QPR, Fulham and Brentford are among the clubs in the EFL who will have their say on the summer transfer window later today at Villa Park.

The vote is to decide whether the summer transfer window should be closed earlier in the month of August, as opposed to at the end of the month.

The proposal is for the window to close at 5pm on August 9, while the loan window would stay open unti August 31.

Lengthy discussions were held in September about changing the date, and the 72 clubs in the football league will finally get to have their say on the matter.

QPR top the Championship table for late goals this season, beating the likes of Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Aston Villa to the lead

For the change to take place, a majority is needed of Championship clubs and all EFL clubs to vote for the change.

If the change is adopted, the EFL window would close at the same time as the Premier League transfer window.

Clubs in the Premier League voted to close the window early, with the window in the top flight closing two days before the start of the new season, meaning that the EFL window would close after the first round of fixtures.

The meeting will be attended by chief executives, chairmen and club officials.
