Danske Bank Premiership clubs will be able to keep their four European slots and be permitted to play in a cross-border competition worth £10m per year under current models being discussed, Sunday Life Sport can reveal.

Proposals currently under consideration are based on retaining the Danske Bank Premiership consisting of 12 teams playing each other home and away (22 game season), then the top teams in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, likely to be six from each association, to break away to battle in a lucrative 'Super League'.
