The summer transfer window will run well into autumn this year after the Premier League and EFL agreed that deals could continue to be made until 16 October.
Players across English football will be able to join new clubs from 27 July, the day after the restarted Premier League season comes to an end.
For international deals the window will close 10 weeks later on 5 October, with a further domestic-only window running for another 11 days.
A cut-off date of 5 October had been recommended by Uefa, so that club squads at the top of the men’s game would be completed in time to register for European competition.
An extension was agreed independently between the leagues, however, with an agreed priority of allowing extra scope for Football League clubs hit hard by Covid-19 to trade their way back to some kind of financial health.
The extended domestic window would allow for movement between EFL clubs and between the EFL and Premier League. Premier League teams will not be able to trade with each other during this time.
Any player who transfers during the window would not be registered to play for their new club until the beginning of the 2020-21 season. This rules out the possibility of someone signing during the window for one of the teams set to play in the Championship play-offs, where the final is scheduled for 4 August.
The details of the window were agreed by Premier League clubs and the EFL board. They are subject to approval from Fifa.
