No agreement between Premier League clubs over overseas TV money

Premier League clubs have rejected an initial proposal to end the equal distribution of overseas TV money, reports BBC Sport.

The six richest clubs - Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea - want their appeal reflected in their income.

And a plan - put by Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore - suggested 35% of global revenue should be divided based on league position.

But at a meeting on Wednesday, no vote was taken due to a lack of support.

"Clubs agreed to adjourn to allow further discussion," a statement read.

It had become clear during the meeting that the plan was significantly short of gaining the support of the 14 clubs needed for it to be passed."

The issue will be discussed again at the next meeting of club bosses in November.
