The January 2020 transfer window for Premier League clubs will close at 11pm on Friday, January 31, it has been announced.
The 2020 winter transfer period will open on New Year’s Day.
The timings were confirmed at the top flight’s November shareholders’ meeting in central London on Thursday, attended by chairmen and chief executives of the 20 clubs.
Any deadline-day deals will need to complete deal sheets between 9pm and 11pm on the 31st. Clubs will have until midnight UK time on the 31st to complete FIFA transfer matching system (TMS) information to apply for international clearance for new signings.
It promises to be a busier than usual January window with Manchester City ready to spend money on their defence and Tottenham perhaps looking to offload one or two stars nearing the end of their contracts.
