The EFL have today confirmed that the transfer deadline for League 2 clubs will be 5pm on Monday 2nd September.

EFL Clubs have today confirmed their backing for a revised approach to the closure of the summer transfer window in voting through proposals that will introduce different transfer deadlines for Clubs in the Championship, and those in League One and League Two.

Consultation with Clubs has been ongoing in recent weeks and months, with Clubs giving indicative support ahead of a formal vote at an Extraordinary General Meeting, held earlier in May.

The amendments to the Regulations mean the following:

The deadline for Championship Clubs for all incoming permanent and loan registrations closes at 5pm on the Thursday prior to the commencement of the Premier League season.

A deadline of 31st August for League One and League Two Clubs for all permanent and loan registrations, thereby providing increased flexibility in relation to trading between Clubs in those two divisions.

Due to 31st August falling on a Saturday the EFL have moved the deadline to 5pm on Monday 2nd September.
