Video assistant refs could be introduced in the Premier League as early as the 2018-19 season, according to Ladbrokes.
The bookie is offering a price of 6/4 that we see the technology used in the top-flight immediately after the 2018 World Cup in Russia, while 7/4 says it takes another year to reach these shores.
Video technology was twice used to inform decisions during Spain's 2-0 friendly win over France on Tuesday night.
In one instance, to took 40 seconds for a decision to be reached.

And with Premier League officials previously stating they won't rush into a decision, 3/1 says we don't see Video Assistants until the start of the 2020-21 campaign or later.
Meanwhile, it's 4/1 that the technology is introduced as early as next season.
Ladbrokes News' Alex Apati said: "The use of Video Assistants brought about plenty of talk during the France v Spain game last night, and it's surely only a matter of time before we see them in the Premier League."
When will Video Assistant referees be introduced to Premier League?
- Start of 2018-19 campaign - 6/4
- Start of 2019-20 campaign - 7/4
- In 2020-21 campaign or later - 3/1
- Start of 2017-18 campaign - 4/1
