League officials to discuss possibility of bringing forward deadline day of Summer window.
Premier League officials are to begin discussions over the possibility of bringing forward the end of the Summer transfer window, reports Goal.com.
Teams want the end of the window to be brought forward to before the start of the start of the season, as a way of maintaining the integrity of the competition.
The EPL has talked to the European Professional Football Leagues, to see if a similar view is maintained in other leading countries regarding the potential change in rules.
The idea behind the move is that all teams cannot make any late additions to their team five games into the season, which may give one team an unfair advantage over the other.
It seems unlikely that teams will vote in favour of this move, especially those who know that they can continue to make signings until the window closes.
With different leagues around Europe starting at different times, it would be highly unlikely that other countries will change their transfer window just so it benefits the English game. The other issue would be the seasons in which international tournaments are played, as it would reduce the window time even further due to player commitments.
While the idea is good, the logistics of implementing a system such as this may prove too difficult for it to be successful.
