Transfer window revolution

Post  Hieronymus on 2017-08-14, 10:48 pm

Good news I think. The Premier League expected to agree to close the transfer window before the season starts in 2018.

Hooray and about time too! Not yet sure how this will affect the football league but who knows, maybe we won't care!

Transfer revolution: Window to shut before Premier League season starts next year

The transfer window will shut ­before the start of the season in sweeping new changes that are ­expected to be approved by the ­Premier League next month, ­Telegraph Sport has learned.
Representatives from the 20 ­top-flight clubs are to attend ­September’s shareholders’ meeting with the majority pushing for a new transfer deadline to be introduced, preventing managers from buying players after the season has got ­under way.
Telegraph Sport has discovered that moves are well advanced and already at “approval level”, in a ­potentially huge development for English football which is likely to be implemented next year.
It will be proposed that the ­deadline is brought forward to the week before the start of the 2018-19 Premier League season, with almost all of the 20 clubs understood to be behind the idea.
Watford are believed to be one of the few clubs to oppose it, but the League is expecting a majority vote of over two thirds to force significant changes.

Gylfi Sigurdsson's future remains unclear  

This year’s summer transfer window closes on Aug 31, nearly three weeks after the season started, and is threatening to become another chaotic finale of last-minute deals.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] has been one of the sagas of the summer, while [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]amid interest from rival clubs including Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.
Sigurdsson and Van Dijk did not feature for their respective clubs in their opening games this season due to the uncertainty. Sigurdsson was left at home during Swansea’s tour of the United States as he was not “in the right frame of mind”, while Van Dijk has submitted a written transfer request in an ­attempt to force a move, following Liverpool’s pursuit.
Ross Barkley’s situation at Everton continues to be under scrutiny and it is thought that Tottenham Hotspur – notoriously late operators in transfer windows – are poised to make their move for the midfielder later this month.

Many managers, including most recently Swansea’s Paul Clement, have criticised the current set-up and the mood for change is shared in most of the boardrooms across the country.
After [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], Clement said: “There’s frustration here and I’m sure Southampton are frustrated, too. That’s why I think if the ­window is shut before the season starts everything is sorted out and we can get on with the football.
“At our managers’ meeting at the Premier League last week, we spoke about it. The majority of clubs are in favour, but maybe all have to be for it to go through.”
Under the proposed new rules it is understood that English top-flight clubs will be permitted to sell players to clubs in other countries, but transfer deals from one Premier League club to another are to be off limits when the season starts.
The Premier League will act ­unilaterally, it is thought, and does not require approval from leagues in other countries to sign off the changes.
It remains unclear whether there will be any impact on the Football League at this stage, though it ­appears likely to be a formality in future.
Jonathan Barnett, the chairman of leading football agency Stellar Group, believes the proposed changes will have little effect on how clubs do their business.
“It makes sense and could make clubs more focused to do their deals early, but there will still be a deadline which creates panic,” he said.

How transfer window disrupted the opening weekend

Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool)

Brazilian has a back strain but handed in a transfer request less than 24 hours before the game against Watford.
Would this happen next season? It could as clubs would still be able to sell players to teams outside the Premier League, although Liverpool would be even more adamant he is not for sale if they could not buy a replacement.

Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal)

Has an abdominal strain but Man City will come in with another bid for the Arsenal man, whose future has dominated pre-season.
Would this happen next year? No.

Virgil van Dijk (Southampton)

Is training on his own and did not play against Swansea with multiple Premier League clubs interested in signing him.
Would this happen next season? No.

Diego Costa (Chelsea)

Striker is back in Brazil and in dispute with the club.
Would this happen next season? It could as Costa wants to join Atletico Madrid.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (Swansea)

Did not play against Southampton as he edges closer to a move to Everton.
Would this happen next season? No.

Ross Barkley (Everton)

Sat out the game against Stoke with a move to Tottenham thought likely.
Would this happen next season? No.

“People will still be unable to make their minds up and clubs won’t be agreeing deals. The selling clubs will still think they can get a bit more and hold out for more money.
“I don’t like the idea of last-minute pushing and shoving, but even with the deadline being brought forward there will be ridiculous things happening before the ­window closes. It doesn’t seem to affect other countries like it does with England.”
The Premier League’s next ­shareholders’ meeting is scheduled to take place in London on Sept 7, a week after the summer transfer window closes.
In the last meeting, held in ­Harrogate in June, the TV rights deal for the 2019-20 season onwards was one of the main agenda items and will be discussed further next month.
The prospect of games being played on Saturday nights and even Sunday mornings were mooted, while many of the smaller top-flight clubs are opposed to plans by the ‘Big Six’ for a greater share of money from games shown overseas.

Let's hope the EFL follows suit, it makes an awful lot of sense!   like

Can only be good for domestic football, but a move abroad could be achieved by the player out of spite even leading to a loss of better players.

Yeah, but once the Premier League do it then I imagine foreign leagues would follow suit. They don't like all the uncertainty etc after their leagues start either.

English Football League already saying they will look at doing the same. Good!

The entire professional game in England could adopt a summer transfer window that closes before the start of the season after the EFL announced it would discuss [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
It emerged on Monday that representatives from the 20 ­top-flight clubs are to attend ­next month’s shareholders’ meeting with the majority pushing for a new transfer deadline to be introduced, preventing managers from buying players after the campaign has got ­under way.
The EFL confirmed on Tuesday it could follow suit, a spokesman saying: “The EFL board and its clubs have previously expressed the opinion that closing the summer transfer window in advance of the season commencing would be an improvement on the current position.

“On this basis, we will be tabling the matter for discussion with clubs in September. It will be important that all the consequences of such a decision are fully considered, as the requirements of our clubs are different to those in Europe’s top flight leagues.”
Telegraph Sport has discovered such moves are well advanced at Premier League level, in a ­potentially huge development for English football which is likely to be implemented next year.
It will be proposed that the ­deadline is brought forward to the week before the start of the 2018-19 Premier League season, with almost all of the 20 clubs understood to be behind the idea.
