The latest Premier League meeting on Monday proved to be eventful with Sky Sports revealing that one of the main topics of discussion was the feasibility of playing the remainder of the season at neutral venues.
The topic of player contracts was also discussed along with current loan deal and the decisions made on Monday will affect various players at Tottenham Hotspur.
Football.London revealed that all clubs voted on a plan to extend the contracts of players whose deals are ending on June 30, until the end of the season.
It was decided based on the vote that players who will become free agents on June 30 will be allowed to extend their deal until the end of the campaign provided both parties are in agreement.
Clubs and players have been given until June 23 to sort out the terms of their deal but it is revealed that any new agreement until the end of the season should be on the same terms as the previous deal and clubs cannot offer players a financial incentive to stay.
Spurs have two senior players in Jan Vertonghen and Michel Vorm who are out of contract next month and could potentially look to extend their stay in North London until the end of the season.
However, this would require the players to come to an agreement with their respective clubs and opens the door for players to decide to take the financial hit for a couple of months in order to play it safe and steer clear of any injuries ahead of a possible summer move.
It has also been reported that clubs will be allowed to extend their loan moves for players until the end of the season if they can afford it.
This will mean that the likes of Danny Rose, Kyle Walker-Peters, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Jack Clarke, and the several other young players Spurs have loaned out will likely return to the club only when the season is completed.

I do expect some players to reject the terms of the extension as they wouldn’t want to risk an injury ahead of potentially getting a lucrative new deal from a new club in the summer, particularly given how in-demand free agents are at the moment. However, I expect both Vertonghen and Vorm to stay until the end of the campaign.
