FC Twente will have to sell Nottingham Forest loanee Kyle Ebecilio before the end of the season to avoid a fine.

According to Voetbal ZoneEredivisie side FC Twente will have to sell Nottingham Forest loanee Kyle Ebecilio and Shadrach Eghan before the end of the season to avoid a £984k fine.

The report states that club’s former president Aldo Van der Laan agreed a contract with Malta-based Doyen Sports Investments for between 10 and 50 percent of the transfer rights to seven Twente players.

Five of the seven listed on the contract have already been sold, including Southampton midfielder Dusan Tadic, but Eghan and Ebecilio still remain contracted to the club.

The report also adds that Twente are likely to see some form of sanction, with some serious possibilities including relegation, a large points deduction or a transfer ban.

As the scandal became public knowledge, Ebecilio’s management agency told Dutch national newspaper Tubantia that is likely the reason Ebecilio was allowed to leave the club so readily during the summer transfer window.

‘’The documents show conclusively that FC Twente has to sell several players before a certain date, otherwise the club is fined €1.4 million,’’ a spokesmen from P4P management agency told Tubantia.

‘’In Kyle’s case, it means that he must be transferred before the summer. With this knowledge in mind, the pieces fall more and more into each other. It basically explains why Kyle was suddenly not wanted by FC Twente.’’

The 21-year-old has featured just five times since his loan move to the City Ground in August, spending the majority of his time at the club on the sideline due to injury.
