VAR set to be used in Premier League next season

The technology was used at the World Cup in Russia

The competition has held off introducing video assistant referees (VAR), even as it has been used in other top leagues, including Spain, and by Federation Internationale de Football Association at the World Cup.

In April, Premier League clubs voted against the introduction of VAR for the 2018-19 season.

Following the successful implementation at the World Cup in Russian Federation, the most recent round of Premier League matches only highlighted the need for it to be introduced.

During a meeting attended by key members of all 20 Premier League clubs, officials were presented with an update on the non-live VAR trials taking place.

We will continue to try and sign the best of the best to maintain the Premier League as being the best league in the world, a global British brand that delivers significant revenue to this country.

The most important thing is that within the England group we value what he has done and what he has given", he said. "It was the highlight of my career, playing for Man United and I was there for so long".

The top leagues in Spain, Italy and Germany are already using VAR, which allows disputed incidents to be reviewed with the use of video replays, and the technology was used at the World Cup in Russian Federation this year.

Never very quick off the mark when it comes to moving the game along in the right direction, Thursday is expected to see the Premier League finally back the use of VAR.

Southampton striker Charlie Austin was left distraught after seeing a goal incorrectly disallowed for offside in his side's 1-1 draw with Watford. The officials cost us two points. They [the referees] clearly need help.

There is no doubt that the Premier League now houses some of the best players in the world.

It was also confirmed at the shareholder's meeting that next season's summer transfer window will close before the season begins, continuing the rule introduced this year.
