Summer Transfer Window: Premier League Clubs To Vote On Date Change

Premier League clubs are set to vote on the summer transfer window date change, as plans are being discussed to close the window before the season starts next year.

The summer transfer window currently closes in England on the 31st of August, in line with other top European leagues, which is over two weeks into the new Premier League season.

Voting is now set to take place in next months Premier League shareholders meeting on 7 September, a voting process that will require 14 clubs to vote in favour of the date change before it can be enacted.

Some Premier League managers have expressed their concerns over the current state of the summer transfer window, with Liverpool manager declaring his support for the date change.

Following the transfer speculations surrounding Liverpool’s want-away midfielder, Philippe Coutinho, Jurgen Klopp told a press conference that: “An earlier transfer deadline day would have helped us this year.”

“In general, it makes sense that when the season starts that the planning is over.”
