It is the second points deduction in the Premier League this season after Everton were docked 10 points -- reduced to six after appeal -- for PSR breaches and face further punishment for another breach of the same time period as Forest.

"The independent Commission determined the sanction following a two-day hearing this month, at which the club had the opportunity to detail a range of mitigating factors. The Commission found that the club had demonstrated 'exceptional cooperation' in its dealings with the Premier League throughout the process," the Cheap Premier League Soccer Jersey said in a statement.

"We were extremely dismayed by the tone and content of the Premier League's submissions before the Commission," it said.

"After months of engagement with the Premier League, and exceptional cooperation throughout, this was unexpected and has harmed the trust and confidence we had in the Premier League.
