English football stalwarts FA are reportedly exploring radical proposals to extend the summer transfer window until the end of January 2021.
The duration and timeline for this year's summer transfer window, which is due to open on July 1 and close on August 31 is still under the dark with the events that have unfolded in the world of football due to Coronavirus.
There are no guarantees that this season will be completed by the end of June, a situation which would create major issues in the summer window.
However, Mail report that football authorities are considering radical plans to have one prolonged transfer window that would run from the end of the current campaign until the end of January - when the winter window would normally close - next season.

Premier League sides are bound by FIFA regulations on transfers, speaking on which a FIFA spokesperson said, "On 18 March the Bureau of the FIFA Council decided to establish a FIFA-Confederations Working Group in response to COVID-19."
He continued, "This Working Group will assess the need for amendments or temporary dispensations to the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players' to protect contracts for both players and clubs and adjusting player registration periods."
The spokesperson then concluded by stating, "This work has already started and will be conducted in consultation with all key stakeholders, including confederations, member associations, clubs, leagues and players."
