Leicester, Burnley, and Leeds have all announced that they plan to sue Everton for a combined £300 million after the team was deemed to have violated the financial fair play regulations.
Senior officials from the three clubs reportedly held discussions this afternoon to reiterate their intention to file a lawsuit after the Premier League verified Everton’s guilty decision and the largest-ever 10-point deduction in the history of the league. This information was obtained by Mail Sport.
After Sean Dyche’s team narrowly avoided relegation on the last day of the season, the three irate parties are reportedly in agreement to carry out their earlier threats to sue Everton. These threats were made throughout the summer.
Leeds and Leicester were relegated to the Championship and Burnley have leant their support as they remain convinced that Everton’s spending breached financial rules the previous season when they were relegated.
