The Coronavirus outbreak has caused huge ramifications throughout the world and football and further talks took place between officials and the governing bodies up until late last night, with EFL chairman Rick Parry in contact with the Premier League and the FA.

Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion are of course desperate to finish the season with both clubs eyeing up promotion to the Premier League although if the decision is made to play behind closed doors then this could see their celebrations be muted.

The potential for the high-flying Championship clubs missing out on the vast broadcasting windfalls from Premier League promotion is also a major consideration for all concerned.
