EPL transfer window

The English Premier League transfer window will run for 10 weeks until October 5. The 2020-21 season is due to begin a month later than scheduled in September. The transfer window will open on July 27, the day after the pandemic-delayed season ends, the league said yesterday following a decision by clubs. EPL clubs will have from October 5-16 to sign players on loan or permanently from the 72 teams in the English Football League. The transfer window plans still have to be approved by FIFA, which said in April that it would be flexible with transfer windows and allow them to be moved “so they fall between the end of the old season and the start of the new season.” Clubs had been previously granted a one-day window to register new players on July 1. Chelsea had made the first major transfer move ahead of next season, signing Germany striker Timo Werner from RB Leipzig last month. It has also signed Morocco winger Hakim Ziyech from Ajax Amsterdam.
