The Club has issued its claim against the EFL for acting unlawfully in relation to its alleged disciplinary charges.
We have sought to engage with the EFL in order to agree a sensible procedure to resolve the dispute arising from the fact that the Club relied upon representations from the EFL in relation to the sale transaction which is the subject of the charges.
The Club regrets that the EFL has so far refused to agree to the Club being permitted to make its claim, and refused to agree to a sensible procedure for dealing with the dispute.
The Club will continue to take such steps as it considers necessary to protect and enforce its rights against the EFL and to protect it from unlawful action by the EFL affecting the Club and the performance of its team.
The Club will not make any further comment at this stage.
