Share/Save

The Premier League is negotiating for entry for 16 of its under 21 teams to the Johnstone's Paint Trophy next season.   League One and League Two clubs would receive contributions towards their youth development programmes in compensation.

The Football League is insisting that the teams should not be called 'B' teams.   Some Premier League clubs would like to have 'B' teams in the lower reaches of the Football League.
