Everton and Nottingham Forest were deducted points last term for PSR breaches.

Promoted side Leicester are facing a similar penalty this coming season.

The proposal to up the limits after more than a decade is to be tabled by Villa at the Prem AGM in Harrogate but it is unclear how much support it will receive.

League chiefs also want to agree the principle of the planned PSR replacement based on Uefa-style “squad cost ratios”.

Portsmouth currently hold the record following their nine-point deduction for entering administration in 2010.

Sheffield United, meanwhile, will start the Championship season minus two points relating to the 2022-23 campaign.

Leicester’s predicament stems from breaches prior to their relegation in 2023 after nine seasons in the top flight.

The club avoided a points deduction last term after launching a legal case accusing the Premier League and EFL of “unlawfully conspiring” over the charges.
