FIFA have announced a change to their rules that will allow the Football Association to open the summer transfer window before the 2019/20 season finishes.
After being out of action since March, the Premier League will return on June 17, with the Championship set to follow suit on June 20.
With most domestic league’s yet to finish their seasons until late July or early August, the start and end dates of the transfer window are uncertain, and FIFA has moved in to settle those uncertainties.
FIFA has announced two important regulations changes on Thursday afternoon. The first of which will allow players to now play for three different clubs within the same season.
The second will allow any club that operates their season in a dual year, which includes all of England’s leagues, to open the transfer window before the end of the current season.
What do you think of this rule change?
