Those rules are as follows: A player who has played at least 50 percent of international matches in the two years prior to the transfer will receive a work permit. Those who do not meet this requirement must obtain at least 24 points according to the new points system.
IREDVC is maximum 5 digits
There is already a tough hurdle to overcome: the Dutch Premier League (for both men and women) is classified into the so-called Band 2, with a maximum of 5 points to be earned. Band 1, Premier League, Bundesliga, Lit 1, La Liga and Serie A are included for comparison.
So it will not be easy to move from the Netherlands to England and earn a dream transfer as a young talented player. Also it means that there is a good chance that good players will stay in the Netherlands. KNVB says in a response that it is still studying the rules and does not want to say too much about it.
What if a contract expires?
Playing in the Championship, the second tier of men’s football in England, faces similar problems. Salary is good, which is why a switch is popular. Again, existing contracts are respected, but what if the contract expires? For contract extension or a new contract with another club, the player in question must suddenly meet the new requirements of the points system.
Take former PSV player Florian Josephjoon. This season he plays in Rotherham through a rental build. The club does not yet know what will happen next. “If we are satisfied with that and want to offer him a contract that would really be a problem, but to be honest, we haven’t really paid attention to it yet.”
