Everton admitted to offering inducements to seven young players, and their families, in a bid to encourage them to register with the club.

Premier League outfit Everton have been slapped with a two-year transfer ban that will prevent them from signing players aged between 10 and 18 who are registered at other top-flight sides.

The Telegraph and other major outlets in the United Kingdom have revealed that the Toffees have been handed a ban which means they are unable to sign academy players for the next two years.

The statement said: "Everton has worked alongside the Premier League over recent weeks to conduct a full and thorough investigation into allegations relating to our academy's operational methods in some areas of player recruitment".

Their head of academy recruitment, Martin Waldron, remains suspended following allegations he directed the illicit activity which prompted a Premier League inquiry. "The club will [as well as the fine and ban] also pay additional compensation payments to the former clubs of two academy players".

They even confessed to having provided false information to the Premier League when questions had been raised previously about their recruitment of schoolboys.

The case is said to have come about following an anonymous tip-off to the Premier League.

"Our CEO did hard work in this situation to solve everything".

As a club, Everton have notoriously been one of the more willing when it comes to giving youngsters a chance within the first-team set-up, but their hopes of bringing through future talent have been dealt a huge blow following the news of a transfer ban.
