The Scottish professional game board met recently after the 12 Scottish Premier League clubs agreed to a change in structure that would see two top divisions that split into three groups of eight clubs part way through the season.

The SFA, speaking on behalf of that board which includes members of the SPL and Scottish Football League, have revealed that talks have led to the creation of a working party that will aim to ensure developments are introduced efficiently.

"The Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League have agreed to set up a working party of nominated club representatives to expand on the extremely productive meeting held today by the Scottish FA's professional game board regarding league reconstruction," the statement read on Thursday.

"The PGB are greatly encouraged by the willingness on both sides to engage on the many areas of common ground and also in their commitment to implementing change.

"After the working party have reached consensus on a final set of proposals, they will be presented to all clubs across SPL and SFL for consideration."

It is estimated that the working party will meet within the next month to begin their discussions.
