Summer Transfer Window Set To Be Moved With Lower League Teams Pushing For Flexible Timescale

The next transfer window may only open in September, according to the Daily Mail. FIFA have told country associations that they are allowed to open their windows as and when they feel fit to do so.

However, with English divisions not expected to finish their seasons until July, and UEFA planning to conclude European competitions in August, it means it could be several months before clubs are allowed to buy and sell players again.

The Mail report that a number of EFL clubs are pushing for the next transfer window to be open for an extended period of time to allow clubs as much flexibility as possible, with incomes being heavily hit by the global health crisis.

Teams like Middlesbrough don’t want to be forced into selling players in order to balance the books due to arbitrary deadlines

It means that there has been no decision made as to when the next transfer window will be shut, with so much uncertainty regarding when football will resume in England.
