Premier League return: Government give green light to games coming back in June | Football | Sport

Clubs must agree extensions with their players before June 23.

The Premier League’s statement read: “At Monday’s Shareholders’ meeting, Premier League clubs unanimously agreed to be allowed to enter into short-term contract extensions with players whose deals are due to expire on 30 June of this year.

“As the UK Government indicated on Monday its willingness for live sport to return behind closed doors from 1 June, the Premier League is exploring paths to resuming the 2019/20 season after this date.

“Clubs were concerned over expiring player contracts and registration issues posed by the potential of the 2019/20 season extending beyond 30 June.

“So, it was agreed by all Shareholders that clubs and players can mutually agree to extend their contracts beyond 30 June until the end of the season.

“Clubs and players will now have until 23 June to agree extensions.”
