The Premier League are expected to vote in favour of using five substitutes from the start of next season, according to reports in the UK.
There have been several votes on the proposal over the past couple of years but it has been consistently rejected by teams lower down the league.
While the big clubs have been in favour of the move since it was temporarily introduced at the start of the global health crisis, others have been resistant to a permanent change.
Some believed that having five substitutes available would advantage the bigger clubs with bigger squads, but it appears that opinions on the issue have changed among the twenty top-flight teams in recent months.
If the reports are accurate, it means there could be enough support for the change to be implemented ahead of the 2022/23 campaign. Fans should, therefore, look out for an announcement in the coming days and weeks.
