UEFA will consider introducing squad limits and changes to the transfer system to prevent European teams hoarding players and stem the growing gap between rich and poor clubs, its president Aleksander Ceferin said Wednesday.Europe's smaller leagues complain that big teams cream off their players at a young age, only to immediately send them on loan elsewhere, while the likes of Ajax Amsterdam and Benfica, once major powers, have effectively become feeder clubs.Ceferin did not give any further details on what he meant by luxury taxes, but added that UEFA could work with global football body FIFA to change the transfer market or do so via its own licensing regulations.Ceferin did not specifically refer to this in his speech but, speaking to reporters afterward, the UEFA chief said he also recognized the importance of the biggest leagues.
