Players will hold talks with Premier League executives next week before Project Restart plans can be signed off.

The Premier League are aiming to involve the Professional Footballers’ Association and the League Managers Association in talks before plans are given the go-ahead.

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder recently told BeIn Sports: “If any individual player took that decision and came to me and said, ‘It’s not for me,’ I’d respect that.”

In a bid to avoid those circumstances, the Premier League will consult players with plans, giving them the opportunity to raise any concerns.

The top-flight bosses say players and managers are “key to the process” of getting play back underway.

A crucial week lies ahead for the Premier League with hopes the government will relax lockdown restrictions on Sunday.

Shareholders will then meet to iron out more concrete plans for Project Restart on Monday before discussions are held with players in the days that follow.

The latest plans suggest a deal with Hong Kong-based company Prenetics for the provision of 40,000 home testing kits.

Though, clubs are yet to approve those plans.
