Summer Transfer Window

Leon Balogun, Brighton & Hove Albion

The summer transfer window gives Premier League clubs the chance to sell and purchase players ahead of the new season. 

Windows were introduced as part of a compromise agreement with the European Commission about how the whole transfer system worked and how it could best preserve contractual stability for both the player and the club while allowing movement at prescribed times during the year - the summer and winter transfer windows in effect. 

The 2018 summer transfer window opens at 00:01 on 17 May and will close at 17:00 BST on Thursday 9 August.
