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.
