Derby County could face a points deduction after the English Football League (EFL) won its appeal over the club's breach of Financial Fair Play rules.

After plenty of speculation in the last 24 hours, the governing body released a statement confirming the news.

The EFL say they want any sanctions against Derby to be determined as soon as possible.

It comes just days after Derby escaped relegation from the Championship with a last day draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

As a result, Wednesday were relegated along with Rotherham and Wycombe.

Yesterday, Wycombe's owner Rob Couhig, an American lawyer, said his club may potentially fight to get the Rams punished this season - something that would give a reprieve to the Chairboys.

Derby County sealed survival on the last day

He said: "I don’t know that the season is over yet. To me, we have accumulated all the points we can and now we will see what happens.

“People tell me that Derby County have issues out there. I don’t know whether we’re ready to go to lawyers yet. The message is: Watch this space."
