Clubs have started announcing their 25-man squads under the new Premier League rules. The rules in a nutshell: By 5pm (BST) of September 1 all teams have to announce a squad list of a maximum 25 players. - Eight of the 25 players have to be "home-grown", which means they must have been registered with the FA or Welsh FA of three seasons (or 36 months) before their 21st birthday. The term "home-grown" does not reference nationality, just how many years spent in England before turning 21. - Clubs not not HAVE to name a list of 25 players if they don't have that many contracted individuals. They will be allowed to take on free agents outside the transfer window to make up their numbers. - Clubs do not HAVE to name eight home grown players, but not doing so would mean having to play with a reduced squad. Chelsea for example have named only four home-grown players in their ranks (see below), but their squad contains only 19 names. - In keeping with UEFA guidelines, an Under-21 player is defined as one who is under the age of 21 on January 1 in the year in which the season commences. For the 2010-11 campaign, Under21 players will have been born on or after January 1, 1989. - In addition to the 25 registered players, teams are allowed an unlimited number of players under the age of 21. - Players under the age of 21 can be, if needed, used to make up the 25-man squad. - Clubs are only allowed changes in their squad list during transfer windows, with provisions set aside of extenuating circumstances. - These new regulations affect only Premier League matches. They do not apply to UEFA Champions League, Carling Cup or the FA Cup.

Chelsea (19 players, 4 homegrown): Petr Cech, Henrique Hilario, Ross Turnbull, Branislav Ivanovic, Ashley Cole, Jose Bosingwa, Paulo Ferreira, Yuri Zhirkov, John Terry, Alex, Michael Essien, Ramires, John Obi Mikel, Frank Lampard, Yossi Benayoun, Florent Malouda, Salomon Kalou, Nicolas Anelka, Didier Drogba.

In fact. However. Birmingham: (TBA) With a 27 man first team squad comprising of 11 foreign players and 16 home-grown. neither would count into the the club's squad of 25.the 20-year-old would not have counted in his squad of 25 and would have been an asset for this campaign. His 12 home-grown players in his 31-man squad are all certain first-teamers when fit. Birmingham manager Alex McLeish will have no worries about the new regulations. He will have to decide what to do with any under-performing foreigners on his list though. he signed Aleksander Hleb. Everton: (TBA) Toffee boss David Moyes has stated that he is happy with the squad at his disposal. Martin Jiranek and Jean Beausejour. and Nicola Zigic to bolster his forward line. given he is only allowed a full squad of 25. he has been quite active in the transfer market.In addition. . Kevin Davis and Fabrice Muamba forming the spine of his side. with the likes of Gary Cahill. and with 11 home-grown players and 19 foreign. On the final day of the window. it looks like Everton should have just the right mix to fit for the new regulations. Bolton: (TBA) Trotters boss Owen Coyle should have no trouble with the new regulations. picking up astute buys like goalkeeper Ben Foster from Manchester United for his defence. with Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey still under 21. Moyes must certainly be hopping mad that midfielder Dan Gosling was allowed to move to Newcastle on a free transfer as a result of an administrative error. Blackpool: (TBA) With a small squad of 25 that comprises of 11 foreigners and 14 home-grown players. manager Ian Holloway will have no problems whatsoever with the new regulations.
However. or to either sell or simply leave him out from his squad. so the home-grown category will not be much of an issue for manager Harry Redknapp. and will probably look to his reserves and youth squad to fill in the remaining four slots to meet the category. on the other hand. Redknapp will also enjoy the services of the exciting Danny Rose. However. The 25player limitation means that he has to decide if he wants to include the talented but injury-prone defender. with only 21 first team players. Wigan Athletic (TBA) In an effort to keep the wage bill down. Whether or not these players get any serious time of the pitch. he does have a headache on his hands when it comes to Jonathan Woodgate.Tottenham (TBA) Half of the 30-man first team squad at Tottenham is English. who is still currently in America recovering from knee injuries. club chairman Dave Whelan and manager Roberto Martinez have kept a very spartan first team for a club at this level. is another question. Martinez faces a challenge with only four players falling under the home-grown category. as he is still 20. . who will not fall into the 25member squad list.
