFP breaches set for 25 October
Everton face legal action from Leicester, Leeds, Southampton and Burnley that could run into tens of millions of pounds if they lose their case for an alleged breach of the Premier League’s financial fair play rules, which the Guardian understands will be heard on 25 October.
Everton were referred to an independent commission on 24 March in relation to their spending from the 2021-22 season and it was the trigger for Leicester, Leeds, Southampton, Burnley and Nottingham Forest to write to the league, demanding that the case be heard before the end of the season.
