The Premier League summer transfer window in 2019 again opened -- and is closing -- earlier than other leagues in Europe.
The transfer window for domestic deals opened on Thursday, May 16.
However, international transfers will not be possible until the FIFA international window opens on Thursday, June 11, although for contractual reasons many deals will not be technically completed until July 1 or later.
The transfer window will then close at 5 p.m. BST on Thursday, Aug. 8 -- with the new Premier League season scheduled to begin on the weekend of Saturday, Aug. 10.
No club will be able to buy or loan a player after Aug. 8 -- but they will be able to sign up players who are free agents.
The Championship has decided to match the Premier League's date of Aug. 8. Unlike last season, however, Championship clubs will not be able to continue to loan players after that date. Clubs in Leagues One and Two can continue to trade players freely up to Sept. 2.
