'Temporary ban' – Premier League rule change to have a major transfer impact on Newcastle, Brighton and Man City
and live on Freeview channel 276
Premier League clubs will vote on a temporary ban involving loan signings between teams with the same owners, Sussex World understands.
The ban would be in place as a temporary measure during the January transfer window if 14 of the 20 top-flight clubs approve the proposal at the next Premier League shareholders meeting on November 21.
It would prevent the possibility of Newcastle loaning reported target Ruben Neves from Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal as both sides are majority owned by the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF).
It is understood the temporary ban in January would be reviewed before a longer-term solution is sought.
