With the elongated transfer window now close to shutting, we have all the information you require about deadline day, the extra EFL window, and squad list details for the Premier League and Champions League…
When does the transfer window close?
In England and Scotland, the transfer window shuts at 11pm on Monday 5 October.
What about the extra EFL window?
There is a second deadline for domestic transfers in England, 5pm on Friday 16 October. This will be for loans or permanent transfers between Premier League and EFL clubs. No transfers can take place between Premier League clubs or with foreign clubs in this additional period.
When does the transfer window close in Spain, Italy, Germany and France?
All of the other major European leagues’ transfer windows close on Monday 5 October, although not all at the same time.
La Liga and Ligue 1’s transfer windows shut at 11pm.
Serie A’s closes at 7pm, while the Bundesliga’s transfer window ends at 5pm.
What are the Premier League squad list rules?
The window’s closure means squad lists must be submitted . Premier League clubs may register 25 over-21 first team players, of whom a minimum of eight should be homegrown.
In this instance, homegrown is defined as someone of any nationality who was 21 or older on 1 January 2021 and spent three years between the ages of 16 and 21 attached to an English league team. Coaches can supplement the squad with any number of under-21 players whatever their country of birth.
What are the Champions League squad list rules?
For the Champions League, each competing club has to submit List A of their playing staff by midnight on 6 October. This comprises up to 25 players with a minimum of eight locally-trained players, of whom four must have come through the club’s own ranks between the ages of 15 and 21.
Any shortfall in those eight reduces the overall number available, and UEFA have announced five substitutions will be permitted this season, increasing the number of players selected for a matchday squad to 23.
List B, made up of players aged 21 or younger with two years’ training at their club, can still be updated at any time up to midnight before a match.
