Portsmouth fined for breaching Premier League rules
Portsmouth have been fined by the Premier League for a breach of rules and regulations.

Portsmouth have been fined by the Premier League after breaching a series of rules and regulations this season.

The fine has been reported as being in the region of £1m and is understood to relate to the club's late payment of wages to playing staff and late payment of outstanding transfer cash.

"Portsmouth have been fined for a series of breaches of our rules and regulations during the course of this season," a League spokesman confirmed.

Earlier this season, the Premier League used £7m of TV money due to be given to Pompey to pay off outstanding transfer fees to other clubs.

Portsmouth entered administration in February and a nine-point deduction was confirmed last week, leaving the club facing almost certain relegation.

The fine will be paid to the League out of the club's share of television money.
