Bun­desliga boss wants shorter trans­fer win­dow

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

The Bun­desliga looks set to fol­low the ex­am­ple of Eng­land’s Premier League by vot­ing to shorten the trans­fer win­dow, with Ger­man Foot­ball League (DFL) chief Rein­hard Rauball propos­ing changes. Ger­many’s 36 pro­fes­sional clubs are set to hold a vote at their gen­eral as­sem­bly in De­cem­ber and Rauball wants the Bun­desliga clubs to agree to close the trans­fer win­dow be­fore the sea­son starts. Last week, the English Premier League clubs voted to shut the 2018 close-sea­son win­dow be­fore the start of the 2018-19 cam­paign in a move that sparked ap­proval across the Euro­pean game. Now Rauball is hop­ing the Ger­man clubs will do the same. Cur­rently, the sea­son in Ger­many starts in midAu­gust and the trans­fer win­dow closes on the last day of the month, which can un­set­tle squads with play­ers com­ing and go­ing with fix­tures al­ready un­der­way. —AP
