Leicester City don't have long to wait until the summer transfer window officially opens as the club looks to be active over the next few weeks.

Brendan Rodgers has been open about the need for a 'healthy shake-up' of his squad over the summer window, leading to links to a number of players. There has also been players who have been linked with the exit door at the King Power Stadium.

"Now my job is to keep provoking and keep developing the club and the squad," the Leicester boss has said. "If players aren't improving and developing, then of course you need that healthy shake-up. We need to reinvigorate the squad.

"Nine of the 11 players who started at Forest (in the FA Cup) were here when I joined. For the squad to evolve and become better you need to add better players. The club have been super-supportive since I've been here.

"Money will always talk and Leicester have always worked that side of the market (player sales) very well. Players will improve and then want to move on, and when that happens the club will maximise what they can get.

"We can never be frightened to do that. If a player is ready to move on, you can get maximum value and then reintroduce hunger and desire from another player, hopefully you benefit from that. The club will always look to keep their best players and if it's not possible then you go into the market."

When does the transfer window open?

The Premier League has confirmed that the 2022 summer transfer window will open on Friday, June 10, this is in line with other European leagues. The window opens slightly earlier than other seasons due to the World Cup taking part in Qatar in the winter.

When does the transfer window close?

The summer transfer window will close at 11pm on Thursday, 1 November, which is again in line with other European leagues. Like last season, it means that the transfer window will remain open as the Premier League kicks off on Saturday, August 6.

Can deals be done after that deadline?

Yes, as long as a deal sheet is submitted in time, transfers can be fully completed a few hours after 11pm on deadline day. After deadline day, Premier League clubs must submit their squads of up to 25 players to the league.
