REVEALED: Big Championship clubs facing FFP transfer bans (including Leeds, Blackburn)

A raft of big clubs are facing Football League Financial Fair Play punishments.

The Mail on Sunday says Leeds United are one of nine clubs expected to be sanctioned in the next few weeks with transfer bans or fines for over-spending in the Championship - with Leeds having posted losses of £22.9m last season.

Queens Park Rangers and Leicester are expected to be hit with massive fines, of around £30m and up to £20m respectively, under Football League financial fair play (FFP) rules, for racking up huge losses in the 2013-14 campaign as they won promotion.

Blackburn, Nottingham Forest, Bolton, Bournemouth, Birmingham and Middlesbrough as well as Leeds can expect bans of transfer activity in the January window and in some cases beyond if they do not address their financial issues.
