English clubs handed major blow due to Brexit

Premier League spot up for grabs on Championship final day

Premier League clubs are now starting to feel the effects of Brexit.

According to reports, they have now been banned from signing under 18 players from foreign countries under the new regulations.

The new regulations for transfers have been approved by the FA and it will come into effect this January.

This could lead to the Premier League clubs missing out on elite young talents in the coming years and it will be interesting to see how the Premier League clubs cope with that.

One of the positives is that there will be more focus on developing young English talent.

It will also benefit the future of the England national team with more and more youngsters getting the exposure at top clubs in the coming years.

Under FIFA regulations and with the UK leaving the EU, Premier League clubs will now have to wait until the players are 18 or older in order to sign them.

Furthermore, the players coming to England will have to gain a governing body endorsement as well which will arrange the work permit for transfers from outside the EU.

The number of foreign under 21 players signed by a club will be limited as well and clubs can sign just 6 players per season from the beginning of the 2021 season.
