'Window' to shut at 5pm

Football managers and players will be given a night off on transfer deadline day after the closure of the window was brought forward to 6pm BST by the Premier League. The summer transfer window will close at that time on September 1 rather than the usual time of 11pm.

A UEFA deadline for Champions League squads to be submitted comes at 11pm BST on September 1, so the Premier League has opted for an earlier deadline.
