Football League finish hearing evidence in Watford FC and Laurence Bassini misconduct charge
The Football League have finished receiving evidence in relation to Watford FC and Laurence Bassini's misconduct charge, the Watford Observer understands.
The private hearing began on Monday and whilst we understand Bassini and the club have finished putting their side of events to the panel, a decision is unlikely to be made, or revealed, before next week at the earliest.
The Football League have refused to comment on the matter since the Watford Observer first revealed the charge in November and were unavailable for comment this morning.
Watford and Bassini were charged following alleged breaches of the Football League's regulations relating to two separate transactions between the Hornets and LNOC, a finance company.
One of the allegations relates to two installments following Danny Graham's sale to Swansea City and the other transaction is for two promissory notes worth £1.8m.
In November, solicitors acting for Bassini said the charge would be "defended vigorously" and Watford chief executive Scott Duxbury said he was "extremely confident of a successful outcome".
