Taylor is to stand down from his role as chief executive, a position he has held since 1981, at the end of the season clearing the way for a new individual to lead the players union.

Work on identifying the four-person selection committee tasked with appointing the PFA's new chief executive is underway. It is hoped the process of assembling the selection panel will be completed by the end of the month, with Taylor's replacement chosen by Easter.

According to the PFA website; of the five deputy or assistant chief executives under Taylor, just one - Bobby Barnes - is BAME.

In June, Raheem Sterling pointed towards the alarming lack of diversity at the top of English football.

'There's something like 500 players in the Premier League and a third of them are black and we have no representation of us in the hierarchy, no representation of us in the coaching staffs,' the England star explained. 'There's not a lot of faces that we can relate to and have conversations with.
