Premier League bid to improve VAR by introducing new technology.

Premier League bosses are reviewing the use of VAR and are in the process of developing enhanced technology.

The Premier League is reportedly set to introduce "limb-tracking technology" developed by Hawk-Eye in order to enhance VAR decisions.

The introduction of VAR has caused controversy so far this season, particularly with a number of tight offside calls going against attacking players.

The accuracy of technology to make decisions with such fine margins has come in for serious questioning - but chiefs are planning an improved system to address concerns.

According to Sportsmail, Hawk-Eye, who developed goal-line technology and the review systems in cricket and tennis, are developing a new system.

The use of multiple cameras will give video assistants access to an automated offside line in real time, tracking the back foot of every outfield player in each VAR game to provide a constant offside line to be instantly assessed when necessary.

This latest development comes as Premier League bosses prepare to meet to discuss a review of the current VAR system.
