Major changes to Transfer Deadline Day?

This could lead to clubs from the likes of La Liga, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and more still being able to come in, unsettle and even sign players. It means the 2018 window will close at 5pm on the Thursday before start of season.

We're all for ending the window before the start of the season, but anything less than a blanket ruling across the board is utterly futile.

Transfer Deadline Day will no longer by on August 31st but rather in early or mid-August, depending on the start of the season - August 9th in 2018, for example.

However, clubs from other competitions where the window remains open will still be able to purchase players from the Premier League.

Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho, Southampton's Virgil Van Dijk, Chelsea's Diego Costa and West Bromwich Albion's Jonny Evans, to name a few, were unsure whether or not they would be leaving their current clubs up until the final days and hours of the window.

Alejandro Moreno and Alexis Nunes weigh the pros and cons of the vote to move the Premier League transfer deadline.

"I am aware there are serious discussions around Europe regarding the shortening of the summer transfer window and we are following them closely", the UEFA president told The Times.

Well, several clubs had complained about the disruptcy caused due to the transfer sagas which continue well after the season starts, which turns out to be hard both for the players and for the managers.

The Premier League accepts the new proposal with it effective starting next summer.

"To have a transfer window that runs into the season and overlaps the season I think is really poor".

These changes do not affect the winter transfer window or the lower English soccer divisions. Are they tapped up in the afternoon of the game by people who want to get them out?

The global break means that there is time for the dust to settle before these newly-formed squads focus on attacking the season ahead.
