What is the domestic transfer window, when is the deadline and who can Premier League clubs sign?

AFTER weeks of intense wheeling and dealing, the transfer deadline has passed.

However things are a little different to usual this year and Premier League clubs will have a second chance to make signings with the domestic transfer window.

What is the domestic transfer window?

A domestic-only window – so transfer between English clubs – will remain open until Friday, October 16.

However, Premier League clubs will only be allowed to do business with teams OUTSIDE the top flight.

Signings made during this window will also be unable to play in the Champions League until Spring as the registration deadline is on Tuesday, October 6.

But there are still plenty of top targets that could be snapped up such as Watford's Ismaila Sarr, Brentford's Said Benrahma and Bournemouth's David Brooks.

When did the transfer window close?

This season, the window opened on July 27 after the Premier League campaign was finally completed the day before on July 26.

Free agents who had negotiated extensions to their contracts were then able to talk to other clubs at this point.

The window remained open for 10 weeks, shutting for international transfers on Monday, October 5.
