The Premier League´s controversial ´39th step´ proposal faces its D-Day on Thursday, with the 20 clubs being offered several watered-down alternatives.

The club chairmen are holding their summer meeting in Leicester over the next two days, and plans for some form of international expansion are top of the agenda.

A number of different options - including the infamous ´international round´ - will be debated by the 20 clubs, and it looks likely that the original idea for each club to play a 39th league match in a foreign country will be abandoned in favour of a less controversial option.
