"There should be 90 English players playing over 50 percent of minutes in the Premier League compared with 66 today -- of these 30 should be playing in the top six teams in the Premier League compared with the 18 today. This is still lower than the figures being achieved in Germany and Spain today but it would take English football back to a figure last achieved in 2000."
-- English FA
chairman Greg Dyke, who announced a target of increasing the number of English players in the Premier League from 32 percent to 45 percent by 2022. Proposals include the introduction
of B teams in a new "League Three," overhauling the work-permit system and increasing the required number of homegrown players in squads. (PA)
