As reported, the Premier League has ruled on banning loan activities between related parties (same owner) during the mid-season transfer period.
Accordingly, potential deals such as Ruben Neves returning from Al Hilal to the Premier League will be allowed. Notably, the ban needs 14 clubs to vote for approval. However, the result is 7/13. Or in other words, only 13 clubs agreed, the remaining 7 voted against.
At this time, Newcastle United wanted to borrow Neves. This is a plan for Choc to replace Sandro Tonali who was suspended for a long time for participating in illegal betting. Meanwhile, coach Mikel Arteta also favors Neves to strengthen Arsenal’s midfield.
However, it is unlikely that Neves will return to the Premier League in January 2024. Specifically, he asserted: “I won’t go anywhere.
I think it’s a rumor. Of course maybe it’s because of the owners of the clubs and because I also played in England.
There was interest from Newcastle before I went to Saudi Arabia. However, I am really happy here, my family is also very happy. So I’m having a great time.”
