A statement from the top-flight confirmed: “The Premier League and Fulham FC have entered into a sanction agreement following the club’s accepted breaches of the Premier League Rules in relation to player registrations.

“The club will face a six-month ban (suspended for one year) from registering any academy players currently or previously registered with another club and will pay a £75,000 fine.

“The suspended registrations ban commenced on 15 April 2024.”

It added: “As required by the Premier League Rules, the sanction agreement has been ratified by three members of the Independent Judicial Panel.”

The news is part of a sanction agreement with the Premier League over the settlement payments for Fabio Carvalho that were accepted to be in breach of the rules.

Liverpool confirmed the free transfer signing of Carvalho, 21, from Fulham back in 2022.

The Portuguese U21 international failed to make the breakthrough last term at Anfield.

He then spent the first half of this season on loan at RB Leipzig in Germany.

But he returned to England to join Hull City on loan in January.

He is now hoping to help them secure a spot in the play-offs on the Championship’s final day this Saturday.
