The summer window opens in England is set to open at the end of the season – though the specific date remains to be seen due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Players can be officially registered with their new clubs when the Fifa international window opens on July 1 – though Fifa guidelines suggest players joining in July will not be able to play for their new clubs during the current 2019/20 season.
