The decision was made after a vote from all the twenty clubs in the English topflight league on Thursday.

Premier League clubs have agreed that the summer transfer window will again close before the start of the new season - although the date has yet to be confirmed.

Teams previously voted to exclude VAR from the Premier League for the current season.

"The League will now formally make a request to the International Football Association Board and (world body) FIFA to use VAR next season", the Premier League said in a statement.

The prospect was discussed at a shareholder's meeting and agreed "in principle" to follow the lead set in Serie A, the Bundesliga and La Liga and after its implementation at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Key learnings from VAR's use in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, and other leagues across the world, were discussed in detail.
