Transfer window dates: When does the summer transfer window open? | Football | Sport

The summer transfer window is certain to see more big-name deals when it opens, with the likes of Manchester City looking to recruit more stars ahead of the new Premier League season.

At Chelsea, manager Maurizio Sarri will be unable to sign any new players, as the club is banned from bringing in players until January 2020.

Tottenham could be targeting a very different summer after making no signings in the build-up to the 2018/19 season, while Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United and the rest of the Premier League squads are likely to be strengthened by the start of August.

Premier League clubs concluded 518 deals in the January transfer window, spending £582million.

Big names leaving the Premier League included United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, who took a trip to China to sign for Shandong Luneng Taishan for £10m.

Newcastle waited until deadline day to break their transfer record, signing Paraguay playmaker Miguel Almiron for £20m from MLS side Atlanta United.

Gonzalo Higuain joined Chelsea on loan from Juventus and Jonny Castro Otto joined Wolves for £15m from Atletico Madrid.

When does the summer transfer window open?

The latest influx of new players will start joining and leaving Premier League clubs just five days after the end of the season.

One of the most high-profile new faces will arrive at Chelsea. The Blues bought Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund for £58m in the biggest deal of the January window, but have loaned him back to the German giants until this summer.

Premier League teams can complete transfers again from midnight on Thursday, May 16.

When does the January transfer window close?

Transfer deadline day is on Thursday, August 8, 2019, when Premier League teams have to conclude their business by 5pm.

However, clubs can apply for a short extension if they submit official paperwork before the deadline.

Free agents can be acquired outside of the transfer window period but loan deals cannot.

All professional clubs in England and Scotland must adhere to the same rules to ensure a level playing field.

When does the window open and shut for the rest of Europe?

France: The Ligue 1 window opens on June 16 and closes on September 2.

Spain: The Liga window opens on July 1 and closes on September 2.

Germany: The Bundesliga window opens on July 1 and closes on September 2.

Italy: The Serie A window opens on July 1 and closes on August 23.
