An FA statement said the London club "failed to ensure its 'club whereabouts' information was accurate on three occasions within 12 months".

West Ham have until 27 February to respond.

"The breach relates to administrative oversights on the FA's whereabouts system," West Ham said in a statement.

"For example a player's address had been registered and the house number digits transposed, and the club will be responding to the FA in due course.

"We would like to make it clear that the breach is a club administrative matter and does not concern any of our players."
