When does the transfer window close for Premier League and European clubs?

The coronavirus outbreak that began in March severely disrupted the football calendar, with all matches having been suspendedfor three months in order to prevent further spread of the virus.

The effects of thisin turn altered the nature of the summer transfer window, with the period for clubs buying and selling players delayed in order to align with the new start and end dates of the league.

So when does this year'ssummer transfer window shut? Goal takes a look.

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.

The summer 2020 transfer window also closes on October 5 in Germany (Bundesliga), Spain (La Liga), Italy (Serie A) and France (Ligue 1), meaning all of Europe's top five leagues are in sync.

There are slight variations in other European countries.

In the Netherlands, the summer transfer window closes on October 6, and in Portugal it closes on October 25. In Russia, it ends on October 17.

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.

This enablesclubs to complete the information required by FIFA's Transfer Matching System for obtaining international clearance for their players.

If a deal sheet has not been submitted in time, then a transfer could fall through.

The current English window opened on Monday July 27.

A number of high-profile transfers have already been conducted this summer, with Liverpool making moves for Thiago and Diogo Jota from Bayern and Wolves, respectively.

Tottenham completed the signing of former forward Gareth Bale on loan form Real Madrid, with Chelsea boosting their attack with the acquisitions of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech.
