The Premier League will issue new security guidance to football clubs this week following the Paris terror attacks.

France's national stadium was targeted during a friendly between France and Germany. Four days on, the same French players who were at the Stade de France when suicide bombers blew themselves up outside will take to the field.

Extra security measures will be in place at that game tonight when England take on France at Wembley stadium.

Premier League officials say they will provide a full briefing to all member clubs on Thursday and will issue a public statement on the situation.

We are actively engaged with our security advisers and the appropriate authorities, including the Home Office and senior representatives from the police, to assess current security guidance to Premier League clubs.

There is a club meeting later this week where a full security briefing will be given. Following that, further guidance will be issued to the clubs as well as a public statement so fans are fully aware of what to expect when arriving at stadiums.
