Premier League golf equipment can begin splashing the money on new stars from subsequent week, with the top-flight switch window set to open a month sooner than normal.

When does the window open and close?

Like the Premier League, the EFL window shuts on August 9 at 5pm - five days after the new season kicks off.

In theory, Chelsea could sign Lionel Messi this Thursday and field him in the FA Cup final at the weekend.

That means domestic transfers can be completed from midnight on May 17, but transfers from overseas can only be finalised once the FIFA Transfer Matching System (TMS) opens at midnight on June 8.

Several managers have complained in the past about the disruption caused in the opening few weeks of the season by transfer business as players would often become unsettled by focusing on potential moves over winning games.

What are the transfer windows like in other leagues?

In Italy and Germany it will be on July 1 and in Spain it will be on July 2.

All four leagues will close on August 31.

The EFL transfer window is already open.

The EFL transfer window opened on May 7.

Will Nuno's Wolves make any big signings as they return to the Premier League?

That deadline only relates to buying players and the selling or loaning of players will still be able to take place up until August 31 - the deadline for the remainder of Europe. They will still be able to loan players and register players that are free agents up until August 31, 2018.
