Time is tight for sides looking to make additions in the January transfer window with the deadline drawing near.

It has been a relatively quiet window, particularly in the Premier League, where financial fair play restrictions have meant squads have largely remained settled.

But there has been late drama in January before, and with a number of open title races across Europe, a few top clubs could yet invest.

Of interest, too, will be the fate of those based in or targeted by the Saudi Pro League, with Jordan Henderson’s move to Ajax one of the highest-profile deals of the window so far.

Here’s everything you need to know.

When does the January transfer window close in England?

Transfer deadline day for men’s sides in England in Thursday 1 February, with the window shutting at 11pm GMT.

What about Scotland?

The Scottish window will shut half an hour later, at 11.30pm.

And the rest of Europe?

LaLiga’s window closes at the same time as the Premier League, which is midnight in Spain. Clubs in Ligue 1, meanwhile, will have an hour fewer to make their signings.

Business in the Bundesliga has to be concluded by 6pm German time (5pm GMT), and Serie A’s window an hour later.

What about the WSL?

WSL clubs had until 11pm GMT on Wednesday 31 January to complete any deals.
