fe-adEarlier this morning FC Copenhagen CEO Anders Hørsholt confirmed to Danish newspaper BT that talks had begun with several other clubs around the formation of a league which would include top clubs from nations such as Netherlands, Belgium, Scotland, Sweden and Norway. Dutch trio Ajax, Feyenoord and PSV were then named as three clubs who were involved in the talks along with Rangers, Anderlecht, Club Brugge and more.

A spokesman for Feyenoord confirmed the news to AD, stating “We sit at the table. That says nothing about the feasibility of our participation. We want to know what is happening and see if it might be something for Feyenoord.”

The reason for the possible formation of the league is due to the new proposed change of rules to the Champions League which will see England, Spain, Italy and Germany guaranteed four Champions League slots each. That change would have a drastic effect on clubs from the smaller nations and they are meeting to discuss other possible options.
