Derby had been cleared of breaching Financial Fair play rules but an Independent league arbitration panel ruled otherwise.

Leeds United fans have highlighted the confusion scale of punishment handed out by the English Football League after Derby County were handed a £100k fine.
The Rams are facing an ongoing legal battle with the EFL over a breach of Financial Fair Play regulations, which could still see them relegated to League One.
Derby survived the drop of the final day of the Championship season but could be handed a points deduction which would see them fall into the third tier and Wycombe Wanderers reinstated.
In a late-night statement, the EFL confirmed that an independent disciplinary commission has fined Derby County £100,000 and ordered them to resubmit three years of accounts, whilst two sets of interchangeable fixtures were released for the Rams and Wycombe.
Casting back to 2019, Leeds were fined £200k for their involvement in the ‘Spygate’ saga, which saw Marcelo Bielsa heavily criticised.
Though the EFL deemed Bielsa’s action immoral, the Leeds boss didn’t break any official rulings despite the fine, leaving Whites fans baffled at Derby receiving half the punishment despite the seriousness of their offence.
A statement on the EFL website said: “Tonight, the Disciplinary Commission has announced that the sanction to be imposed in respect of those breaches, is a financial penalty of £100,000 to be paid to the EFL and a reprimand for the club as to its future conduct regarding the preparation of its Annual Accounts.
“In addition, the club has also been ordered to file restated accounts for financial years ending 30 June 2016, 2017 and 2018 that meet the requirements of FRS102, together with updated Profit & Sustainability calculations if necessary.”
Derby County and Wycombe Wanderers are yet to comment on the announcement.
