​Premier League players discuss charitable donations

Captains of Premier League clubs have held talks over several days about possible moves to give money to charity during the coronavirus pandemic.

Led by Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson, captains have held a call to discuss wage deferrals or cuts, or a move to help fund a charitable cause.

They also discussed ongoing talks involving the Professional Footballers' Association, the players' union.

But it is understood players are in advanced talks to set up a collective fund which will offer a "seriously significant" amount, with the NHS the likely beneficiary.
