With the UK leaving the EU's orbit on December 31 following a standstill transition period, the league submitted the Governing Body Endorsement (GBE) proposal to the government last month and it has been approved by the Home Office.

«Post-Brexit, clubs will not be able to sign players freely from the EU,» the league said in a statement

«Players from EU countries who want to play in the Premier League or EFL will be required to gain a GBE, like all other overseas players without the right to work in the UK.»

«Players accumulating the requisite amount of points will earn a GBE automatically, while players just below the threshold may be considered for a GBE by an Exceptions Panel,» it added

However, under the new rules, clubs will no longer be allowed to sign overseas players until they turn 18

Premier League clubs will be allowed to sign a maximum of three Under-21 players in January and will be limited to six per season

The regulations will be reviewed in full before the close season transfer window which opens after the 2020 to 2021 season ends
