LONDON -- Wigan Athletic has been fined 40,000 pounds ($67,500) for breaking Football Association rules on the use of agents.

The second-tier Championship club admitted it had broken FA rules by signing French striker Marc-Antoine Fortune in July with the involvement of agent Willie McKay.

The FA said Wednesday the charge related to a regulation which restricts clubs from employing an agent in connection with a signing if that agent has recently represented another club in dealings with the same player.

McKay "has been warned as to his future conduct and had his Overseas Agent Registration suspended for nine months" subject to appeal, the FA said in a statement.

Wigan said it is "awaiting the full findings" of the disciplinary commission.
