Everton: Sean Dyche says the team hopes the appeal is resolved “around the end of the month.”

Everton manager Sean Dyche has provided an update on the club’s appeal against the 10-point deduction imposed by the Premier League for breaching financial rules, stating that they hope to receive the outcome “around the end of the month.”

The club appealed the decision made in December, which resulted in an immediate

10-point deduction after being found to have breached financial rules for the period up to 2021-22.

While Everton admitted the initial breach, they expressed shock and disappointment at the severity of the punishment, which was the largest in Premier League history.

The appeal process with the Premier League’s judicial panel is expected to be concluded

before the end of the season. However, Everton’s second case regarding alleged breaches

of profit and sustainability rules for the 2022-23 accounts cannot proceed until the appeal against the initial deduction is resolved.

Dyche emphasized that the matter is in the hands of the authorities, and while it’s crucial

for Everton to have clarity on the situation, the legal process and timelines are uncertain.

The 10-point deduction dropped Everton from 14th to 19th in the Premier League table.

Currently, they sit 17th, just above the relegation zone on goal difference, but would be in

12th position without the deduction.

Despite the ongoing uncertainty, Dyche commended the players for their dedication

and professionalism, acknowledging that while the situation may be on their minds, they remain focused on

their performances on the pitch.

Everton is set to face Brighton on Saturday, and Dyche hopes for a swift resolution to the

appeal process to provide clarity for the team and the club as a whole.
