The Premier League is happy in principle with a plan to allow for a two-week winter break beginning in 2020, Sky Sports News understands.

The proposals mean there will be no weekend without Premier League football - but the fixtures will be staggered so that there are five Premier League games on one weekend, and five on the next.

That would allow for all 20 Premier League teams to have a free weekend, and in effect a 13-day break between matches.
