Transfer deadline day: Premier League summer window to close early again

Video Assistant Referees are set to be used in the Premier League next season

"Premier League clubs have agreed in principle to introduce Video Assistant Referees (VAR) to the competition in the 2019/20 season", a statement on the league's website read.

He was also part of the Premier League-winning Manchester City team in the 2017-18 season.

The move was rubber-stamped at Thursday's shareholders' meeting at which all 20 Premier League clubs were represented.

It was used at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, but with mixed results.

The VAR system has been approved for use at next year's Asian Cup from the quarterfinal stage.

The decision prompted a furious post-match interview from striker Charlie Austin, who said: "We scored a perfectly good goal that was ruled out for offside".

Regardless, it was put to the vote for Premier League clubs to decide if they wanted to repeat the early closure for next season-and they did exactly that, with a 14-5 majority.

The prospect was discussed at a shareholder's meeting and agreed "in principle" to follow the lead set in Serie A, the Bundesliga and La Liga and after its implementation at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The VAR system uses a match official who monitors video footage of the game for incidents that the on-pitch referee and his assistant referees might have missed, such as determining goals, red cards, penalties and cases of mistaken identity.

But which young players in the Premier League are set to become the next big names in modern football?

EPL fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the huge change, with many condemning the decision and worrying for the future of the league.
