The Premier League transfer window is closed and Spanish window will close after today’s evening. Thus, we are going to take a look on the 20 transfer deadline day deals which came as a shock and relief to the football fans around the globe.
Tim Krul (Newcastle United to Brighton)
Brighton failed to sign Tottenham’s striker Vincent Janssen as the club’s deadline day search for a striker proved unsuccessful. The Seagulls hoped to bring in Janssen, who Spurs bought for £17m last summer, on loan but the 23-year-old Dutch international turned down the move. However Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul did arrive on a season-long loan.
Mamadou Sakho (Liverpool to Crystal Palace)
Crystal Palace has signed Mamadou Sakho after they finally agreed a fee of £26m with Liverpool for the France defender on the deadline day.
Palace’s bid of an initial £22m plus £3m in add-ons was rejected earlier this week with Liverpool holding out for £30m for the 27-year-old, who spent part of last season on loan at Selhurst Park.
Aleksandar Dragovic (Bayer Leverkusen to Leicester City)
Leicester City has signed Bayer Leverkusen’s defender Aleksandar Dragovic on loan until the end of the season. The 26-year-old made 19 Bundesliga appearances last season and featured three times in the Champions League.
M’Baye Niang (AC Milan to Torino)
Torino has completed the signing of M’Baye Niang from AC Milan on a season-long loan with an obligation to make the move permanent in 2018 for a reported fee of €20 million.
The club has announced the arrival of the 22-year-old, who had also been linked with Everton and Fenerbahce before the deadline day.
Bojan Krkic to Alaves (Stoke City to Alaves)
Stoke City forward Bojan Krkic is poised to join Alaves on loan after dropping down Mark Hughes’ pecking order, sources close to the Premier League club have told ESPN FC.
A number of La Liga clubs have shown an interest in bringing Bojan back to Spain, but Alaves has won the race to secure the attacker’s signature on deadline day and will sign him on loan for the season with a view to a permanent deal.
Jadon Sancho (Manchester City to Borrusia Dortmund)
Jadon Sancho has become the latest young English player to move overseas after Borussia Dortmund confirmed the 17-year-old has joined from Manchester City for a fee understood to be around £8m. Sancho has been called as the successor of Ousmane Dembele.
Kylian Mbappe (Monaco to Paris Saint Germain)
Paris Saint Germain has signed Kylian Mbappe on a season-long loan from Monaco, with an option to make the deal permanent for 180m euros (£165.7m) as his contract will run until June 2022. One of the very best transfer deadline day deals for sure.
Benedikt Howedes (Schalke to Juventus)
Schalke’s 2014 World Cup-winning defender Benedikt Howedes has signed for Italian champions Juventus on a season-long loan. Howedes, 29, has spent his career at Schalke and was captain of the German club for six years.
Juventus said they have paid an initial fee of 3.5m euros (£3.22m) for the loan, which will rise to 13.5m euros (£11.96m) if he plays 25 times this season. They also have an option to buy Howedes at the season’s end for 3.5m euros.
Luis Nani (Valencia to Lazio)
Lazio has signed former Manchester United winger Nani from Valencia on a season-long loan. The 30-year-old joined the La Liga club in July 2016 on a three-year deal, scoring five goals in 26 appearances for the club.
Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal to West Bromwich Albion)
West Bromwich Albion has completed the signing of left-back Kieran Gibbs from Arsenal for £7m. Gibbs, who has 10 caps for England, has signed a four-year contract at ‘The Hawthorns’ and will wear the No 3 shirt.
Grzegorz Krychowiak (Paris Saint Germain to West Bromwich Albion)
West Bromwich Albion has completed the signing of the defensive midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak from Paris Saint-Germain on a season-long loan.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal to Liverpool)
Liverpool has completed the £35m signing of England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal. The 24-year-old, who rejected a move to Chelsea on Tuesday after a fee had been agreed, joins on a five-year contract worth £120,000 a week.
Chamberlain, who was in the last year of his Arsenal contract, rejected a new deal worth up to £180,000 a week to stay at the Emirates. A cracker from the Liverpool’s management team on deadline day.
Serge Aurier (Paris Saint Germain to Tottenham)
Tottenham has completed the signing of Paris Saint Germain’s defender Serge Aurier on deadline day for a fee in the region of £23m. The Ivory Coast right-back, 24, has signed a five-year contract until 2022.
Renato Sanches (Bayern Munich to Swansea City)
Portugal midfielder Renato Sanches has signed for Swansea City on a season’s loan from Bayern Munich. Swansea thought to have paid a loan fee of around £4m and will also pay most of the midfielder’s wages. There’s no option in the deal for Sanches’ move to be made permanent. A gem from the bunch of transfer deadline day deals.
Divock Origi (Liverpool to Wolfsburg)
Liverpool has announced that striker Divock Origi has joined Bundesliga side Wolfsburg on loan until the end of the season.
Belgium international Origi, 22, has had little game time at Anfield this season, making one substitute’s appearance for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Lucas Perez (Arsenal to Deportivo)
Lucas Pérez Martínez (A Coruña, September 10, 1988) will play this season in the RC Deportivo, on condition of ceded without purchase option. Lucas Perez has left Arsenal on loan to rejoin his former club Deportivo, the teams confirmed on Wednesday.
Davide Zappacosta (Torino to Chelsea)
Chelsea have been looking to add to their wing-back options all summer and have made a breakthrough on the final day of the transfer window with the £25.8m signing of Davide Zappacosta.
Fernando Llorente (Swansea City to Tottenham)
Tottenham have completed the signing of Swansea striker Fernando Llorente on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee on deadline day.
Premier League champions Chelsea had been close to a reported £15m deal for the 32-year-old, who played under Blues boss Antonio Conte at Juventus.
Wilfried Bony (Manchester City to Swansea City)
Wilfried Bony has returned to Swansea after a fee of £12million was agreed with Manchester City. City’s hopes of saving on Bony’s £120,000-a-week wages looked doomed when the forward refused to take a pay-cut.
But the deal was been resurrected after City slashed £1m off their valuation – and Swansea will now use that saving to bump up their wage offer to the 28-year-old.
City are desperate to recoup at least some of the £28m they paid Swansea for Bony in January 2015.
Danny Drinkwater (Leicester City to Chelsea)
Chelsea has signed midfielder Danny Drinkwater from Leicester City for £35m and no wonder they’ve filled the void left by Nemanja Matic perfectly. A good move and a happy one for Chelsea on the deadline day.
So, that’s all for from the transfer deadline day deals now but we will soon come back to you with all the details of the final transfers after the closing of Spanish transfer window tonight.
