Premier League sides mull transfer reforms

Premier League sides mull transfer reforms”

The report added that the English clubs will meet next month to discuss a possible date change.

The January transfer window would remain in place in order to give clubs the opportunity to trade midseason, but the distraction and uncertainty of managers having to fend off speculation surrounding their players for up to three weeks after the season has begun would, in theory, become a thing of the past if a new deadline falls in the days before competitive action kicks off.

The window now closes on August 31, and this term that will have already seen Liverpool play five competitive fixtures, including three in the league.

The proposals would not affect transfers from Premier League clubs to foreign sides or vice versa, thus Diego Costa and Philippe Coutinho's desire for moves from respectively champions Chelsea to Atletico Madrid and Liverpool to Barcelona could still go ahead. Among the 20 clubs, at least 14 clubs should be in favour of the decision to bring back the deadline for the 2018/19 season.

Here, we look at some of the top football transfer stories from the British and world media in The Sport Review's Grapevine, published twice a day during the summer transfer window.

However, if the transfer deadline in England is brought forward, clubs could then be at a disadvantage if they lose a player after the English deadline. It makes sense that when the season is starting, planning for the team is over.

One of the doubts about the idea is that Premier League clubs could be weaker if the transfer window ended at the start of August.

"I know the market has changed, it's become very hectic, but we won't take that as an excuse".
