2022 Football Transfers: Summer signings tracker originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The longest transfer window of the calendar year is underway, and with it comes a lot of excitement.

After a year spent figuring out the strengths and weaknesses of the squad thanks to the January transfer window, clubs now have a lot more time to scout and negotiate with players who could strengthen the squad.

So which players are traveling to another club? Here’s everything you need to know about the transfer window and major league deals:

What is the transfer window?

Unlike the NBA, NFL, MLB, and NHL, acquiring new talent for football clubs works a little differently. The summer transfer window usually lasts from mid-June to September 1, depending on the league.

During this period, clubs try to acquire players from another club through a transfer fee, loan or loan-to-buy option. A transfer fee indicates a permanent change of club, while a loan is basically a club borrowing a player for a short term (summer to January or January to summer), a full year or two years. complete. Transfer fees are agreed between clubs, which are separate from the contract the club pays the player to have them on the team’s books.

A loan-to-buy option allows teams to agree on a fixed price that would allow the borrowing club to enter into a permanent deal on the player after the loan term ends. Another option is a free transfer. When a player’s contract expires that summer and no extension has been agreed, another club can step in and sign that player to a new contract without paying a transfer fee to the parent club.

How many transfer windows are there?

There are two transfer windows in total. In addition to the summer one, there is also the January transfer window which allows for mid-season acquisitions, although this is a time when fewer deals are made due to match scheduling, travel and other obstacles that make negotiations more difficult.

MLS, however, has its season at a different time than Europe’s major leagues. MLS also has two transfer windows: the main window which ran from February 10 to May 4 and the secondary window which will begin in July.

When does the transfer window open?

All major leagues have varying transfer window opening dates, although deals have already been officially confirmed by some clubs. The deals won’t be confirmed by the leagues until July 1. Here is the official opening date of the transfer window for the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and Ligue 1:

  • Premier League: opens June 10 and ends September 1 at 6 p.m. ET

  • La Liga: Opens July 1 and ends September 1 at 6 p.m. ET

  • Serie A: Opens July 1 and ends September 1

  • Bundesliga: Opens July 1 and ends September 1 at 12 p.m. ET

  • Ligue 1: starts June 10 and ends September 1 at 6 p.m. ET

As mentioned above, MLS has a secondary summer transfer window that runs from July 7 to August 4, with the regular season ending on October 9.
