Trent call-up, transfer dates confirmed & Mount talk – Latest LFC News

There has been plenty going on the world of Liverpool as the Reds continue to prepare for Southampton.


When the madness will begin, if it hasn’t already

The Premier League has confirmed the dates for next season’s transfer windows, with clubs able to officially sign players from June 14 – the closing date is on September 1.

To go all Jim White on you, the window will ‘slam shut’ at 11pm that night and won’t open again until January 1, when clubs will be able to sign players for a month like usual.

Liverpool will hope to get their business done as close to June 14 as possible, in order to allow incomers to integrate properly ahead of the new season.

Jorg Schmadtke’s impending appointment as a sporting director of sorts will boost Liverpool’s activity and should get deals done quicker.

Journalist Florian Plettenberg reported that Schmadtke would be “mainly focused on the German market,” leading to speculation about Liverpool’s targets in Germany.
