FIFA will speak to clubs about extending the length of the transfer window to counter the financial hit of the coronavirus outbreak.

Owners, players and clubs are expected to take a significant hit after coronavirus led football across Europe to be paused and spending on transfers is expected to be reduced this summer as a result.

According to The Telegraph, there has been support from a number of chief executives to extend the next transfer window so that the money spent can help to get the football world back on its feet.

Clubs have reportedly informed the agents of players that they are currently in limbo and have no concrete plans for the next transfer window due to the uncertainty of the long-lasting effect of coronavirus.

The issue around loan player's contracts has also got to be factored in at some point, with Cardiff City and Swansea City both having a number of temporary deals on their respective books.

It would also be big for league leaders Leeds United and West Brom, who have automatic promotion aspirations, and who will have a great deal of planning to do for the top flight, should they get there.

An elongated transfer window - possibly until January - would allow clubs more time to complete signings but would also bring with it an over-arching feeling of uncertainty over squads during the playing season next term.

In England, football in the Premier League and the EFL will not be played until April 30 at the earliest but, with the government warning the peak of the outbreak is yet to hit, there is every chance the suspension of fixtures will be extended.

As a result, playing into the summer months is inevitable if the season is to be completed, which raises complications around player contracts and the transfer market, with legislation likely having to be brought in.

At this stage, the situation for both the transfer market and next season is unclear, largely due to the fact it is still not known when the season will resume or when it will end, with the focus orientating around combating the outbreak.

The next meeting for football in England is scheduled for the start of April and further news about the plans for the months ahead is expected afterwards.
