(Reuters) - Everton have lodged an appeal against a two-point deduction in relation to their breach of the Premier League's Profit & Sustainability Rules (PSR), the BBC said on Monday.

The club was charged in January for violations of the Premier League's PSR in their financial records for a period beginning in 2019-20 and ending in 2022-23.

Everton were then docked two points by the Premier League earlier this month -- their second points deduction this season -- which meant they dropped to 16th place in the standings.

The Merseyside club were also deducted 10 points in November after admitting to a breach of PSR for the assessment period ending with the 2021-22 season, although that was reduced to six on appeal in February.

Reuters has contacted Everton for comment.
