Fans could also get a so-called golden share in clubs so they can block stadium moves or changes to crests and colours.

And Premier League clubs may have to pay a new tax on foreign players, with the cash helping lower league clubs.

The proposals are part of a fan-led review into footie.

It was chaired by former Sports Minister Tracey Crouch, who warned the game “is at a crossroads” and struggling with “deep-seated problems”.

It is understood the Government will today announce it supports a strong independent regulator.

Ministers are still considering the other proposals but The Sun understands they are keen on the golden share idea.

Downing Street ordered the review after six clubs — Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City, Man United and Spurs — tried and failed to split from the Premier League and set up their own with rich European clubs.
