However, reports in the Daily Mail suggest that Hull City will not be so lucky, and are set to receive a small fine after breaching FFP rules. The news means the Tigers will following in the footsteps of Manchester City and Paris Saint Germain, who were both penalised last season.

Hull only played in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League, but are expected to receive a fine of around 200,000 euros (£145,529), similar to that handed out to Levski Sofia and three Turkish clubs during the previous campaign.

According to the source, Liverpool made a loss of £49.8m for the 2012-13 season, while they also made a deficit of £40.5m during the ten month period before that. However, they have been allowed to write off a large chunk of that as stadium expenditure.
