A number of Championship clubs want the EFL to fully punish the club for signing Kristian Pedersen under a soft transfer embargo, according to the Daily Telegraph‘s John Percy.

The journalist reports that a final decision will be made in October when punishments ranging from a points deduction, a fine or more transfer bans could be used.

Pedersen signed for £2.2m from Union Berlin in June, but the EFL only agreed to register the Danish fullback earlier this month when an agreement was reached with regards to limits on future transfer business.

Percy reports that the club feels the EFL are using us a test for future Financial Fair Play cases. Ever since reports of the embargo emerged in early July, there have been a lot of questions over how the league deal with breaches of FFP regulations.

The club directors are certainly not blameless in this whole affair, but the opaqueness of the whole process leaves many supporters feeling that we haven’t been treated that fairly. It looks as though we’ll have to wait at least a couple of months before we find out what our fate will be.

  • It can’t happen the session as already started you can only be deducted points before the session kicks off. Its on the (EFL WEBSITE)
    we have had our punishment and we are doing as ask other clubs only want us punished further because it will help them stay in front of us. We are not in administration so a points deduction is unlikely. Even if it was we would not get it in til next session.
