Rovers will have until 5pm on August 8 to conclude their summer transfer business.

EFL clubs have agreed to a split approach for the Championship and League One and League Two clubs for the 2019/20 season.

Last summer, Championship sides had until August 9 to make permanent signings but were able to bring in loan players up until August 31.

However, this summer the deadline for Championship clubs for all incoming permanent and loan registrations will close at 5pm on Thursday, August 8.

League One and League League One and League Two Clubs will have until 5pm on Monday, September 2 due to August 31 falling on a Saturday.

The confirmation follows a consultation process with clubs, who voted their preference prior to a formal vote at last week’s Extraordinary General Meeting.
