Dnipro handed one-year European ban by UEFA

Last season's Europa League runners-up Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk of Ukraine were handed a one-year European ban by UEFA on Thursday for breaching financial regulations.

Dnipro will sit out a season for any European tournament for which they may qualify in the next three years.

Romania's Targu Mures and Inter Baku of Azerbaijan were also handed similar sanctions. All three clubs had been ordered to clear up "late payments" by January 31.

Dnipro lost 3-2 to Sevilla in the Europa League final last year.
