England, (AN24) – The management of the English Premier League (EPL) has said that “there is little point second guessing the implications until there is greater clarity”, following Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.

The new development, means English clubs will not be able to sign young players from within the EU until they are 18 and above.

Despite the arguments that the decision to leave the European Union could help the future of Britain’s national teams, the Premier League remain cautious about the impact of the vote.

“The Premier League is a hugely successful sporting competition that has strong domestic and global appeal. This will continue to be the case regardless of the referendum result.

“Given the uncertain nature of what the political and regulatory landscape might be following the ‘Leave’ vote, there is little point second guessing the implications until there is greater clarity.

“Clearly, we will continue to work with Government and other bodies whatever the outcome of any process.” A spokesman said.
