Premier League votes to close transfer window before season starts

Next summer’s transfer window in the Premier League will close before the start of the 2018-19 campaign, following a vote by the 20 top-flight clubs.

In 2018, the transfer window will close at 5pm on the Thursday before the season begins – August 9.

The World Cup final in Russia will be held on July 15 so Premier League clubs will have less than four weeks to get all their business sorted following the completion of the tournament.

They will still be able to sell players past the deadline as buying clubs adhere to their own domestic deadlines – meaning English clubs could finish their business on August 9 and still have to fend off offers for their top players.

According to the paper, Crystal Palace and Watford were opposing the plan, while Manchester City, West Ham, West Brom, Swansea and Newcastle were all in favour, as long as other European leagues fell into line.

Such changes require the support of two-third majority to pass.
