Premier League clubs are considering extending the transfer window into September, which could see a domestic-only transfer week could return this summer.
At Thursday’s meeting of Premier League clubs, Chelsea proposed the existing window be pushed back from June 9 to June 16.
This will see a week added to the August 31 deadline, to allow for deals between Premier League and EFL teams.
The move would echo what happened last October.
It needs club support plus FA approval, though it was well received at the virtual conference.
Another topic of discussion was rearranging the final three games of the season to prepare for fans’ return.
