The upcoming Premier League transfer window will open for 10 weeks from 27 July to 5 October.

The delayed 2019/2020 season had raised questions over how the summer transfer deadline would be affected.

However, an agreement has now been reached between Premier League shareholders, subject to approval from FIFA.

“Premier League Shareholders have agreed on the dates for the summer 2020 transfer window,” a statement read.

“The window will open for 10 weeks at the end of the current Premier League season, starting on 27 July and ending on 5 October.

“Following consultation with the EFL, a domestic-only window will be added from 5 October, closing 17:00 BST on 16 October.
