The French Professional Football League (LFP) has announced the dates for the upcoming transfer windows for the 2023-2024 season. In a statement released on Thursday, the LFP confirmed that the summer transfer window will open on June 10, 2023, and close on September 1, 2023. The winter transfer window will open on January 1, 2024, and close on January 31, 2024. These mirror the dates for the 2022-2023 season, with other European leagues closing their window on the same day, albeit at differing times.
These transfer windows provide an opportunity for clubs in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 to buy and sell players, and make necessary adjustments to their squads both ahead and during the first few rounds of the new season. The summer transfer window is typically the busiest period, as clubs have more time to negotiate and complete deals.
The dates for the upcoming transfer windows have been approved by the LFP’s Board of Directors, and will apply to all professional football clubs in France, which means clubs in the top two tiers.
