Wolves' proposal to scrap VAR from next season is set to be rejected at the Premier League's meeting on Thursday. 

The West Midlands side triggered an unprecedented vote, after claiming that 'the price we are paying for a small increase in accuracy, is at odds with the spirit of the game'. 

It will come to a head at a shareholders' meeting in Harrogate, which will include representatives from all 20 teams who will participate in the Premier League next season.

Wolves need 13 other clubs to vote in favour of scrapping the technology, though the Telegraph have reported that this is unlikely to happen. 

It's said that Manchester United, Liverpool and West Ham are among clubs that feel the system should stay - but with improvements.

One change to the system has already been announced ahead of the 2024-25 season.

Semi-automated offsides will be introduced which is hoped to cut the average length of a VAR offside check by an average of 30 seconds.

The technology is already used in the Champions League and Serie A, and would mean that incorrect calls like Luis Diaz's offside for Liverpool against Tottenham would not have taken place. 

The Telegraph claim that clubs will be given a brief on a deal that has been struck with American software company Second Spectrum, which uses AI and a chip in the ball to identify when attackers are ahead of defenders. 

Other potential improvements and tweaks to the various system will also be discussed at the meeting.  

Mail Sport last month reported how Wolves were the hardest hit team for decisions going against them over the past five seasons - since VAR was introduced. 

Wolves had a number of VAR decisions go against them last season, with one of the most notable coming when a penalty was not awarded for Manchester United's Andre Onana clattering into Sasa Kalajdzic in stoppage time of a 1-0 defeat. 

Ahead of Thursday's vote, the Premier League said: 'The Premier League can confirm it will facilitate a discussion on VAR with our clubs at the annual general meeting next month. Clubs are entitled to put forward proposals at shareholders' meetings and we acknowledge the concerns and issues around the use of VAR.

'However, the league fully supports the use of VAR and remains committed, alongside PGMOL [Professional Game Match Officials Limited], to make continued improvements to the system for the benefit of the game and fans.' 

Squad cost controls and a potential spending cap will also be discussed at the Premier League  shareholders' meeting. 

The Telegraph report that clubs will be given the option of trialling new systems before setting them in stone.
