VIDEO: Fans in stitches as Ian Holloway asks Nigel Farage to change the transfer window

Fans were left in stitches after Ian Holloway asks Nigel Farage to change transfer window in English football, there’s something we thought we’d never say.

The Grimsby Town boss has called for the current window system to be scrapped by the Football Association and will ask the Brexit Party leader instead if they don’t make a change.

The League Two side made six new signings in the window just gone, Bradley Garmston and Elliot Grandin was made on the final day.

“It doesn’t work at this level. We should never have to put up with it at this level, change it back to our rules.

“Now that Brexit has happened, let’s tell FIFA and UEFA we don’t need these windows.

“It doesn’t work in the lower echelons of the British game because we haven’t got the money the top lot have got, so let us go out and buy some milk and bread when we run out.

“I had no strikers the other week, because all three of them were injured. I can’t afford any more, can I?
