The Best Out of Contract Players this Summer!

It's all change with the Premier League transfer window this year as it opens and closes earlier than before.

The new dates are to ensure that all transfers are completed before the start of the 2018/19 season.

The Premier Leagu transfer window is now open. lt did so at midnight on 17th May.

It will then close at 5pm on 9th August - instead of 31st August, which it has been in previous years.

The reason for the changes to the transfer window are so clubs avoid disruption to their squads once the Premier League season has kicked off on 11th August.

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

In France, the transfer window will open on 9th June. In Italy and Germany it will be on 1st July and in Spain it will be on 2nd July.
The windows in those four leagues will close on 31st August.

The EFL transfer window is already open.
It opened on Monday, 7th May for domestic transfers. Clubs involved in play-offs can sign players now - but cannot play them until their season is over.

The EFL window closes at the same time as the Premier League, at 5pm on 9th August - five days after the new EFL season begins.

EFL clubs will still be able to sign players on loan until 31st August. They can also sign free agents up until the same date.

A look at the list of players nearing the ends of their contracts across Europe raises the possibility of many intriguing deals!

# Here I take a look at a selection of the players whose current deals are due to expire on 30th June 2018!

* Obviously some of these players may have already agreed new terms/contract with their current club or a deal is in place for them to join another Club, but as I write these players are 'officially' out of contract at the end of next month.
