Manchester City have avoided a transfer ban despite admitting to breaching regulations relating to the international transfer and registration of Under 18 players.

The Premier League champions have instead been fined 370,000 Swiss francs (nearly Dh1.4 million) by Fifa after breaching article 19, among others, of the world governing body's regulations on the status and transfer of players.

A Fifa statement read: "The disciplinary committee took into account the fact that Manchester City FC accepted its responsibility and sanctioned the club with a fine of Swiss francs 370,000."
