Football Association general secretary Alex Horne has said goal-line technology could be used in the Premier League as early as next season.

Horne believes that ongoing tests into the accuracy of various goal-line systems could be completed, and given FIFA approval, in time for the start of the 2012-13 campaign.

"It's possible we could see (goal-line technology) in the Premier League as early as 2012-13," he told the BBC. "It's easy to make mistakes and we've all seen examples where the referee and assistant referee can't see if a ball has crossed the line or not. We need to support them in decision-making."
