Premier League clubs have voted to close next summer’s transfer window before the 2018-19 season starts.
From next season, the window will close at 17:00 BST on the Thursday before the Premier League campaign begins.
The vote was not unanimous and clubs will still be able to sell players until the end of the normal window.
The window across Europe runs until 31 August. The Premier League’s move means while clubs will be able to sell until that date, buying activity will cease on 9 August for the 2018-19 season.
