The Premier League will hold a meeting tomorrow with the remaining 14 clubs with those involved in the European Super League not included. 

Last night, Liverpool released a statement confirming their part as one of the founding members of the flagship European competition.

Notably, this is a breakaway from the traditional UEFA and FIFA competition with the Reds and other members leaving the European Club Association. 

AC Milan, Arsenal FC, Atlético de Madrid, Chelsea FC, FC Barcelona, FC Internazionale Milano, Juventus FC, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid CF and Tottenham Hotspur are classed as the founding members of the 'super' league.

This association represents over 250 elite clubs in Europe with Manchester United and Arsenal resigning from the organisation within the last 24 hours.

On Monday, Sky Sports broke the news that the remaining 14 clubs in the Premier League will hold a meeting to discuss the future of the top-flight in English football.

Chief reporter, Bryan Swanson, said: "The Premier League are to hold a meeting tomorrow morning involving 14 of their clubs.

"Significantly the meeting will not involve the six clubs that are a part of the proposed European breakaway.

"The meeting is going to discuss; the current situation and beyond that we don't know much else, it's a fluid situation. Clearly, we have seen the Premier League's opposition to these proposals. 

"It's fascinating to note that this meeting will only include the 14 clubs not involved. The Premier League always prides itself on the togetherness of the 20 clubs and always talks about the strength and unity. 

"But, they've clearly taken the decision that they need to gauge the views and the opinions of the 14 clubs not directly involved to see how that will affect and impact on the decision making that follows.

"What I am told is to have a little patience and let's see what comes out of the meeting tomorrow before we talk about what happens next."

Spanish and Italian leagues will also hold talks on Thursday and this afternoon, respectively, without clubs involved in the ESL.
