Today there was a vote at a Football League AGM to discuss the transfer window and whether it would shut earlier due to clubs complaining about disruption to squads after the summer.

The result of today`s vote, means the window will now close for permanent transfers from another club on Thursday, August 9, at 5pm. This is aligned with the decision the Premier League opted to take in September 2017.

In addition, EFL Clubs will still be able to:

Sign players on Standard Loan up to August 31.
Sign players on Standard Loan up to August 31, with an option to agree a permanent transfer when the next window opens.
Register players who ceased to be registered with a club during the period up until the August 31.
Transfer players OUT to a club in any league whose window is still open.

Is this a good move by the EFL? Head over to our Twitter and Facebook page and give us your opinion.
