Fears are growing within the EFL that Championship clubs could breakaway with the top flight to form a Premier League 2
Championship clubs have reportedly held private discussions over breaking away from Leagues One and Two to form a radical new Premier League 2.

Last year, 15 Championship clubs signed a letter to the EFL board which threatened to cut ties owing to a conflict over the proposed TV contract and, the Daily Mail report the situation has reared its head once again.

It is claimed clubs in Leagues One and Two believe that curtailing the season, while the Championship look certain to align with the Premier League and complete their campaign, will only serve to hasten the desire for the second tier to split.

It could see Cardiff City and Swansea City play in a completely restructured division, with potentially more cash riches if it aligns with the financial clout of the top flight.

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has already voiced his desire to form a Premier League 2, a concept, the Mail say, which is supported by other leading clubs in the division.

There is a huge cloud of concern looming over Leagues One and Two at present, given the financial impact Covid-19 has had on the clubs lower down in the English football pyramid.

And with the Championship set to resume – a vote on curtailment is expected to take place next week but it is thought the majority want to continue – the Mail report clubs are privately discussing the prospect of a breakaway.

It is thought that should League One follow in the steps of League Two and announce the end to their season, the notion of the Championship going its own way would gather momentum.

However, a formal split would need to be endorsed and ratified by the FA and the Premier League.

At least six League One clubs have reportedly shown a desire for the season to continue, despite the princely sums which will need to be forked out for coronavirus testing kits. But the vote on whether the third tier should continue now seems more important given this latest revelation.

It looks as though League One's future hangs in the balance, with Gillingham manager Steve Evans having backed a resumption, but another club official telling the Mail the prospect of the season finishing is 'highly unlikely'.

In the Championship meanwhile, players conducted the first round of coronavirus testing on Thursday and will continue to do so on Friday, with club doctors to receive the results within 24 hours ahead of a scheduled return to training next week.
