Derby County have been charged by the English Football League for a breach of spending rules and now face a possible points deduction.
The charge relates to losses in the three years up to June 2018, despite the £80m sale of their stadium to owner Mel Morris, which saw a pre-tax profit of £14.6m in their latest accounts.
Spending rules allow Championship clubs to lose £39m over a three-year period.
The club has been referred to an Independent Disciplinary Commission.
In March 2019, Birmingham City were deducted nine points by the EFL for a similar charge of breaching profitability and sustainability rules.
