Everton and Liverpool have voted in favour of new Premier League legislation following the takeover at Newcastle United, according to the Guardian.

The takeover led to scenes of jubilation from many fans at St James’ Park, but has been widely criticised among the rest of the football world.

The report also states that the 19 top flight clubs wanted a special meeting with the Premier League to know why the takeover at Newcastle had been signed off.

It has been claimed that almost all Premier League sides, including Everton and Liverpool, voted in favour of bringing in legislation designed to stop clubs from striking lucrative sponsorship arrangements.

Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), whose chairman is Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of the Middle Eastern state, purchased the club earlier this month as the largest stakeholder in a £300m deal.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp spoke last week about his reservations over the takeover, and it appears they may be shared by other clubs in the Premier League.

According to the Athletic, City "abstained" from the vote while Newcastle "believe that the rule is anti-competitive, backed up by their own legal advice, and could be unlawful".
