The Whites were later fined £200,000 by the English Football League, after an investigation concluded that while they did not actually break any rules they failed to act in 'good faith'.

Derby have since caused a controversy of their own, after essentially selling their Pride Park stadium to themselves to circumvent the league's Profit & Sustainability regulations.
