The dates for the summer transfer window have been set.

The window will open on July 27, at the conclusion of the Premier League and Championship seasons, and will run until 11pm on October 5.

In addition, there will be a two-week ‘domestic only’ transfer window in which Premier League and EFL clubs will be able to trade with one another.

However, no deals will be permitted between Premier League clubs during this period, which ends on October 16.
