Transfers - December 2008

The transfer window is now closed for permanent signings and will reopen on 1 January 2009.

In the Football League, once seven days have passed since the closing of the summer transfer window on 1 September, loan deals are permitted until 27 November.

However, in exceptional circumstances, clubs can apply for special dispensation to the Premier League or Football League outside these times - for instance, if they had no goalkeepers available.

In addition, players who are unattached free agents, and were not registered with a club when the transfer window closed on 1 September, are able to join new clubs.

The transfer window does not apply to clubs below Blue Square Premier level.

Meanwhile, if an out-of-contract player under 24 (who has been offered a new deal but has turned it down) moves clubs within the same country, then his "old" club are entitled to compensation. If the two clubs cannot agree a fee, then it will be determined by a tribunal.

* indicates a move has been agreed which will officially become permanent when the window reopens on 1 January.
