Here's why the Premier League transfer window is opening this week

Here's why the Premier League transfer window is opening this week”

That's because for some reason England's top tier chose to close the window before the season starts.

The windows in those four leagues will close on August 31.

Clubs in England's top flight recently voted to move this summer's deadline from August 31 to August 9, ensuring that their window closes before the start of the 2018-19 season.

'The EFL transfer window is already open.

Leeds, who have made preliminary enquiries about Bartley, were optimistic that Swansea would be happy to sell the defender had they retained their Premier League status.

Everton, who endured a disappointing season to their standards, will hope to spend more wisely in the transfer window this summer.

Sky Sports reports that this summer's transfer window will now open on May 17 and close on August 9, before the beginning of the 2018/19 Premier League season.

This change is to be set in place to stop the interruption experienced by Premier League clubs due to the start of the Premier League season in August while the transfer window remains open.

They have also been linked with Neymar, while Liverpool are desperate to keep Mohamed Salah away from the clutches of Real and Barcelona.

The thinking being that this would curb the disruption and uncertainty in the past, caused by players being targeted after the games had started and clubs already had their squads finalised, only to then see interest in their key players.

A number of big-money transfers are tipped to go through this summer.

The regulations of the world's governing body state that every league must have at least one transfer window in a calendar year that lasts for 12 weeks.

To preserve the overall time frame when deals can be done, Federation Internationale de Football Association now requires the Premier League to bring forward the opening date of the summer window, which will be effective immediately.
