With a scramble for transfers expected to take place as the August transfer window closes at midnight on 31 August, the man in charge of FIFA’s Transfer Matching System (TMS), Mark Goddard, explained to FIFA.com how the process works, with specific reference to how younger players are protected under the new practice.

Back in 2007, FIFA received information that Danish club FC Midtjylland were regularly registering players under the age of 18 from Nigeria and opened an investigation into the matter. These investigations found the claims to be correct. FIFA set about issuing strong warnings to the Danish FA and the club for infringing the Regulations for the Status and Transfer of Players, relating to the protection of minors.
