Closing the transfer window ahead of the start of the season is something Norwich City boss Daniel Farke would be in favour of.

Ahead of the English Football League (EFL) voting on whether to follow the Premier League's lead on the issue, the Canaries boss did add that he had some concerns about the potential changes putting English clubs at a disadvantage though.

'I'm used to this, rumours and some stress in August, so I'm used to handling it but I would prefer to close the window earlier,' Farke said.

'Sometimes there are really bad topics like a player doesn't want to play, so in general I think it would be a good thing to close the window earlier.

'But if in England we are the only country to do it like this then it could be an advantage to all the other countries.

'So I would prefer to do this in general, especially all the major European countries doing this together, but I don't think it will be good for English football if England is the only country who decides to do this.'

The chairmen of the 72 EFL clubs are due to vote on the issue at a meeting today.
