In player contracts, Premier League and EFL clubs are attempting to provide new legal protections to protect themselves if the coronavirus pandemic worsens.

Sky Sports News has been told that new “Covid clauses” are included in certain loan agreements, meaning that they can be canceled and payments at least partly recovered if coronavirus leads to more interruptions in the football season.

These clauses have led to more complicated inter-club negotiations than ever before.

Many clubs also try to prove themselves in the future by including legal small print in new contracts, which would mean pay cuts for new and existing players, if games continue to be played behind closed doors beyond the end of this season.

On Wednesday, Aston Villa’s scheduled Premier League game against Tottenham is the fifth to be postponed due to Covid-19.

Despite the growing number of positive cases, the Premier League has not discussed the possibility of a circuit breaker for the season.

Last week, a season-high 40 positive coronavirus cases were reported.

Last week, the EFL reported 112 positive tests from its strategic league-wide program of testing.
