Barclays Premier League chairmen are split over how to introduce cost controls to England's top flight despite broad support for some measures.
Although a majority of the 20 clubs who attended a shareholders' meeting on Thursday are supportive of bringing in financial controls, major differences of opinion remain over what form these should take.
The meeting at the Premier League's headquarters ended with no decision taken, and league's executives will now try to draw up some detailed proposals on a range of options ahead of a meeting in February. Any decision is likely to come into force from the start of next season.
