Manchester United has conducted forensic investigations following a cyber attack on the Premier League club's systems and is working with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) to assess the damage.

The club's Champions League game with Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir went ahead as planned on Tuesday, although some administrative issues needed to be changed around entry to Old Trafford for those in attendance.

According to PA Media, the attack has left the English Premier League club unable to fully restore its computer systems and, as of Thursday night, staff did not have access to their email accounts.

United announced last week that it had been targeted in a sophisticated operation by an organised group of cyber criminals that resulted in minor disruption to their IT services.

"The NCSC is aware of an incident affecting Manchester United Football Club and we are working with the organisation and partners to understand impact", a spokesman for the security agency told the British media.

As well as the ransom demand and £15m penalty hanging over them, United could also be fined up to £18m by the Information Commissioner's Office if any of their fans' data protection has been breached.

The latest development means games at Old Trafford will continue to take place behind closed doors until further notice.

"The club will not be commenting on speculation regarding who may have been responsible for this attack or the motives behind it".

Earlier this month, the NCSC's annual review showed the organisation defended the United Kingdom from more than 700 cyber attacks over the a year ago.
