The summer transfer window slams shut on Monday evening, although it will not be the last opportunity for Premier League clubs to buy players this month.

The transfer window closes at 11pm BST on Monday 5 October, which will see the deadline for most deals done.

This deadline also includes international loan deals, which must also be completed before 11pm on Monday.

However, there will be the possibility for transfers and loans to be completed between Premier League clubs and teams in the EFL – the Championship, League One and League Two.

A domestic-only window has been added from 5 October, closing at 5pm BST on 16 October.

During this window, Premier League clubs will only be able to trade with EFL clubs (either loans or permanent registrations). No transfers can take place between Premier League clubs in this period.

It is unlikely that many deals are done during this window, but it does give Premier League clubs another 11 days to fill any holes left in their squads from the lower league.

Across Europe, France and Spain have the same 11pm deadline on Monday as in England, however, the times differ elsewhere.

In Germany it is 5pm (UK time) and Italy 7pm, while in Netherlands it is not until the following day on 6 October, Russia it is 17 October and Portugal 25 October.
