unless Boris asks the EU for an extension, something he has already stated he will not do.
According to the BBC's Katya Adler, that could not be an option anyway. She reports that the negotiating, signing etc were all done by the EU Commission. That is now finished. The only option now seems to be via EU national leaders. Who can imagine Boris setting up appointments with 27 heads of state, conducting 27 sets of negotiations and getting said 27 heads of state to agree anything?
Regardless of the current excitement at the prospect of the German lady heading up the EU Commission should remember she has to be confirmed yet and that is not certain.
As for the EU appointing a lawyer as head of the ECB... what was wrong with appointing an economist?
