The mid-season Premier Soccer League transfer window has been moved forward to accommodate clubs competing in CAF competitions.

Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs are taking part in the CAF Champions League, with Orlando Pirates and Bloemfontein Celtic duelling it out in the Confederation Cup.

The first transfer window of the new season has just closed, while the second transfer window that was initially scheduled from 1 February 2021 to 1 March, has been moved to 18 January 2021 until 15 February 2021.

A statement from the PSL read: "The second transfer window of the 2020/21 domestic season will now commence on 18 January 2021 until 15 February 2021.

"Initially, the second registration period (transfer window) was scheduled for 01 February 2021 until 01 March 2021.

"The amendment was necessitated by the need to accommodate Member Clubs that have qualified to participate in the CAF Interclub Competitions and further to provide all Member Clubs and players with a degree of flexibility in the transfer market by enabling them to participate in the universal January window period."
