This summer’s English transfer window will close on 9 August, more than three weeks earlier than usual.
The window opened on 17 May and there have been plenty of big-money deals already, with Manchester City and Liverpool paying £60m or more for Riyad Mahrez and Alisson respectively.
Even in a World Cup summer, Premier League clubs voted to make the window shorter this year.
Usually the English summer transfer window closes at the end of August, but this year the official deadline has been set for Thursday, 9 August.
That means all Premier League and English Football League clubs must complete transfer deals to buy players before the top-flight season starts on Friday, 10 August.
