The January transfer window may still feel like a few months away but it will soon be here as teams look to add to their squads again.
The summer transfer window for Premier League clubs shut on Thursday, August 8 just before the new season started although players could be sold abroad until the end of August.
Trading will resume in the New Year with both
Manchester United and Man City expected to be active in the window.
But when does the January window open and close? Here is the information you need to know.
When does the January transfer window open?
Business will begin as the window opens on Wednesday, January 1, 2020 at midnight.
While it is unlikely we will see many deals formally arranged before Wednesday, some could be announced on the first day.
When does the January transfer window close?
The window will close on Friday, January 31 2020, but the time of its closure, which varies from year to year, has not yet been announced.
11pm is said to be the most likely time for it to close.
Transfers can be completed after the deadline as long as all the necessary paperwork is submitted in time.
What about the loan window for signings?
At the start of the 2016/17 campaign, FIFA abolished the emergency loan window.
Free agents are permitted to join clubs outside the window while there is special dispensation should clubs suffer a goalkeeping crisis.
