Premier League clubs vote to re-extend summer transfer window

Premier League clubs have voted to change the summer transfer window to bring it in line with the rest of Europe.

In a statement on the decision, the Premier League wrote: "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."
