Transfer window: When can Chelsea start signing players this summer?

Brighton manager Chris Hughton

Sky Sports claim the Premier League want to open the window on Thursday.

Every summer as soon as the Premier League season is over, no matter what is to come in the time before one season ending and the next season starting, we hear about so many transfer rumours.

When does the window open and close?

In France, the transfer window will open on June 9.

The windows in those four leagues will close on August 31.

So clubs can sign players from May 17?

There's big changes when it comes to the Premier League though and teams were going to be in an even bigger rush to spend their money.

The reason for the move is because the Premier League voted to bring forward the transfer deadline to August 9 this year.

The EFL transfer window is already open.

FC's club correspondents run the rule over their team's campaign, providing a grade, their star player, flop, highlight, low point and what to look for in the summer transfer window. Clubs involved in play-offs can sign players now - but cannot play them until their season is over.

The Premier League had already announced that they would close the window on August 9, prior to the start of next season, in order to avoid disruption once the campaign is under way.

They have also been linked with Neymar, while Liverpool are desperate to keep Mohamed Salah away from the clutches of Real and Barcelona.

One player dominated the game this year, earning a record 303 points and ensuring that 56.7% of FPL managers had him in their side by the end of the season.

However, rather bizarrely, when the Summer Transfer Window would actually begin, has been shrouded in secrecy, with no official confirmation.

What are the windows for other leagues?

To preserve the overall time frame when deals can be done, Federation Internationale de Football Association now requires the Premier League to bring forward the opening date of the summer window, which will be effective immediately.

Clubs are able to buy players from any country as long as their own window is open, which means Premier League clubs can still sell players after their window closes on August 9.

All very unusual as to why the start date has been given such secret treatment.
