New foreign player rules to remain for the next four years
The Turkish Football Federation President Yıldırım Demirören has confirmed that the foreign player rulings which will come into effect next season, will remain for at least the next four years.
“The rule changes we put into place ten days ago were agreed upon by the players and clubs,” Demirören stated at a press conference.
“The rules which come into effect in the 20150-16 season will remain the same for the next four years.”
Demirören also stated that in three years time the TFF will meet to discuss if changes need to be made to the foreign player rules.
The current foreign player ruling states that only five non-Turkish players are permitted to play at any one time and three foreign players are allowed on the bench.
Under the new ruling 14 domestic and 14 foreign players will be permitted for each club.
