The FA is discussing proposals to move the summer transfer window to August until October.
The window in England is currently scheduled to open in just 10 days’ time on June 18 – but that is not expected to go ahead.
The 2019-20 Premier League season will resume that same week and will continue into July while the final nine rounds of fixtures are completed.
FIFA are set provide guidance on the parameters between which new windows can be set, and it is then down to individual associations to finalise specific dates.
The FA is also consulting with other associations across Europe and there is said to be some consensus over a deadline of Friday October 2.
