Five substitutions will be allowed in games when the Premier League restarts on June 17.

The 20 member clubs met on Thursday to discuss a range of measures building towards the planned return to action later this month.

The number of substitutes used during a match will increase from three to five players.

This is in line with the temporary law amendment made by the International Football Association Board last month.

Shareholders also approved for clubs to increase the maximum number of substitute players on the bench from seven to nine for the rest of the 2019/20 season.

Tottenham have confirmed they have received the only positive test for coronavirus from the fifth round of Premier League testing results.

A statement from Tottenham read: “We have been informed by the Premier League that we have received one positive test for COVID-19 following the latest round of testing at our Training Centre. Due to medical confidentiality, the individual’s name will not be disclosed.”
