Each highlights programme will be available in full, on a catch-up basis on ITV Hub during the period of 30 days following its first transmission.

Highlights are currently shown on Quest, though their four-year contract with EFL expires at the end of this season. 

EFL Chief Executive Trevor Birch said: ‘With 1891 matches played across the season, it’s crucial for the EFL that the very best of our match action is widely accessible and we are delighted that ITV will show highlights of our games for the next two years.

‘As an experienced major broadcaster with a comprehensive sports portfolio, ITV’s commitment to high quality coverage will showcase the breadth and depth of our competitions to football supporters all over the country.’
