Premier League sides looking to change summer transfer window deadline BACK to August 31


The issue will be discussed at a Premier League club meeting later this month

The summer transfer window’s deadline is set to be forced back to August 31 by Premier League clubs.

The decision to change the deadline to before the season starts has gone down as a disaster by powerbrokers.

Danny Ings’ loan move from Liverpool to Southampton was one of the big deadline day transfers

It is understood the Football League loan window has also been farcical as players have been agreeing deals to be made permanent in January.

And according to The Sun, the window will be discussed at the Premier League club meeting this month.

In order to get back in line with the rest of Europe, a club needs to propose the move and 14 others must agree.

If that happens, the EFL is expected to do the same, showing they are equally unhappy with their window.

Foreign clubs benefited from the early deadline in England as they were able to use that to pick off players on the cheap.

It has also been noted that when the window remained open until the end of August, players’ futures were only in doubt for the opening three games of the league season.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are being taken to court over the signing of 16-year-old wonderkid Indy Boonen from Genk.
