Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are one thing, but Hull City?

The Tigers are one of six new clubs joining Liverpool -- whose investigation has been extended -- as Premier League clubs being examined as possible rule breakers of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play act, designed to prevent overspending on transfers and wages.

Also new to the story are Sparta Prague, Lyon, Panathinaikos, Ruch Chorzow and Wolfsburg.

From the Associated Press:

UEFA says the clubs must provide updated accounts until February as part of monitoring to comply with Financial Fair Play rules.

UEFA says the initial seven - five-time European champion Liverpool, Monaco, Roma, Inter Milan, Besiktas, Sporting Lisbon and Krasnodar - have all attended personal hearings.

It’s not entirely shocking to see Hull on the scene, as they just qualified for Europe as FA Cup finalists and are under the microscope for the first time. Not to mention that Queens Park Rangers broke rules just getting into the Premier League.
