The transfer window in the U.K. is going to change. Premier League clubs have voted to close next year’s summer transfer window before 2018 starts.
Starting from 2018/19 the window for buying players will now close at 05:00pm (CET) on the Thursday before the start of season.
The Italian football federation is still helding talks with clubs about this but in the U.K. things are moving faster. According to ‘Sky Sport UK’, the Premier League clubs have decided that next year’s summer transfer window will close on August 9, 2018.
This new regulation has an immediate effect only for the local transfer market operations. Negotiations between a Premier League club and a foreign team can be finalized after that date though.
