Finance guru: Liverpool to 'dominate the market' after 'elite' news from Premier League HQ

Liverpool will likely “dominate” the loan market under the terms of a proposed new revamp of the financial distribution model between the top flight and the EFL.

That is the view of finance expert Doctor Dan Plumley, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the latest news from behind the scenes at Premier League HQ.

The Times reported last Tuesday (26 July) that the Premier League and EFL are close to striking a so-called ‘new deal’ for the pyramid.

Parachute payments would be slashed under its terms, with the cash instead funnelled into a merit-based distribution system in the EFL.

The Premier League wants the EFL to commit to housing more loan talent in exchange, although how this would be imposed is not yet clear.

Liverpool currently have 11 rising stars out on loan, including seven with EFL sides.

Plumley explains how the proposed changes to the loan system could benefit the Merseysiders.

“The loan market at the moment is dominated by some of the biggest clubs in the Premier League,” the Sheffield Hallam University expert told Football Insider’s Adam Williams.

“If you then try and go down a road of using that system more, you run the risk of it being another thing that benefits the elite.

“The loan system can be very beneficial for clubs lower down in the leagues and I think we would like to retain that in some form.

“But you do run the risks of it becoming more in favour of the bigger clubs if we push this system.”
