Leeds United side with 19 other Premier League clubs over transfer rule changes
All Premier League clubs including Leeds United have found unanimous support for the proposal to change the way foreign players are signed.
According to The Athletic, the Football Association are warming up to this idea which could lead to rise in funding for lower levels of the game.
After Brexit, players from abroad have to be eligible via a points-based system if they are under the age of 18 – limiting the signings top-flight clubs can make.
Leeds and all other Premier League sides will benefit if the rules change as they will be able to sign talented youngsters from overseas.
Due to the Brexit rules, players do not get their conditions fulfilled and end up going to a foreign league to get the required points.
Then, English clubs end up paying tens of millions for players they would’ve otherwise signed for cheap a few years ago.
The Premier League is the best league in the world so it needs to attract even the best youngsters in the world.
Real Madrid sign so many young South American players that go on to become world beaters and Premier League sides must have those chances as well.
Hopefully, the vote for these things is taken soon and we can move on and return to the older system that was in place.
