Regarding the extra domestic window,the Premier League statement confirmed:
“During this window, Premier League clubs will only be able to trade with EFL clubs (either loans or permanent registrations).
No transfers can take place between Premier League clubs in this period.
The transfer window is subject to the approval of FIFA.”
To supplement this, the EFL confirmed in their statement that: “any player registered before the completion of the 2019/20 season will not be eligible to play for their new Club until season 2020/21 commences.”
It went on to state: “The window for international registrations closes at 11pm on Monday 5 October, with an agreement in place with the Premier League for an extended two-week domestic only window which will close at 5pm on Friday 16 October.”
Last year, the transfer window ran until August 8th, as the Premier League decided to end the transfer window before the season began.
Notable signings from last year’s transfer window include: Nicolas Pepe, Youri Tielemans and Harry Maguire
Clubs are still expecting that the 2020/21 football season will kick off on September 12th, after the international break.
