FIFA Makes New Transfer Decisions That Will Shock Chelsea Arsenal Liverpool And others.

The days of Premier League clubs loaning out significant numbers of players is nearing the end after FIFA confirmed wholesale changes to the transfer system will be implemented in the summer.

From 1 July there will be a cap placed on the number of players over the age of 21 who can be sent out on loan by players, with the number allowed reducing to six by the summer of 2024.

There will be no limit imposed on the number of young players permitted to make temporary moves, although there will be caps placed on the length of deals with the shortest loan being the interval between two registration periods and the maximum of one year.

Clubs will not be allowed to make more than three loan deals with another club, while sub-loaning – effectively moved a player already on loan to a third club – is to be banned.

FIFA said that the new rules are being introduced for three reasons: developing young players, promoting competitive balance and preventing the hoarding of players.

Arsenal and Chelsea would both fall foul of the regulations if they were currently being enforced. The Gunners have nine players aged 22 or older turning out for other clubs, while Chelsea have 11 players over the age limit out on loan, including Emerson Palmieri, Michy Batshuayi and Danny Drinkwater.

The governing body said: “FIFA’s member associations will be granted a period of three years to implement rules for a loan system that is in line with the principles established at international level.”
