When does the January transfer window close? Date and time for Premier League and EFL
No one wants to be shocked by the unexpected arrival of transfer deadline day, like a sex toy hitting the back of a reporter's head.
Thankfully, like Harry Redknapp winding down a car door window, we are prepared for all your questions.
So, scroll down, and prepare yourself for a window full of panic buys and commercially-motivated moves.
When is the January transfer window open?
Right now. It opened on New Year's Day. The chaos began with West Ham signing of Samir Nasri on a free and Christian Pulisic heading to Chelsea.
When is deadline day?
The transfer window will close at 11pm on 31 January 2019. This will be the latest that English and Scottish clubs can sign talent from other sides.
What about free agents, loans and sales?
Free agents can join clubs outside the transfer window. There are special rules to allow clubs to acquire a goalkeeper, should all professional goalkeepers in a squad be rendered unavailable through injury or other reasons – although this rarely occurs.
Loans must be finalised within the transfer window and due to the scrapping of the EFL's 'emergency loan' windows in 2016, under pressure from Fifa, this is the case for all divisions in the football leagues in England and Scotland.
In terms of sales, players cannot be sold to other clubs in England and Scotland due to the window. As for players heading overseas…
