The Premier League's 20 clubs have approved the £4.5billion three-year contract extension with Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime that will run through to 2025.

And as reported by Sportsmail, the Premier League have agreed to pay an extra £100million to lower division and grassroots clubs in order to secure Government backing for a new three-year domestic television deal. 

That decision came after being told that the price of avoiding a competitive tender would be increased funding for the rest of the sport.
