Forest were 17th with 25 points and are now set to fall to 18th on 21 points, one from safety, claim The Guardian.

They were charged in January for breaching the Premier League’s PSR rules in the 2022/23 campaign.

Under the Financial Fair Play regulations, clubs cannot lose more than £105million over three seasons.

This year is Forest’s second in the top-flight but they have not avoided punishment after being measured against both Prem and EFL regulations.

While in the Championship, they were not allowed to lose more than £61m-a-year.

Since their promotion via the 2022 play-off final, they have splashed the cash on 42 players.

They have broke their transfer record three times for Taiwo Awoniyi, Morgan Gibbs-White and Ibrahim Sangare.

In their case against the independent panel, Forest admitted the breach but have argued they only broke the rules for two months while filling their accounts between June 30 and September 1.

They had only received the first instalment of the £47.5m they are owed by Tottenham from the sale of Brennan Johnson in a deal completed on September 1.

Forest could’ve sold him to Brentford for £30m and complied with the regulations but held out for Spurs’ bigger bid.

Forest are likely to appeal and have 14 days to launch their case.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are the second team to be slapped by a deduction after Everton were docked six points.

They originally had ten taken from their total but it was reduced after a successful appeal.
