Sean Dyche insists he's not aware of ANOTHER Everton points deduction

Everton manager Sean Dyche has insisted he is not aware of the club being at risk of any further potential breaches of financial regulations having already been deducted 10 points this season.

All top-flight clubs have to submit their accounts to the Premier League by December 31 – previously it was March – with the prospect of any breach of profit and sustainability regulations being punished in the same campaign.

Everton are already reeling from the unprecedented punishment by an independent commission – against which an appeal will be submitted on Friday – after breaching rules which say clubs can only overspend by £105million over three seasons. They were ruled to be £19.5m in excess of that.

Toffees sources have suggested there is nothing alarming regarding the latest set of accounts and Dyche said the club was just concentrating on one issue at a time.

‘I certainly haven’t been told any other than what has happened so far,’ he said.

‘We were stunned, I think football was stunned, by the outcome of the 10 points (deduction) so who knows what comes next?

‘The way it is sounding from the noise out there it is not just about us, there will be others looked at possibly over time. We will have to wait and see.

‘The recent facts of what happened I think we park and move forward but we won’t start worrying about ifs, buts and maybes.

‘The 10 points currently aren’t there so we have to see through the rest of it and crack on. We just have to be ready for what comes next the best we can.’

The points deduction dropped Everton to 19th in the table, five points from safety, but Dyche insists it has not actually made a difference to their primary objective.

‘It doesn’t change the facts of the matter that when I arrived here we had to win more games and that doesn’t change regardless of all the noise and all the ups and downs,’ he added.

‘I’ve spoken to the players about that and have agreed that is the focus, it always was and always will be.

‘We have got to win games and now that has been enhanced by the fact the 10 points have disappeared.’
