After a frantic morning that saw a number of deals lined up, deadline day has hit that awkward afternoon phase, though it promises to pick up massively later one again.

A large chunk of the reports this morning have turned into done deals – Wilfried Bony has completed his loan move to Stoke (joined by Derby goalkeeper Lee Grant), while deals to take Joe Hart and Samir Nasri also out of Manchester City to Torino and Sevilla respectively have also been made official.

Stoke have also confirmed the loan signing of Dutch international defender Bruno Martins Indi from Porto. His arrival has paved the way for Philipp Wollscheid to move to Wolfsburg.

In other news, Didier N’Dong has completed his club-record £13.6m transfer (somewhat lower than the initial reported fee of £17m, but a record nonetheless) to Sunderland, and Gokhan Inler has moved from Leicester City to Besiktas.

This afternoon, Irish international midfielder Jeff Hendrick has finally completed a move from Derby County to Burnley. The Premier League side had two bids rejected for the 24-year-old earlier in the summer, but a bid of £10.5m was enough to convince the Rams to sell.

Burnley break their club transfer record in the second time in a few weeks, eclipsing the £8m paid for Steven Defour earlier this month. Meanwhile, striker Lukasz Jutkiewicz has left Turf Moor to join Birmingham on loan.

In other news, the annual Chelsea loan exodus has seen Juan Cuadrado rejoin Juventus for a second year, having enjoyed a productive spell with the Italian giants last year. Cuadrado becomes the sixth player to leave Chelsea on loan today, and the 33rd to depart this summer.

The deal to take Fiorentina defender Marcos Alonso to Stamford Bridge has also been confirmed.

Adama Traoré has also completed his transfer, moving from Aston Villa to Middlesbrough for an undisclosed fee. One player set to leave Boro, however, is Adam Reach, the subject of a £5m bid from Sheffield Wednesday.

In other news, West Bromwich Albion are looking to sign Watford right-back Allan Nyom for £3m, and Welsh international Hal Robson-Kanu on a free transfer. Also on the way out of Watford is striker Jerome Sinclair, who is set to leave for Norwich on a six-month loan deal.

West Ham are trying to tie up a deal for former Liverpool and Real Madrid full-back Alvaro Arbeloa but his free transfer status means that any deal for the former Spanish international does not have to be completed today.


Jonathan Williams has completed a loan move from Crystal Palace to Ipswich, the fourth time the Welsh international has made that particular switch.

Still expected to move in the coming hours are the likes of David Luiz to Chelsea, Mario Balotelli to Nice, Jack Wilshere to Bournemouth and the club-record signings of Islam Slimani and Yacine Brahimi to Leicester and Everton respectively.

Tottenham's pursuit for Moussa Sissoko looks dead, however, unless something drastic happens in the next few hours. That being said, the French international could still leave Newcastle tonight after all...
