Potential loans like the rumored loan of Ruben Neves from Al Hilal to Newcastle United are in jeopardy of being blocked.
Premier clubs will gather at the following stakeholders' meeting on Nov. 21 to vote on a proposal to ban loan moves for players into the Premier League between associated teams. If it were to pass, it would be a temporary solution for the January transfer window to protect the league's integrity and allow time for the stakeholders to find a long-term solution.
If adopted, the proposal would prevent the potential loan for Ruben Neves from Al Hilal to Newcastle United. Both teams are majority-owned by Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund.
Currently, there is no barrier stopping Premier League players from being sold in one window, and then the team they join later agreeing to loan them permanently to a side operating under the same ownership when the market re-opens unless it is deemed fair market value.
The vote will need at least 14 clubs (two-thirds majority) to adopt the proposal.
Newcastle and its fans will watch closely as they hope to sign Neves to replace Tonali, who is currently facing a 10-month suspension for violating gambling policies.
