Premier League side Everton have appealed against the decision to dock them 10 Premier League points for financial rule breaches.
The Toffees were handed the punishment – the biggest in Premier League history – by an independent commission.
The club have lodged their appeal with the Premier League’s judicial panel, and an appeal board will now be appointed to hear the case.
The club admitted the breach but said they were “shocked and disappointed” at the severity of the punishment.
The appeal will be heard and concluded before the end of this season.
