Frankfurt - The official transfer window will close on 2 September this season, not on 31 August as is usually the case.

The reason for the extension is that 31 August happens to be a Saturday, and so the next working day - Monday 2 September - is the day designated for the window to shut. This is in accordance with § 193 of the German Civil Code

The deadlines by which clubs must conclude any transfers remain the same: the Deutsche Fußball Liga GmbH (DFL) must be notified of a possible transfer and the player's name must be added to the official transfer list by 12.00 pm, with all contract documents signed by 18.00 CET.
