Contracts Extended & Transfer Window To Be Moved
Monday, 6th Apr 2020 21:23
The summer transfer window will be moved and contracts ending on 30 June will be extended for a short period under proposals agreed by football's major stakeholders according to media reports.
The BBC is reporting that they understand talks initiated by world governing body Fifa and including confederations, federations, clubs, players and leagues have reached agreement over a number of issues arising out of the Covid-19 pandemic.
All parties now accept that completing the 2019-20 season by 30 June, as initially hoped, will not happen.
That being the case they are planning for those issues that will arise including that there will be players out of contract on June 30th and the need to move the transfer window presumably to start after July 12th the current working date for the Premier League and other major European Leagues to be completed and then closing later than the September 1st date currently in the calendar, something that Premier League clubs had agreed to do after the experiment of last summer when our window closed when the season started.
Again this shows that the plan is in place for football to restart, but obviously it will be dependent on how the next 2 months pan out and in that respect nothing is guaranteed.
