FA planning to reduce number of foreign players

FA planning to reduce number of foreign players”

If the clubs agree to the change, the FA would then agree to sign a government body endorsement for a work permit for every foreign player who gets a job with a Premier League club, something that the FA now primarily reserves for elite players.

Scudamore, who is stepping down after 19 years with the Premier League, is reportedly paid £2.5 million (A$4.5 million) a season.

The Premier League is now expected to begin looking for a new non-executive chairman.

The FA also see Brexit as a chance to boost the use of English players.

Premier League teams are now allowed 17 players in their 25-man first team squads, but a plan put forward by the Football Association would see that number reduced to 12 with 13 "homegrown" players, will be on the table at a meeting of the 20 clubs on Thursday.

The proposal is created to prevent all current European Union players having to go through the same process that non-EU players have to go through at the moment to get a work permit. Currently, 13 EPL teams have more than 12 overseas players on their rosters.

It is reported that both the government and the English Football League are aware of the plans, with the former being happy to sanction it if signed off.

Reports from across the water have suggested that the English FA is looking at a range of options related to the changing political climate and aligned with a desire to get more home-grown players involved at the highest level.

This would affect plenty of top flight and Championship clubs.

A five-person panel, led by the Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck, was tasked with recommending a preferred candidate to a meeting of Premier League clubs this month.

Premier League clubs are now obliged to have 17 homegrown players in their 25-man first-team squads.

Look at the starting lineups for Arsenal and Chelsea over the weekend: combined they had 1 English player who started, plus Arsenal had two more players who would count as homegrown talents in Hector Bellerin and Alex Iwobi.

The Times claim, meanwhile, that the FA is happy with the EFL's current rules, that mean clubs must have seven homegrown players (including at least one who has come through the academy) among their 18-man match-day squad.

He gets three if the transfer fee is in the top quarter of those paid in the previous season or if his wages compare to what the league's 30 highest earners took the previous season.
