The Premier League have once again opted to open the transfer window earlier and close it earlier than other major European leagues.
The Premier League clubs voted to close the window ahead of the first game this season and they will do the same again in August 2019, despite the fact that it gives their European rivals longer to make additions to their squads.
The Premier League transfer window will open on Thursday, May 16 and domestic transfers will be allowed.
However, international deals will not be permitted until FIFA’s international window opens on June 9, but contractual terms often mean deals are announced on July 1.
The transfer window will then close at 5pm BST on Thursday, August 8 with the new season all set to kick off on Saturday, August 10.
After that cut off point only only free-agent players will be allowed to sign and no loans are permitted either,
The Championship will also fall in with the Premier League’s date of August 8 and they will not be allowed to loan players after that date.
Clubs in League One and Two will be able to sign and loan players until August 31.
