Limit foreign footballers say MPs

A group of MPs has called on football clubs to cut the number of foreign players in the English game.

They want the government and football authorities to discourage clubs from recruiting so many overseas players.

A Commons motion, led by Liberal Democrat MP for Colchester Bob Russell, has been signed by 23 MPs who believe British players are being held back.

However, Conservative MEP Chris Heaton-Harris said the idea would breach employment legislation.
