In response to one of the most dramatic transfer windows in club football history Premier League clubs vote for the deadline coming before the start of the next season.
This very development comes on the back of a super nervy transfer deadline just in and around the international break which run from the 28th of August to the 5th of September.
The new rule will only affect the buying of players in the sense that when the early deadline is given, Premier League clubs will not be allowed to by players.
However, clubs will be allowed to sell or loan players to other leagues until transfer window ends in other jurisdictions.
The lower tiers of English football which include the EFL Championship, League One and League Two will also not be affected.
This means that Premier League sides will also be allowed to sell sides in the lower divisions until the EFL decides to follow suit with the English top flight.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Premier League Executive Chairman Richard Scudamore did say it had been a major concern for most clubs especially looking at what transpired in the last transfer window.
There was a manager’s meeting before the season started and with clubs playing three rounds of games with some uncertainty was quite discomforting for the managers in the English top flight.
They did feel it was wrong to as well have players featuring in games against their prospective future clubs.
The uncertainty also led to some internal shake up in various as clubs as players like Phillipe Coutinho, Diego Costa and Johnny Evans are example of players who have not featured for their clubs amidst transfer rumors.
Richard Scudamore also confirmed to Sky Sports that the decision however was not unanimous. The minority were those who believed the clubs were still limited as they could not replace those they could sell to other leagues.
