Premier League clubs have voted against a proposal to fast-track a ban on loan moves for players moving into England’s top flight between associated clubs in the January transfer window.

Recall earlier this month, all 20 clubs were to vote on the proposed ban at the next shareholders’ meeting a temporary measure recommended to safeguard the integrity of the competition and provide the necessary time to find a more permanent solution.

while the majority of clubs (13) were in favour of the proposal it did not gain enough support to pass the required threshold and the rules will remain as they are ahead of the winter window.

There are currently no restrictions on Premier League players being sold in one transfer window and the club they join subsequently agreeing to a loan or permanent move back to the division with a team operating under the same ownership when the market reopens, as long as it is considered fair market value.
