Football League consider making changes to summer transfer window

The Football League and the Premier League will both be seeking thoughts from their member clubs on whether or not to close the summer transfer window before the season kicks off in the future.

The current window, like many other major European leagues, closes on August 31 which is almost a full month into the campaign for sides in the Football League

The Premier League shareholders meet on September 7th and a vote will be held on the subject then, and the Football League will also be tabling discussions and a vote next month.

A Football League spokesman told the BBC: “The EFL board and its clubs have previously expressed the opinion that closing the window in advance of the season commencing would be an improvement on the current position.

“It will be important that all the consequences of such a decision are fully considered, as the requirements of our clubs are different to those in Europe’s top flight leagues.”
