EFL told to get on with points deductions

At a meeting at St. George's Park on Thursday Championship clubs urged the EFL to get on with sorting out points deductions, given the approach of the end of the season. One reason is that the EFL are being cautious is that they have to ensure that they have followed proper processes as Derby County have threatened action in the courts.

Birmingham City are expected to get just a three point deduction for further breaches of FFP, but Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday could each get a 21 point deduction for selling and leasing back their stadiums to avoid FFP rules. Aston Villa are also in the frame, but are currently beyond the jurisdiction of the EFL.
