The Women"s Super League gave its backing to the proposals on Monday, while the Football Association has already said it would look to introduce the new protocols at the "earliest possible stages of the 2020/21 FA Cup and Women"s FA Cup"
Speaking to News, PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor described concussion substitutes as "very important" and said he expects them to be implemented in the English game "sooner rather than later"
"We"ve made improvements in regulations, particularly with regard to concussion and head injuries," Taylor said
"It"s not always been followed and implemented as we would like but it"s becoming increasingly important that we should do all we can
"People know the dangers of taking part but that"s not to say we haven"t got to show a real duty of care
"I think the concussion subs have also highlighted the issue that we can"t be too careful with head injuries and any consequent problems
"I would expect that to be implemented much sooner rather than later, albeit they are looking at a pilot programme
But I think there is increasing willingness to adopt that." "PL out of step over five subs rule"The Premier League clubs are also expected to again discuss allowing five substitutions at this week"s meeting, despite rejecting the idea on two previous occasions
It comes after repeated calls from a number of top-flight managers, including Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Frank Lampard, for the Premier League to follow the lead of other major European leagues that have moved from three to five replacements for the 2020/21 season

Taylor believes the Premier League should belatedly follow suit, saying: "You have to think about the integrity of the game
We have a duty of care to our players
These are some of the best players in the world and we need to look after them
"We"ve addressed the issue on more than one occasion now and I"ve spoken to all Premier League chief execs and chairmen, and of course to colleagues at the Premier League
"[We"re] trying to convince them that this would be a good move
I think at the moment, we are out of step."
