Birmingham City have given key transfer window details ahead of their summer rebuild

The transfer window will officially open in mid-June and close at the end of August.

The EFL has confirmed the start and end of the summer transfer window, where Birmingham City will be extremely busy following their relegation from the Championship. The Blues will start next season in League One for the first time in three decades and a new squad needs to be built.

The Blues will be able to sign players from June 14, and the window closes on Friday, August 30 at 11pm. Summer windows in recent years have reached as far as September, but that won’t be the case in 2024.

The winter transfer window will stretch, however, until February. The Blues will be allowed to sign players from 1 January until 11pm on Monday 3 February 2025.

The Blues are expected to reveal their retained list by the end of the week. Eight senior players are out of contract at St Andrew’s following a disappointing 2023/24 campaign.

Decisions are to be confirmed on the futures of John Ruddy, Neil Etheridge, Marc Roberts, Gary Gardner, Ivan Sunjic, Keshi Anderson, Lukas Jutkiewicz and Scott Hogan. The Blues have already lost loanees Jay Stansfield, Cody Drameh, Emanuel Aiwu, Andre Dozzell and Oliver Burke.
