Everton in dock over Lascalles

Everton have been fined £45,000 and warned as to their future conduct after making an unauthorised approach for Nottingham Forest's highly rated young defender Jamaal Lascelles in 2010, the Football Association has announced.

Everton have been sanctioned after breaching the FA's football agent regulations.

Andy Niedzwiecki, the agent who was representing Lascelles at the time, has been fined £10,000 and warned as to his conduct, and the player himself has been given a severe warning.

Lascelles, a ball-playing centre-back, is now 20 and, at the time of the approach, was under a scholarship agreement at Forest. He is still at the club, but this month has been linked with moves to Arsenal, Liverpool, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur.
