Premier League Summer 2018 transfers
The Premier League’s summer transfer window is open and will close at 17:00 BST on Thursday 9 August – that’s over three weeks earlier than usual. Under new FA rules, English clubs must complete transfer signings before the Premier League season starts on Saturday, 11 August.
The window opened on 17 May and the earlier deadline will ensure that clubs have a more stable start to the 2018/2019 season. They’ll be able to sell players until the end of August but all buying activity must be completed by the new deadline of 9 August.
Whilst the FA have changed the rules for all English clubs, FIFA’s official deadline remains Friday, 31 August and Spanish, German, Italian and French clubs can sign players from English sides until 31 August. The transfer window in Scotland also ends on 31 August.
Private jet charters
In our experience, demand for private jet charters increases in the last week of the transfer window, as football clubs push to get those all-important contracts signed before the deadline.
We’ve been assisting football clubs with private jet charters for transfer talks, medicals and signings for many years – and our experienced team understand the specific requirements of this type of charter.
By nature, these private flights are often last-minute and require the utmost discretion; as European charter specialists, we’re well positioned to react quickly and present the most suitable charter options at a competitive price. Very light jets or light jets (see our aircraft guide) provide a quick, convenient and comfortable way to move a professional player across Europe and back again within a working day – and we’ve been known to have a jet in the air within an hour of receiving a charter request!
