Should the clubs fail to reach an agreement with the FA, then it could become tougher for EPL teams to bring in players from European Union nations.
The League are keen to introduce work permits for all players, regardless of current stipulations that rely on global caps, Federation Internationale de Football Association ranking, transfer fee or wages. It's reported the FA would offer a "governing body endorsement" for a work permit for every overseas player who signs a contract with a Premier League side, in exchange for a deal to boost the number of homegrown players.
And while the clubs recognise the fine job Scudamore has done during his 19 years at the helm of the Premier League, some are surprised by the bonus request given the salary and bonuses the 59-year-old has commanded in that time.
Reports from across the water have suggested that the English FA is looking at a range of options related to the changing political climate and aligned with a desire to get more home-grown players involved at the highest level.
The FA, meanwhile, have always been keen to use Brexit as an opportunity to increase the percentage of English players in the top flight.
The deal has been struck two years after the bank ended a long-standing association as the Premier League's title sponsor, with a number of brands such as Nike, Cadbury and - from January - Coca-Cola having roughly equivalent sponsorship rights.
At the moment, EPL clubs can carry as many as 17 foreign players on their 25-man first-team squads.
Five Premier League clubs - Manchester City, Tottenham, Brighton, Huddersfield and Watford - meet the existing limit of 17 overseas players.
Only 33% of Premier League minutes were played by English players last season and the negative trend continues when only youth players are considered, with the Premier League trailing behind other major European leagues when it comes to giving opportunities to homegrown talent.
Before the Brexit referendum the-then FA chairman Greg Dyke spoke of limiting "an terrible lot of bog- standard foreign players".
The proportion of English players starting top-flight matches was as low as 28 per cent only two weekends ago - 62 out of 220 players.
However, clubs are now allowed to sign European players when they turn 16 but that will change to 18 after Brexit takes place.
Chelsea and Liverpool have 16 while Arsenal have 14.
Note: Players like Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku are exempt as they trained in English academies.
