Transfer window to open on June 9

In the Premier League, there's money for everything except workers
The sum spent was almost double the previous record of £225 million, with deadline day alone, January 31, seeing clubs complete deals totalling £150 million ($214 million, 172 million euros), also a new record for the winter window.
As this year's January transfer window is nearing its closure with just a couple of days remaining before the clubs can settle their transfer business, we take a look at the top 3 winter transfer signings of all time by some of Premier League heavyweights.
The most expensive move on the final day came when one of the Continent's most proven goalscorers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined Arsenal, who had been desperate to replace Alexei Sanchez, from Borussia Dortmund for a club record £56 million.
"Arsenal have tended to work to a tight budget under Arsene Wenger's guidance in recent years, Tottenham are trying to fund their new stadium and don't pay big wages to attract the top player and Roman Abramovich is clearly not going to put too much money into Chelsea's transfer kitty any more".
The transfer talks broke down in summer, but Jurgen Klopp finally got their preferred transfer target when Liverpool struck a world-record fee for a defender ( £75 mil) to buy his services.
Liverpool got in early to line up the costliest deal of the month, signing Virgil van Dijk from Southampton for £75m.
Swansea signed Andre Ayew from West Ham, reuniting him with his brother Jordan, West Ham then snapped up Jordan Hugill from Preston North End for £10m.
But Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez, speaking after his side's 1-1 draw with Burnley on Wednesday, said: "He is a player who can fight with defenders, challenge and score goals". Announcements continued to trickle in long after the 23:00 GMT deadline, with Eliaquim Mangala's loan move from Manchester City to Everton made public at 00:53 on Thursday.
German World Cup victor Mesut Ozil gave Arsenal a big boost by finally agreeing to a new contract that will see him become the highest-paid player in the club's history, at about £350,000 a week, according to the BBC.
This probably prompted each of them to make at least one key addition to their squads before the deadline shut on 31st January.
Not enough seals for Polar Bears to survive
While the decline has been easy to observe, the causes have been more elusive, given the remote areas the bears inhabit. The bears' metabolic rate was more the 50 per cent higher than previous studies had suggested.
Thunder G Roberson expected to miss rest of season
On Saturday, Thunder swing man Andre Roberson reportedly ruptured a patellar tendon, likely ending his campaign as well. Without Roberson, it'll likely be rookie Terrance Ferguson or second-year guard Alex Abrines getting more minutes.
