Details of the new Premier League transfer window which opens this week…

With the Premier League and EFL voting earlier this year to close the English transfer window at 5 p.m. BST on August 9, there will be an almighty scramble for new players this summer.

The new dates are to ensure that all transfers are completed before the start of the 2018/19 season.

'Yes. In fact, deals can be agreed before May 17, however, the paperwork cannot be processed until the window has officially opened.

Due to a recent change in Federation Internationale de Football Association rules, there is set to be a change in the transfer window's opening and closing dates.

The Football League, whose window for permanent signings has already reopened, have also confirmed they will comply with the August 9 pre-season deadline.

The rule only affects players bought by a Premier League club - and teams in England will still be allowed to sell players to other leagues in which the transfer window is open. With uncertainty as to who is running their teams, what are the chances of those clubs rolling out a smart, strategic transfer strategy later this week, created to avoid a panic-stricken spending spree in the first week of August?

With only 25 days between the end of the World Cup and closure of the English transfer window, there will be plenty of rushed decisions and mistakes made this summer. In Italy and Germany it will be on July 1 and in Spain it will be on July 2.

Everton, who endured a disappointing season to their standards, will hope to spend more wisely in the transfer window this summer.

In early September 2017, the headline news was that from now on the window would close before the season kicked off.

It opened on Monday, May 7 for domestic transfers.

"But before all of that, there is a World Cup to consider, and a lot of clubs and players will want to wait until after Russian Federation because they may get a better offer if the player has a good tournament".

Man City are defending champions and will be looking to retain their title following a monumental and historic season that saw them break the record for most points accumulated in a single Premier League season (100) .

EFL clubs will still be able to sign players on loan until August 31. They will still be able to loan players and register players that are free agents up until August 31, 2018.
