The embargo on new deals, which followed the £300million takeover of Newcastle United, was due to end next week.

But clubs have voted to extend it until mid-December, according to the Daily Mail.

Newcastle voted against the ban, while Manchester City reportedly abstained.

United saw the ban as an attempt to limit the club’s spending power. Co-owner Amanda Staveley has spoken about doing new commercial deals “as soon as possible".
