Sorry - relief a bit premature. Just to confuse matters further, the FA website says it's 5.00pm with them.

The Beeb say:
The transfer market is closed after midnight on Tuesday until 1 January.

I hope someone at the club has been on to the FA to get an authoritative ruling. It'd be just like us to come along to them at 6.00 tonight with a list of new signings to make all our mouths water, only to be told we're too late.

To make matters worse why did the Beeb say "The transfer market is closed after midnight on Tuesday until 1 January."

Well how long after midnight? - a week?

Premiership clubs have until midnight on Tuesday to make signings, and must register players by noon on Wednesday to make them eligible for Europe.


Ok - it's just IRN getting it wrong

From the FA website:

"The Transfer window will re-commence at midnight on the last day of the season (which this year is Saturday 15th May) and shall close at 5.00pm on 31st August. "

They have just said about the confusion on SSN. Any deal has to be dne by midnight tonight., but if they're from abroad and it involves work permits then it has to be done by 5.30pm today! OK?

Domestic Transfers (like Rooney to Man Utd) - Midnight tonight.

Cross Border Transfers - 5pm this early evening.

Dave Clark just said so.

Looks like if we're gonna seal an 'eye-brow raiser' it'll have to go through by 5pm.

At least by 5pm I can stop checking this poxy forum every five minutes hoping we have signed Zidane.

And by midnight we are on our own.

Was just on Radio One saying that for Payment transfers the deadline was 3.30pm, but for loan singings it was 12am.

This is the correct answer

Sky Sports News claim (in response to many email enquiries) that the definitive answer is 5pm for cross border transfers and midnight for transfers between UK clubs.
