The Football League chief executive Shaun Harvey has ruled out the possibility of a winter break for League clubs.

The Premier League are understood to be considering the move but Harvey told the BBC that wouldn’t be the case for League sides.

“We have been involved in the discussions to start with. The EFL won’t observe a winter break,” said Harvey.

“We have a 46-game season. We need as many Saturday 3pm kick-offs as possible.

“The reality is if it is about giving the England internationals a break at the Premier League clubs, we can carry on without negatively impacting on that objective.”

The issue of a winter break has been a hot topic for some time among Football League clubs and even with this announcement it is likely the arguments for and against the break will run and run.
