Championship Clubs discuss change to summer transfer window

Championship clubs will discuss whether to revert to a longer summer transfer window at the end of this season, reports BBC Sport.

The move comes after Premier League clubs voted to bring their window back in line with the rest of Europe.

For the past two years the top two tiers in England have closed the permanent window on the Thursday before the Premier League season starts.

The closing date for this summer's transfer window for the Premier League will be 17:00 BST on 1 September.

League One and League Two clubs are unlikely to be affected as they could still make transfers up until the end of August in 2019.
