The South African Premier Soccer League has announced the transfer deadline is extended by two extra days.
While the long-set deadline is August 31st, the date falling on a weekend (Saturday) in 2019 has led the league to decide on closing the window on the Monday 2 September.
The confirmation as given by the league on Monday night, and just seven days from the transfer deadline. "This is to confirm the domestic transfer window will close on Monday at midnight, September 2," PSL communications manager Lux September stated via Kick Off.
"The reason for this is quite simple. The rules in the NSL handbook stipulate that should the last day of August fall on a weekend, then we will have the deadline day on the next available business day, which is a Monday.”
"That's basically what is going to happen. We will be here until 12 midnight,” concluded September.
Some of the biggest transfer deals that could happen involves players like Jeremy Brockie, George Lebese, Aubrey Ngoma (all Mamelodi Sundowns).
Meanwhile, league action is set to continue tonight with two games in Cape Town and Johannesburg. Kaizer Chiefs will visit Cape Town City and in the other game, Highlands Park will welcome AmaZulu to Tembisa.
Both games are set for 19:30 starts.
