Window to close at 5pm on 1st September

Premier League officials have confirmed the transfer window will close on Tuesday 1st September at 5pm. Trading between clubs is normally scheduled to end on the final day of August but has been put back because of the bank holiday at the end of the month. "The Premier League confirms that the summer transfer window will close at 5pm on Tuesday, September 1," read a statement from the league. "Following normal Premier League guidelines, it has been put back because August 31 falls on a bank holiday." A similar extension was applied last summer because 31st August fell on a Sunday, while the winter's transfer deadline was also pushed back.
