According to Financial Times, the EU is considering extending the Brexit-transition period by an extra year. The news came late Tuesday night, before the EU summit in Brussels on Wednesday.

One of the key issues have been the Northern Ireland border and according to media sources the border issue and extending the transition period are going in hand in hand.

In the financial markets, the sterling gained 0.4 percent to 1,32 US-dollars and 0.3 percent to euro. Ten-year gilt yields rose one basis point to 1.62 percent, Bloomberg reported.
