The African Nations Cup will be switched to the summer from 2019, the Confederation of African Football has confirmed.

They have also announced it will be expanded from 16 teams to 24 moving forward.

The move will be welcome news to the Premier League and clubs across Europe as it means they will no longer lose players during the middle of the season.

The tournament is currently staged in January and February and contested by 16 teams, but that will increase by eight and be held during June and July from 2019.
