A report claims that the Premier League is to introduce a new law which will make it impossible for teams to join a breakaway division in the future.

The Premier League is set to rewrite its own rules to prevent any future threat of clubs leaving the division, according to a report.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur - the league's 'Big Six' - all announced last Sunday that they were forming a breakaway tournament.

However, global furore surrounding the European Super League led to its collapse just 48 hours later, with each English side then issuing grovelling apologies.

The Telegraph reports that the Premier League is working to ensure that nothing similar happens in the future, with chief executive Richard Masters eager to quickly push through some law changes.

It is claimed that rule L9 will be updated to make clear which competitions member clubs of the Premier League can play in.

The new law will supposedly make it impossible for any team to join a breakaway division, with expulsion a possibility should they threaten to do so.

Meanwhile, it has been claimed that the 14 Premier League clubs not involved in plans for the controversial European Super League want executives at the 'Big Six' to lose their jobs over the fiasco.
