EFL Clubs to Discuss Pre-Season Closure of the Summer Transfer Window

With discussion surrounding the summer transfer window closing prior to the start of the season, the EFL have issued a statement.
Following recent speculation surrounding proposals to close the Summer Transfer Window prior to the start of the season, the EFL has issued a statement confirming that the organisation and its members will discuss the matter in September.

The statement, released via EFL.com, confirms; The EFL Board and its clubs have previously expressed the opinion that closing the summer transfer window in advance of the season commencing would be an improvement on the current position.

On this basis we will be tabling the matter for discussion with clubs in September. It will be important that all the consequences of such a decision are fully considered, as the requirements of our clubs are different to those in Europe’s top flight leagues.
