When is the summer transfer window? Start date and deadline day confirmed for 2024 market

The 2024 summer transfer window is fast approaching with the opening date now confirmed.

The Premier League has informed clubs that business will officially begin on Friday, June 14 for what promises to be a fascinating two-and-a-half months in the market.

Clubs will have until 11pm BST on Friday, August 30 to complete their deals.

The relatively early date has been chosen to ensure transfer deadline day does not fall on a weekend but any shortfall will be made up with some extra days in the January transfer window.

The 2025 winter market will commence on Wednesday, January 1 and run until 11pm on Monday, February 3.

Talks between the Premier League, LaLiga, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and Serie A have led to an agreement on all five leagues closing their transfer windows on the same date.

Fans can look forward to a hectic summer of spending, particular in the English top flight which has historically topped the charts in terms of financial output by a considerable degree.

Kylian Mbappe is perhaps the biggest name on the move in the coming months, amid a likely free transfer to Real Madrid, but the biggest fee could easily be commanded by Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea target Victor Osimhen, Brentford’s Ivan Toney or Florian Wirtz of Bayer Leverkusen.
