Here, BTSport.com brings you everything you need know before the transfer window slams shut across Europe.

When does the Premier League transfer window close?

The 2019/20 Premier League transfer window closes at 5pm on Thursday 8 August.

This transfer deadline is on a Thursday because Liverpool take on newly promoted Norwich City in the season’s curtain-raiser on Friday 9 August at 8pm.

Prior to last season, the summer transfer window closed on the last day of August, but Premier League managers and club officials complained about the negative impact of transfer speculation on their players during the season.

When does the EFL transfer window close?

The Championship window closes on the same date as the Premier League (Thursday 8 August).

However, League One and League Two clubs can continue to work until Monday 2 September (August 31, traditionally deadline day, falls on a Saturday this year).

When does the Scottish transfer window close?

The summer transfer window also officially closes in Scotland at midnight on Monday 2 September, almost a month after the start of the 2019/20 Scottish Premiership season.

When does the transfer window close in Europe?

The transfer windows in Spain, Germany and France close on Monday 2 September, while the Italian window shuts at the earlier date of Friday 23 August.

With another exciting Premier League season on the horizon, BT Sport has won the live rights to a further 20 matches, taking the total to 52 for three years from the start of the 2019/20 season.
