Premier League clubs show combined profit for first time since 1998-99

The ESPN FC crew react to the comments of English FA Chairman Greg Dyke wanting to restrict foreign players in the Premier League.

Premier League clubs are back in the black overall for the first time in 15 years thanks to a rise in TV income and a show of restraint in raising player wages.

Figures released by analysts Deloitte show that the 20 clubs' annual figures combined show a pre-tax profit for the first time since 1998-99, to the tune of £190 million in 2013-14.

The ESPN FC crew react to the comments of English FA Chairman Greg Dyke wanting to restrict foreign players in the Premier League.

The Football Association will push English clubs to unearth their own Harry Kane next season by making it harder for foreign players to secure work permits from this summer.

FA chairman Greg Dyke reported back on the findings of the commission he set up in September 2013 to improve the fortunes of the England team.

GREG DYKE'S PROPOSALS

  • - A change in the definition of Homegrown player to lower qualifying age

  • - Increase % of English players from 35 to 40
  • - Tightening of work permit rules to ensure only top class players are accepted
