EPL clubs agree to extend summer transfer window

Premier League clubs agree to extend summer transfer window

February 6, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
Now, the English top-flight will synchronize the end of its transfer window to the rest of the other top leagues in Europe.

What started out as a suggestion ended up becoming a reality, as Premier League teams will now fight with the same rules against their European peers for all top signings every summer.

A statement by the league was released earlier today informing of this decision taken at a Shareholders' Meeting.

Here's the full press release.

"At a Shareholders' Meeting today, Premier League clubs voted to adopt a change to the Summer Transfer Window closing date for season 2020/21.  This will move the closing date back to the traditional point at the end of August/early September. The 2020 closing date will therefore be 17:00 BST on 1 September (31 August 2020 being a UK Bank Holiday). Clubs agreed after discussing the topic at length at previous Shareholders' Meetings," the document states.

According to an interview in the Mirror, Liverpool chairman Tom Werner admitted that all "Big Six" clubs voted in similar fashion to guarantee this change. 

"We felt it was in the best interests of the league to be in sync with the other leagues and extend the window until the end of August," Werner said.
