The presidents of the 53 football federations in European governing body UEFA indicated Saturday they backed plans for 24 teams at future Euros following an informal meeting chaired by UEFA president Michel Platini in Vienna, a source said.

The well-informed source said there was a consensus on having 24 teams, up from the current 16, starting with the 2016 finals.

A final decision is to be taken by UEFA'a executive committee in late September in Bordeaux, France.

It remains to be seen how having an extra eight places would impact on the qualifying tournament.
