Leeds, Leicester & Burnley could sue 777Partners if Everton are found guilty of breaking spending rules
777 Partners are set to become owners of Toffees
Three of Everton’s competitors have informed the American investment company 777Partners that they plan to sue the club for £300 million if they discover it in violation of spending regulations in the coming weeks, potentially putting the proposed sale to 777 Partners at risk once again.
According to Daily Mail. Everton have received a letter from Burnley, Leeds, and Leicester asking them if they are aware of their plans to sue Everton pending the conclusion of a Premier League independent tribunal on October 25.
The Premier League was the intended recipient of the letter from the trio to 777, and it is believed that they responded by acknowledging receipt of the message.
The three clubs feel that the postponement may have aided Everton in avoiding promotion by avoiding an automatic point deduction, with Leeds and Leicester falling downward on the final day of the campaign as Sean Dyche’s team survived by two points. The three teams are upset that Everton’s allegations weren’t dealt with the previous season.
