“When the 20 are playing each other [it was wrong] you could have a person in your team one week and be playing against him the next‚ or worse the player not playing because of speculation about him going to another Premier League team so he’s not available for a week or two of the season while the window is open.
“Those were the issues most of the clubs arguing in favour were using‚ that once the season has started we should know that we can’t possibly sell to another Premier League club.”
English clubs are still allowed to sell to other markets where the window is still open‚ but not to each other after August 9.
South Africa’s PSL have confirmed to this publication that they will keep the window open for clubs until the end of the month‚ sticking with countries like Spain‚ France and Germany.
Most PSL teams like to do their business early though and it is rare that there is a massive flurry of activity towards the end of the window‚ as has become the norm in England.
