Joorabchian subsequently claimed that many Premier League players and teams conceal their third-party ownership of players. The Premier League took steps to outlaw third-party ownership  at its AGM in June with new rules L34 and L35 to outlaw any type of third ownership of players from the beginning of the —09 season.
The league's rule U18 had previously stated that the third parties were not permitted to "materially influence" a club's "policies or the performances of its teams".
