Premier League

The English Premier League (EPL) on Thursday released the dates for the January 2020 transfer window.

In a statement on its official website, the Premier League revealed that the window will open on Wednesday 1 January and close at 23:00 GMT on Friday 31 January 2020.

The EPL also stated that clubs would have to submit their final 25-man squad for the rest of the campaign at 14:00 GMT on Wednesday 5 February 2020

The statement read: “Window for Premier League clubs to open on New Year’s Day and the deadline will be at 23:00 on Friday 31 January.

“New players signed on 1-2 January will not be eligible for Matchweek 21, but they can be made available for the following Matchweeks as clubs are permitted to make changes to their squad lists throughout the January window.

“Clubs completing deals late on Deadline Day, 31 January, will be able to submit a Deal Sheet between 21:00-23:00 GMT.

“Clubs will have until midnight on Deadline Day to complete the information needed by FIFA’s Transfer Matching System to apply for international clearance for new signings.

“Normally Premier League clubs will need to register their final 25-man squad for the rest of the campaign, a day after the transfer window closes, but because Deadline Day is the day before a round of fixtures, the deadline for submission of the final squad lists will be 14:00 GMT on Wednesday 5 February 2020.”
