Deadline Day as we know it is about to drastically change from next summer.
The Premier League have voted to shut the transfer window at 5pm on the Thursday before the season begins. This is a radical change from the traditional end of the window on the final day of August.
Under the new regulations, Premier League clubs will still be allowed to sell or loan out players to other teams around the world until their respective windows shut. The new ruling does not effect Football League clubs currently.
Premier League teams will now have three weeks less next summer to conduct their business.
Premier League clubs may now find themselves at a distinct disadvantage from next summer. Clubs throughout Europe will have the option of cherry picking players in the final three weeks of August, with Premier League clubs having no chance to find replacements.
The reasoning behind the move, is to allow clubs complete their squads before the campaign begins. This season, each club had played three games before the window was closed.
