EPL clubs agree to extend summer transfer window

first_img As SunSport revealed, the Big Six voted as a bloc, initially to confirm that change was needed and then in favour of the change back to the previous system. The other option, for an early deadline regarding deals between Premier League clubs and a later one for transfers to and from Europe and the EFL, was backed by some smaller Prem sides. But the Big Six view held sway and the League announced the change. In a statement, the Prem said: “At a Shareholders’ Meeting today, Premier League clubs voted to adopt a change to the Summer Transfer Window closing date for season 2020/21.

Clubs voted to introduce an early window closure for the 2018-19 season. That meant Prem sides could only register players for the new season up until the Thursday before the start of the campaign. Despite a move led by Chelsea and Manchester United to go back to the previous system for this season, the clubs voted to stick with the earlier deadline for another year. But Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal, initially in favour of the early window deadline, changed sides after another summer of uncertainty. Clubs noted that European rivals had up to 25 extra days to finish off their summer business, which meant more than three weeks of speculation. Spurs fretted over schemer Christian Eriksen, while Paul Pogba’s Manchester United future was also an ongoing debate before the end of August.center_img Promoted ContentThe Funniest Prankster Grandma And Her GrandsonWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Top 10 Iconic Personalities On TV NowWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooWho’s The Best Car Manufacturer Of All Time?8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its GrowthThe 10 Best Secondary Education Systems In The WorldCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table TopPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D Graffiti8 Amazing Facts About Ancient Egyptlast_img
