The rules dictating loan additions have come under scrutiny this season after Watford brought in 11 players on temporary deals.

The Hornets are third in the npower Championship after fully utilising owner Gino Pozzo's stakes in Udinese and Granada to flood their squad.

Current rules do not place a limit on the number of loan signings a club can make but restrict a matchday squad to containing only five on-loan players.

However those rules do not encompass internationally-capped players so Watford are free to select Joel Ekstrand, Almen Abdi, Matej Vydra and Daniel Pudil outside that five player rule.

The AGM in the summer will address other issues but the most high-profile vote will relate to the loan system, with the aim of international players falling under the same restrictions and being included in the five on-loan individuals permitted in a matchday squad.

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
