Reading accept points deduction

ChampionshipReading have agreed a six-point deduction with the Football League after breaching spending rules.

The Championship side will also see a further six points suspended, and will need to comply with an agreed business plan for the remainder of this season and next to avoid the additional penalty being triggered, reports the Daily Mail.

Six points would see the Royals drop from 16th to 19th but would leave them outside the second-tier's relegation spots.

Championship clubs are not permitted to make losses of more than £39million over three years but Chinese-owned Reading's operating losses for that period went beyond that figure.

Negotiations have been described as "lengthy but amicable".
