Premier League plan new laws targeting Man City and Newcastle

The Premier League are creating new laws targeting the likes of Manchester City and Newcastle United.

The Daily Mail says they are planning to bring in new rules to prevent clubs using their feeder and/or satellite teams to pay players and coaches in another attempt to curb the spending power of Manchester City and Newcastle.

The new regulations will form part of tightened restrictions on related-party sponsorship deals which are set to be agreed later this month in a direct response to the £305million Saudi Arabian-led takeover of Newcastle.

Newcastle's new owners have made it clear they are planning to follow the City Football Group model of establishing a global network of clubs, leading to fears among some top-flight rivals that such a set-up could be used to circumvent Financial Fair Play regulations.

Under the new regulations any payments to players or staff from related parties, including sponsorship deals, will have to be declared to the Premier League and will be taken into account for financial regulation calculations.
