The Football Association will announce details of a Premier League mid-season break in the next fortnight, revealed FA chief executive Martin Glenn.

According to Sky Sports News, a two-week break could be implemented in the 2019-20 season for the first time.

Talks have been made between the FA, Premier League and Football League regarding a winter break proposal.

The FA, who wants to emulate the top leagues in Germany, France, Italy and Spain, has agreed to schedule the fifth round of the FA Cup in midweek.

Glenn told councillors: β€œWe’re working closer and more collaboratively with the professional game than at any time in recent years.”

β€œVery soon this will pay dividends with the creation of a mid-season break, which is a much-needed improvement for our clubs and England teams.”
