?Premier League clubs will meet on 12 September to discuss whether to change the summer transfer window deadline.
English sides had to finish all of their business before 17:00 on 8 August – the final day before the start of the top-flight season – whereas some leagues on the continent will still be able to sign players until September 2.
?Sky Sports write that ‘several’ unnamed ?Premier League teams are keen on extending the deadline to bring it more in line with those in mainland Europe.
No decision will be reached at the hearing, which will instead aim to assess the thoughts of officials at the 20 clubs in the first division.
If a vote is deemed necessary, the likeliest time for it to take place would be at the next scheduled conference in November.
Premier League clubs to meet & discuss changing the transfer deadline next month.
Absolutely mad how 14 clubs even voted for an early transfer deadline in the first place.
Man City, Man Utd, Palace, Watford & Swansea were the only ones who saw sense at the time.
