The summer 2020 transfer window closes at 5pm BST (12pm ET) onOctober 5, 2020.
It had been pushed back a month from its original end date of September 1 due to disruption caused by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
There are slight variations in other European countries.
Clubs are granted a brief'grace period' of one hour following the transfer window closing - 5pm on October 5 - as long as they submit a deal sheet.
The deal sheet can only be used in thetwo hours before the deadlineand it must bereceived by the league before the deadline passes.
