Mike Dean has reportedly signed a deal to become a dedicated Premier League VAR official next season.

Dean, one of the top-flight’s most popular and controversial referees, retired from on-pitch officiating at the end of last season after 22 years. His 560th  and final game in the middle saw Chelsea beat Watford at Stamford Bridge in May.

The 54-year-old has been expected to leave the game entirely following his decision to retire.

Some reports had even linked him to stints on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! and Strictly Come Dancing. But according to the Daily Mail, Dean will now stay on into next season as a dedicated VAR official at Stockley Park.

Dean already has plenty of experience in the VAR hub, having operated the technology on multiple occasions since it was introduced three years ago.

And he will now lend his considerable expertise to the video assistant referee’s role on a full-time basis as the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) continues its overhaul
