The Scottish Professional Football League has agreed a deal to show live Scottish football on mainstream television in China for the first time.

The deal, thought to be worth about £500,000 a year for three years, will make up to 55 Premiership matches available across TV, online and mobile.

It is part a deal struck in 2013 worth about £20m over 10 years.

SPFL matches are shown in a number of countries around the world, including Australia and the United States.

All 42 clubs will be made aware of the deal at a board meeting at Hampden on Monday.
