Premier League clubs agree to extend player contracts past June 30 as deadline set

Premier League clubs agree to extend player contracts past June 30 as deadline set

Richard Masters, the Premier League chief executive, added: “What we decided today is to ensure as far as possible that clubs complete the season with the same squad they had available prior to the suspension of the campaign.

“Players can extend their contracts beyond 30 June until the end of the season, but it must be agreed by both parties.”

The Premier League’s proposed restart in June is in doubt after managers asked for more time to prepare their players.

A provisional date of June 12 was put forward for Premier League games to return. However, it’s understood Premier League bosses have raised their concerns about the season returning.

Managers feel they need more time to prepare their players for the rest of the campaign.
