Overall, the Premier League is expected to raise the number of live games broadcast from 168 to 200, out of 380 fixtures.

Clubs are targeting an increase in the already astonishing £5.14billion deal which is currently in place between Sky Sports and BT Sports.

Speculation has seen both Amazon and Facebook linked with making huge bids.
There will also be eight slots available for Saturday night football from 2019-2022
