Premiership clubs are set to hold talks regarding a proposal from the SPFL Reconstruction Task Force, which if approved would see the Premiership and Championship extended to 14 teams next season.

It would mean Caley Thistle, who finished in second place, promoted to the top flight along with champions Dundee United and Hearts avoiding relegation from the Premeiership.

League One and League Two would be merged to create a 16-team division which would also allow Highland League champions Brora Rangers and Lowland League champions Kelty Hearts promotion.

For any proposal to be passed, 11 out of 12 Premiership clubs along with 75 per cent of lower league clubs are required to agree on league reconstruction.
