MLS Transfer Window Start & Deadline

Considering that the MLS season begins in March and ends in October, it is not surprising that the primary transfer window lasts almost three months, starting mid February and ending mid May. Meanwhile, clubs can also recruit new players from early July to early August. MLS clubs are allowed to sign several designated players whose full salary does not count for the salary cap purposes, while they have a limited number of international slots in the squad as well.
