Transfer window 'to shut before start of Premier League seasons'

Premier League clubs to vote for early end to transfers

Premier League clubs to vote for early end to transfers

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp shares a similar sentiment with a number of Premier League managers; if the summer transfer window closed before the regular season began, things would be a lot easier.

Premier League could bring in a revolutionary change in the structure of transfer window from next season.

A vote is set to take place at the next shareholders meeting on 7 September.

Liverpool boss Klopp said, "An earlier transfer deadline day would have helped us this year".

According to Federation Internationale de Football Association regulations, the transfer window should close by 1 September, or as near as practical if it clashes with a weekend.

Elite Daily reached out to the White House for further comment but did not receive a response at the time of publication. The civil contempt-of-court proceedings arose after Arpaio and his top deputies repeatedly ignored the court's orders.

A change could see those clubs against it or even agents potentially launch legal challenges, so it's far from cut and dry, but many would see the sense in having squad's and transfer speculation culled before the first kick off.

The traditionally chaotic last day of the window which gave us incidents such as Harry Redknapp chatting to Sky Sports through his vehicle window about how many players he wanted to sign before the deadline that same night may well be happening a bit earlier in the summer from next year onwards. I know there's talks about that changing in future. "If Liverpool were faced with a similar situation to the one they now have with Philippe Coutinho after the domestic window had closed, they would not be able to reinvest the transfer funds and bring in reinforcements", it says.

That said, both Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte have been frustrated by the Chelsea hierarchy's tendency to slow-play transfer negotiations in recent years, so bringing the deadline forward could eliminate a considerable source of tension at Stamford Bridge.

'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.
