The Premier League have confirmed that the return of football will see teams permitted the use of five substitutions per game.

Top flight teams will now be able to select a total of nine subs on the bench as they gear up for the return to action in two weeks' time.

Talks between all 20 clubs continued via video link on Thursday with discussions of subs part of the day's agenda.

The Premier League have been studying events in the Bundesliga closely following the return of football in Germany last month where teams are now able to use five subs for the remainder of the season.
