Everton were sanctioned on November 17 for a breach of the Premier League’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR) and had 14 days to appeal

The club at the time  said they were “shocked and disappointed” by the ruling and vowed to appeal after being plunged into the relegation zone with immediate effect.

“Both the harshness and severity of the sanction imposed are neither a fair nor a reasonable reflection of the evidence submitted,” said the club.

According to the Premier League, the club admitted during a five-day hearing they were in breach of the rules.
