Transfer news: Done deals during October, November & December 2020

Geoffrey Kondogbia
Midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia joined Atletico Madrid from La Liga rivals Valencia on 3 November

The transfer deadline for moves involving Premier League and EFL clubs passed at 17:00 BST on Friday, 16 October.

English Football League clubs were still able to sign domestic players, and Premier League teams could sign EFL players, until that time.

The first of two transfer deadlines for Premier League and English Football League clubs was at 23:00 on 5 October.

That was the final date for international signings or moves between Premier League clubs.

The transfer window in Scotland closed at midnight on 5 October.

The deadline in Europe's other top leagues - Bundesliga, La Liga, Ligue 1 and Serie A - were all on 5 October too. That is the date European football's governing body, Uefa, asked leagues to close their window by.

Players had to be registered for the Champions League and Europa League by 6 October.
