After the EFL QPR climb down and the pitiful fine levied,i would be shocked if the league bares it teeth.

I would take great delight in being proved wrong though.

Basically, I think it’s saying that Birmingham owe so much cash that they should’ve accepted our fair offer, under FFP guidelines.

£7M over three years doesn't sound a whole lot, I bet there were far worse things going off in the Championship.

We should offer 8million now and see if they accept. Then let him stay there until end of season

Birmingham City’s decision to reject several bids for the striker Che Adams this week could lead to a second charge of committing an “aggravated breach” of the EFL’s profit and sustainability rules, which would trigger a second points deduction in as many seasons.

The Sky Bet Championship club are already facing being docked up to 15 points this season as a sanction for missing the EFL’s spending limits by £7 million over the three seasons from 2015 to 2018, with an independent disciplinary commission due to rule on the case this month. This has led to fears that the team, who are 12th in the table, 16 points off the bottom three, could be dragged into a relegation battle. Ironically, such concerns influenced their reasoning in rejecting offers from Burnley and Southampton for Adams, who has scored 15 league goals this season.

This may have been a serious miscalculation, however, as the club club need to raise considerable funds and/or make significant savings by the end of the season in order to comply with the EFL’s rules, with a failure to do so raising the prospect of a double punishment.

If it is proved that they rejected formal bids for Adams during the relevant accounting period — there have been reports of four offers of up to £12 million for the 22-year-old — the EFL may deem it to be an aggravated breach for deliberately ignoring the profit and sustainability rules, which could trigger an additional nine-point deduction, which would be applied next season.

Birmingham are contesting an aggravated breach charge for their signing last summer of the former Denmark Under-21 international Kristian Pedersen despite being under a transfer embargo.

Be interesting to know how the EFL would prove they rejected bids.

Presumably they’d have to somehow require Birmingham, us or Southampton to hand over any formal correspondence.

Yes and if we or any of the other clubs refuse to do so they can do very little about it.

It must be true. It was in the papers. ;)
