Fourteen Premier League clubs were on Wednesday night considering their position amid an angry response to the news that the Big Six would have to pay a combined total of just £22m following their breakaway attempt.

Urgent talks were held ahead of Thursday's top flight AGM in Harrogate after the half dozen involved in the European Super League agreed a 'goodwill gesture' that will see each pay £3.66m to good causes within football.

Sources have disclosed that there was disbelief in some quarters at the perceived leniency of the agreement, which will also see any side attempting to repeat the trick docked 30 points and fined £25m.

Both Manchester clubs, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham struck a deal with the top flight and the FA following their contentious bid to form a new competition.

Sportsmail reported that a deal was close after 'fraught' talks and that a points deduction - despite the calls of some of the other 14 clubs - was off the table.

Instead, each will pay £3.66m. And in a further blow for some rivals whose owners wanted their sides to be compensated, the cash will go to grassroots, support for fans and community projects.

West Ham, Wolves and Everton are understood to have been amongst those pushing hardest for a more severe penalty and the details of the deal have not gone down well, however, what action they can take is unclear.

The centre position is dead in modern rugby league

  The centre position is dead in modern rugby league The centre position is dead in modern-day rugby league. How did this happen? Centre was a pin-up position, which has given us some of the game’s greatest and most entertaining players. It was a position that often sat next to halfback as the most glamorous and coveted. The value of the centre position has eroded significantly over the last 20 years. Try and think of some great centres of the ’80s and ’90s and the names flow pretty easily: franchise players such as Andrew Ettingshausen, Steve Rogers, Mick Cronin, Mal Meninga, Steve Renouf, Matt Gidley and Mark Gasnier all spring to mind.

The payments and benefits, revealed by The Mail on Sunday last week, were made by Wednesday in the period before Richards became the club 's chairman in March 1990.

The FA and Premier League decided against launching disciplinary proceedings in a bid to come to a rapid conclusion - a move that has also been questioned.

In a joint statement they confirmed the money 'will go towards the good of the game', which includes 'new investment in support for fans' and will help fund grassroots and community projects.

THE JOINT STATEMENT IN FULL

The six clubs involved in proposals to form a European Super League have today acknowledged once again that their actions were a mistake, and have reconfirmed their commitment to the Premier League and the future of the English game.

They have wholeheartedly apologised to their fans, fellow clubs, the Premier League and The FA.

As a gesture of goodwill, the clubs have collectively agreed to make a contribution of £22million, which will go towards the good of the game, including new investment in support for fans, grassroots football and community programmes.

Furthermore, the clubs have agreed to support rule changes so that any similar actions in the future would lead to a 30-point deduction.

Each of the six clubs, in that event, would also be subject to an additional £25m fine.

The Premier League and The FA have worked closely together throughout this process and this agreement brings both investigations into the matter to a conclusion.
