Premiership and SPL clubs have until midnight on Wednesday 31 January to sign players. English Football League clubs have the same deadline for full transfers, but not for loans. English Conference clubs are not bound by the transfer window system.
After midnight on 31 January, Premiership and SPL clubs cannot sign any players, on loan or full transfers, until one minute past midnight on 1 July. This window will stay open until midnight on 31 August.
Clubs in the Football League can sign players on loan outside of the transfer windows.
Outside of the transfer windows, any club may still sign players on an emergency basis with the permission of their competition's governing body, ie the Premier League.
Players who are out of contract and do not have a club, can be signed at any time.
