When does the 2020 summer transfer window open?

The summer window opens in England is set to open at the end of the season - though the specific date remains to be seen due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Players can be officially registered with their new clubs when the Fifa international window opens on July 1 - though Fifa guidelines suggest players joining in July will not be able to play for their new clubs during the current 2019/20 season.

From January 1 onwards, Premier League players with six months left on their contract have been able to negotiate and agree pre-contract deals with foreign clubs.
