The Scottish Football Association says it is "encouraged" about the prospect of a league restructuring process going ahead following talks with the relevant bodies.

Members of the SFA's Professional Game Board met with representatives from the Scottish Premier League and the Scottish Football League at Hampden Park to discuss the proposals.

These are thought to include having two SPL divisions of 12 teams each, with a play-off system coming into operation once each club had played one another home and away.

A statement on the SFA website read: "The PGB is encouraged by the common ground established on many issues in what is an emotive subject.

"The respective league bodies will now hold further discussions with their member clubs, in the hope that this common ground can be expanded upon within each proposal.

"The next meeting of the PGB is scheduled for January 30 2013. However, it has offered to reconvene earlier to expedite the process once the bodies have held further talks with their members."
