Vice-chairman Karren Brady has revealed that West Ham United do not want another change to the Premier League transfer regulations.
Over the past two seasons, top-flight clubs have been forced to conclude their incomings before the start of the campaign, despite the majority of other top European teams continuing to have until the end of August.
There has been talk of English sides wanting to revert back to the previous rules, but Brady has stated that the Hammers will not be following suit if it comes to another vote.
Brady told The Sun: "Only clubs with a taste for brinkmanship would vote to return to the longer summer transfer window. The previous system, with a deadline at the end of August, was not only chaotic — it was misused by moneybags clubs who had three weeks to stress-test the squad and add a player or two if necessary.
"Some turned up right old pups, too, as is typical with what ends up being panic buys. That is why West Ham will be voting to retain the current Premier League transfer deadline date.
"I admit it would be much tidier if the French, German, Spanish and Italian leagues fell into line, but there is no Brexit-style bust-up going to happen between England and the Continental powers who, surely, will see the sense in stopping transfers at the start of the season because it is both fair and efficient."
West Ham currently sit in seventh place in the Premier League standings. body check tags ::
