Laurie Whitwell: Nathan Baker is understood to be en route to Bristol City to discuss a loan move, with the Championship club also set to sign Liam Moore on a temporary deal until January.

Aston Villa defender Baker signed a new four-year contract in July but will not get regular games with the pending arrival of Joleon Lescott, who is undergoing his medical at Bodymoor Heath.

Moore, meanwhile, a former England Under-21 defender, is also looking to get consistent action and would have found that difficult at the King Power Stadium.

Claudio Ranieri has preferred Wes Morgan and Robert Huth so far, with Marcin Wasilewski and Yohan Benalouane, a summer signing from Atalanta, also options.

Bristol City boss Steve Cotterill is looking to add a good number to his squad on deadline day with numbers fairly low and would welcome two Premier League centre-backs into his first team.

Moses has also signed a new four-year contract with Chelsea today

Sam Cunningham: River Plate playmaker Tomas Andrade has arrived at the Vitality Stadium for a medical. The 19-year-old went on a trial at the club last month.

Everton were interested in the player — Roberto Martinez is an admirer — and a deal did not look like it was going ahead at Bournemouth. But a serious injury to Max Gradel at the weekend meant Eddie Howe was keen to bring in reinforcements.

I understand Andrade would move on a season-long loan.

Tomas Andrade arrives at Bournemouth

Sami Mokbel: West Brom are interested in a move for Malaga midfielder Ignacio Camacho.

Tony Pulis is keen on loaning the Spain international, but Malaga would prefer to sell Camacho on a permanent deal as they look to boost their ailing finances.

Mike Keegan: Liverpool full-back Jose Enrique has some thinking to do after West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland expressed an interest.

No fees have yet been agreed and Sportsmail understands the Spaniard remains unsure about a move away from Anfield.

James Andrew: Australian international striker Adam Taggart has joined Dundee United on a season-long loan from Fulham.

Taggart joined Fulham from Newcastle Jets last summer – but did not feature in a competitive game for the Cottagers due to injury.

The 22-year-old seems to be some way down the pecking order at Craven Cottage with Ross McCormack, Cauley Woodrow, Moussa Dembele and Matt Smith all ahead of him.

Taggart will now have the chance to prove himself in the Scottish Premiership as he signs a one-year loan deal with the Tannadice club.

Meanwhile, Wolves defender Richard Stearman is undergoing a medical at Motspur Park ahead of his £2m move to Fulham. 

Undisclosed fee, three-year contract

Joe Bernstein: Bournemouth are having a look at Sunderland midfielder Will Buckley because their Ivory Coast summer signing Max Gradel faces six months out following a knee injury sustained against Leicester City at the weekend.

Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat is happy to allow Buckley to leave. Eddie Howe’s loan deal for Jonathan de Guzman rests on agreeing a loan fee with Napoli.


Dominic King: As it stands, Charlie Austin will be staying at Queen Park Rangers.

There has been interest in him from a number of clubs in the Barclays Premier League clubs but, with eight hours of the window remaining, it is understood that he will concentrate on spending the season with QPR in the hope of helping them return to the top flight.

If his situation is to change, Crystal Palace might be the club to pounce but, as yet, there has been no contact.

Charlie Austin is expected to stay at Queens Park Rangers

Joe Bernstein: The Victor Moses loan deal to West Ham does not affect the £7million signing of Nottingham Forest winger Michail Antonio. He is still on his way to Upton Park.

The Emmanuel Adebayor transfer less certain but given the striker’s history, that is little surprise.

Adam Crafton: Spoken to FIFA in the last hour, who have told us that the David De Gea transfer is a confidential matter. They did not, however, deny that an appeal had been made. It is understood United and Real will make it known that they feel the transfer should go ahead.

De Gea, meanwhile, remains none the wiser as to how this shambolic episode will play out. He is increasingly pessimistic, though. De Gea is due to meet up with the Spanish national team tonight at 9pm in Madrid and he is still planning to be in attendance.

Interestingly, sources close to his agent Jorge Mendes have suggested to me that Keylor Navas may have been responsible for dragging the dealings out on Monday afternoon. As Sportsmail reported, he was not desperate to join United and he only agreed to make the move once it was clear that he had no future at Real Madrid. His umm-ing and ahh-ing is said to have eaten into precious time.

Nonetheless, it remains the case that something has gone significantly wrong with the processing of the documents by Madrid or United, with the two clubs accusing one another. The blame game is afoot.

Craig Hope: Uruguayan midfielder Carlos de Pena is on his way to the North-East to sign for Middlesbrough.

The 23-year-old – who plays for Nacional in his homeland – will cost the Teessiders around £1.8m.

Boro have made a stuttering start to the Championship season and owner Steve Gibson – who sanctioned the ambitious signing of Stewart Downing earlier this summer – is determined to win automatic promotion to the Premier League.

The pre-season title favourites are currently sixth but have already dropped seven points after five games.

Mike Keegan: Aston Villa are close to completing a £1m move for West Bromwich Albion’s Joleon Lescott. The defender, who had a year remaining on his contract at The Hawthorns, has agreed a two-year deal with Villa.

Villa have also made contact with Crystal Palace over an unlikely move for Dwight Gayle. The Birmingham club are not thought to be close to Palace’s valuation of the striker although a new offer is being considered.

Everton are hopeful of securing the return of Aaron Lennon. Spurs had wanted £9m for the England winger, who was on loan at Goodison Park last season, but a fee of closer to £5m is expected to be nearer the mark for the 28-year-old.

Stefan Scepovic’s departure from Celtic to join Spanish club Getafe on a season-long loan deal is unlikely to be the last involvement of the Parkhead club in the transfer window before it closes at midnight.

The 25-year-old Serbia international, signed from Sporting Gijon on deadline day last August, failed to find a regular start at the club, making only one substitute appearance this season.

Scepovic has made 26 appearances for the club, scoring six goals and found himself behind Leigh Griffiths and summer signing Nadir Ciftci in the pecking order at Celtic Park.

Celtic announced his exit in a short statement, in which the club said: ‘Everyone at Celtic sends Stefan their best wishes, and hope that he and Getafe have a successful season.’

The Scottish champions are closing in on Inverness midfielder Ryan Christie and Croatian centre-back Jozo Simunovic from Dinamo Zagreb.

Caley Thistle have given Scotland Under-21 international Christie permission to speak to the Parkhead club who have agreed a fee for Simunovic, with discussions continuing.

Simunovic, 21, has eight caps for the Croatia Under-21 side and could be regarded as a replacement for Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk, who has been heavily linked with Southampton with the fee reported to be as high as £11million.

Elsewhere, there could be one or two new signings at Motherwell before the deadline passes.

Ryan Christie leaves Celtic Park after holding talks with the club

Elliott Bretland: Ramiro Funes Mori has signed for Everton today in a £9million move after watching the Toffees’ 2-0 defeat to Manchester City from the stands on Sunday.

With Funes Mori becoming Everton’s fourth signing of the summer, Sportsmail gives you the lowdown on the 24-year-old centre back.


Neil Ashton: Busy day of outgoings at Palace expected. Talented midfielder Jonny Williams is wanted on loan by his former manager Dougie Freedman at Nottingham Forest.

Freedman brought Williams through the ranks at Palace when he was manager and wants to take him to the City Ground for the season.

Watford are also in the hunt for Palace midfielder Adlene Guedioura. The Algerian spent time at Vicarage Road last season on loan.

Neil Ashton: Keylor Navas is devastated that his move to Manchester United as part of the deal to take David de Gea to Real Madrid is unlikely to go through.

Navas was about to double his salary by moving to Old Trafford – the keeper was desperate to move because of the big uplift in salary.

Simon Jones: Manchester United have swooped for another teenager after agreeing a fee for Newport County defender Regan Poole.

The 17-year-old is heading to Carrington now for his medical. He has spent time training with United and was the subject of a failed bid from Fulham.

Poole also spent time training with Liverpool earlier this year. He will have his medical at United shortly before agreeing terms. The deal could rise to £400,000 based on appearances.

Hull City offered Newport £60,000 plus add-ons for Poole who is still to sign a professional contract at Rodney Parade yet has been part of the club’s first team.

Newport have also had bids from Burnley 18-year-old striker Aaron Collins.

County are bottom of League Two with one point from five games after Saturday’s 1-0 loss at Plymouth Argyle, with Poole and Collins starting on the bench.

Collins, a Wales Under-19 international, has signed professional terms despite initially not being offered a scholarship at County in 2014.

Monaco striker Anthony Martial’s move to Manchester United will see him become ‘more expensive than Zinedine Zidane’, as reported by French newspaper L’Equipe.

After a stuttering start to the season, Louis van Gaal has made signing a forward his priority before the transfer window slams shut on Tuesday.

And it was revealed on Monday that Martial was granted special permission by the French Football Federation to break off from international preparations and travel to England to conclude a shock £36m move, which could rise to £59m.


Sami Mokbel: Important to point out, of course, that West Ham’s move for Adebayor will have to be a permanent deal should Victor Moses complete a loan move to Upton Park.

Premier League clubs are permitted to making two loan signings from rival top-flight clubs; and having already signed Carl Jenkinson from Arsenal, the temporary capture of Moses would use up their allowance.

That means West Ham would have to seek a permanent deal for Adebayor.

So, with that in mind, West Ham would have to strike a deal with Tottenham over a potential transfer fee.

Or, Spurs would have to agree a settlement figure with Adebayor over the remainder of his £100,000-per-week deal in order for the striker to be available on a free transfer.

Charles Sale: One deal expected to be finalised today is Liverpool’s Spanish defender Jose Enrique joining West Brom.

Craig Hope: There’s some good news for Newcastle fans, Jonas Gutierrez will be back on our television screens this season.

The Argentine midfielder – the man who kept the Magpies in the Premier League after twice beating testicular cancer – is set to sign for La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna.

The 32-year-old is a free agent following his release from Newcastle this summer and will now undergo a medical in Spain.

Gutierrez is one of the club’s most popular players of recent years and the sight of him back in action against the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid will certainly be a welcome one.

Laurie Whitwell: West Bromwich Albion are insisting Tottenham Hotspur cannot afford Saido Berahino.

Mauricio Pochettino wants to make a final bid for the England Under-21 striker but West Brom remain steadfast that only a significantly higher bid than their last will test chairman Jeremy Peace’s resolve.

Spurs offered a deal worth up to £21million for Berahino but West Brom were angered at the payment structure and the clauses which invoked the add-ons. Having brought the 22-year-old through the academy ranks they value him higher.

Tony Pulis has consistently refused to rule out a transfer and has targeted Queens Park Rangers duo Matt Phillips and Charlie Austin as replacements, however it is believed only a minimum of £25m would give Peace cause for consideration.

Peace is a fierce negotiator and would only allow Berahino, who wants to move to White Hart Lane, to go if the deal benefits West Brom. With Daniel Levy on the other side of the table it is a potential deal which could go right up to the wire.

Riath Al-Samarrai: Staff from top to bottom at Swansea would be extremely surprised if they get involved in any deals that affect the first team today.

My view is that they could still use a striker to cover for Bafetimbi Gomis, but Garry Monk says he will only ‘monitor’ the window in case a brilliant bargain comes up.

There is certainly no active and dogged pursuit of a target. The two players they want to shift are Dwight Tiendalli and Michu – so far there are no takers.

FIFA is understood to be looking into the details surrounding the collapsed transfer but it would be up to Real Madrid to make an appeal as it is the Spanish transfer window which has closed.

The only grounds for a successful appeal would be if the club could prove there was a failure in the administration involving the Spanish authorities.

Sam Cunningham: I understand Charlie Austin will not be leaving Queens Park Rangers in this transfer window.

There was interest from Newcastle, West Ham (we all know how that went), Tottenham and Bournemouth, but no-one wanted to meet QPR’s valuation of £15million for a player in the last year of his contract.

It now looks like he will let that run down and move to a Premier League club on a free transfer next year.

Unless any clubs panic as the deadline approaches having not got other targets, Austin will remain at the Championship club.

Sami Mokbel: Arsenal are actively trying to offload Mathieu Flamini today.

The Frenchman is surplus to requirements at the Emirates Stadium and can leave today.

His £60,000-per-week wages could prove a stumbling block towards his exit.

Galatasaray have shown an interest in the midfielder.

Sami Mokbel: Told Emmanuel Adebayor is ’80 per cent’ certain to join West Ham today.

As Sportsmail first revealed, the Tottenham striker’s collapsed switch to Upton Park was resurrected late last night.

And Adebayor looks set to complete his switch across London before today’s 6pm deadline.

This is, of course, transfer deadline day. And, of course, this is Emmanuel Adebayor.

Chris Wheeler: Manchester City got their transfer business done relatively early in contrast to the neighbours over at Old Trafford, but it’s understood that their £54million acquisition of Kevin De Bruyne prompted late interest from elsewhere in Jesus Navas and Samir Nasri.

Navas was the subject of a tentative inquiry from his old club Sevilla, despite starting all four of City’s opening Premier League games.

And Juventus were at the front of the queue if Nasri showed any inclination to leave the Etihad, where he remains one of the best-paid players, but there was none from the Frenchman.

So it looks like being a quiet day in the blue half of Manchester after Jason Denayer left on loan to Galatasaray following the £32m arrival of Nicolas Otamendi.

The other City youngster heading out of the club is forward Jose Angel Pozo, who has returned to Spain with Union Deportiva Almeria. Pozo, 19, has been with City since arriving from Real Madrid in 2012.

Riath Al-Samarrai: Sources at Bournemouth are far less confident today of signing Jonathan De Guzman than they were yesterday. Suggestions it might not be happening.

Dominic King: Everton have been forced to pay an extra £3.25million to complete the signing of Ramiro Funes Mori.

The Argentina central defender has been on Merseyside for 10 days. He flew into the United Kingdom on August 22 to undergo a medical and Everton anticipated that they would secure his services for £6.25million.

Funes Mori, who has been capped once by his country and is in the squad for the forthcoming game against Bolivia, also had to secure a work permit, something which Everton anticipated would not be a problem, given he is an international, had won the Copa Libertadores with River Plate and the size of the fee they had initially agreed to pay.

However, the deal became protracted and it had now transpired that Everton have paid an extra 50 per cent on top of what they had first agreed for Funes Mori, who has signed a five-year deal.

Everton will now attempt to sign the two attackers that Roberto Martinez wants to bolster his forward line but whether they will be successful remains to be seen. They have been linked with Tottenham’s Aaron Lennon.

Some poor grammar on that slogan though!

Joe Bernstein: Following the lead of Everton and John Stones, Stoke City aren’t going to let Jonathan Walters leave simply because he handed in a transfer request.

Walters, 31, is in dispute with the club because they won’t give him a new three-year contract and Norwich City have tabled a £1.5million offer.

But Walters still has 12 months of his current deal left and Stoke are in the mood to stand firm.

It seems to be a trend in this window that clubs are beginning to exert their own contractual rights rather than let players and agents dictate.

Laurie Whitwell: Huddersfield Town midfielder Jacob Butterfield is closing in on his transfer to Derby County.

A fee in the region of £3.5million is expected to see the 25-year-old switch Championship clubs.

Derby have been on the lookout for a replacement for Will Hughes after the 20-year-old suffered a serious knee injury ruling him out for at least six months.

Paul Clement has been well backed by the Derby board with seven recruits already brought in at a cost of around £10m. The former Real Madrid and Chelsea assistant has yet to earn his first win as a head coach.

Butterfield scored six goals in 46 games last season and has already found the net once this term in the draw with Brighton.

Derby sit 19th in the Championship and were knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Portsmouth.

CLICK HERE for the latest. 

Craig Hope: Newcastle United’s French youth international Olivier Kemen has completed his move to Lyon for a fee in the region of £1m.

Now Twitter would have you believe that the Magpies have just lost the next Paul Pogba, but from what I’ve seen of Kemen, the 19-year-old has a reputation which outweighs anything he’s done on a football pitch.

Potential? Most definitely. But there are serious concerns about his attitude and, at 19, you cannot afford to think you’ve made it already.

Sami Mokbel: Crystal Palace are showing an interest in Reading defender Michael Hector.

The Jamaica international has impressed Eagles scouts and the club are now ready to cement their interest.

Palace are willing to loan Hector straight back to the Madejski Stadium to get the deal over the line.

Sami Mokbel: Stoke look to have won the race for Crystal Palace skipper Mile Jedinak.

Watford and West Brom were also interested in the Australia international, but Mark Hughes looks to have landed the midfielder.

He is currently carrying a slight hamstring injury, which could cause complications with any medical.

Personal terms still need to be agreed and it is understood there may be a gap between what Stoke are willing to pay and what Jedinak wants.

This one isn’t cut and dried, yet.

Sami Mokbel: Cardiff have rejected a £4million offer from Wolves for striker Joe Mason.
The 24-year-old has scored twice for Championship side this season.

Sami Mokbel: It’s likely to be a quiet day at Arsenal, despite the club’s efforts to strengthen before the 6pm deadline.

They got a no from Real Madrid over Karim Benzema; they are likely to receive a similar response today following talks regarding PSG pair Edinson Cavani and Adrien Rabiot.

One move they are exploring is a loan switch for Dynamo Moscow striker Aleksandr Kokorin.

The 24-year-old was on a list of potential targets at the start of the weekend, and talks over a temporary switch, with an option to buy, have taken place.

Landing a centre forward is a priority for the Gunners today; they’d take a holding midfielder, too.

Sami Mokbel: Tottenham’s £15million bid for striker Cheikhou Kouyate has been firmly rebuffed by West Ham.

Spurs are desperate to add extra firepower before the transfer window closes, but have been told by the Hammers to look elsewhere.

Roberto Soldado has left White Hart Lane and Emmanuel Adebayor is also expected to leave on Tuesday.


Bristol City are close to signing Leicester City defender Liam Moore on a season-long loan, with an official announcement expected soon.

The centre-half played in 11 Premier League matches last season.

Sam Cunningham: To provide a bit more detail to the David De Gea debacle; incredibly, in order for the ‘paperwork’ to go through both clubs merely had to match nine steps online — using FIFA’s International Transfer Matching System — in relation to the transfer.

These include things like:

– The player’s identity
– The player’s employment details
– The agreed transfer fees
– Intermediary involvement

…And still it wasn’t done in time! 

Alex Song, who has rejoined West Ham this morning, was pictured with Emmanuel Adebayor last night in a picture posted on his Instagram account. 

As Sami Mokbel reported earlier, Adebayor’s move to the Boleyn is back on. 

Sam Cunningham: Glenn Murray is at Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium — which doubles as their training ground — having a medical ahead of a £5million move from Crystal Palace.

Riath Al-Samarrai: Murray pursuit has not been easy by any means. Bournemouth have already had bids of £3m and £3.5m rejected. Led to believe Murray’s signing will end their interest in Lewis Grabban and Charlie Austin.

Joe Bernstein: Interesting day ahead for Manchester United forward James Wilson.

He is with the England under-21s ahead of his likely debut v USA on Thursday but is on standby to make a loan move if Louis van Gaal sanctions it. 

Spurs and West Brom have been mentioned.

James Wilson may leave Old Trafford today, with Spurs and West Brom interested

Riath Al-Samarrai: The prospect of Kenwyne Jones returning to the Premier League in this window has just about vanished. I’m told Cardiff will start talks over a new contract with the striker today.

Good point by Joe Bernstein

Nathaniel Chalobah to Napoli,
Victor Moses probably to West Ham.
Just the 28 Chelsea players out on loan then…

Which leads me nicely to this feature about how Chelsea’s loanees are spread far and wide this season.

Chris Wheeler: Norwich will make a final attempt to prise Jonathan Walters away from Stoke but could face late competition from West Brom.

The Canaries failed with an improved £2m offer last week but Walters has submitted a transfer request in an attempt to get a move.

The 31-year-old striker was left out of Stoke’s squad at the weekend and has delayed linking up with the Republic of Ireland.

Stoke want to keep Walters but it is understood that they will listen to offers of around £3m.

However, West Brom boss Tony Pulis in the market for a striker with Brown Ideye moving to Olympiakos and Saido Berahino continuing to be linked with Tottenham, and could mount a late bid for a player he took to the Britannia Stadium in 2010.

Sami Mokbel: Crystal Palace skipper Mile Jedinak is likely to leave today.

The Australian has been told he only has a peripheral role under Alan Pardew.

West Brom, Watford and Stoke have all enquired over the past 24 hours; with talks with all three clubs to recommence this morning.

Laurie Whitwell: Jon Walters is edging towards ending his five-year stay at Stoke City but the club will only sell the forward if a bid close to £3million arrives.

The Republic of Ireland international handed in a transfer request on Monday to speed up the process after growing frustrated at contract negotiations.

Walters has 10 months left on his current deal and it is understood Stoke have offered a one-year extension with the option of a further season only if significant appearance conditions are met.

Longer-term contracts have been agreed with the likes of Charlie Adam, Glenn Whelan, and Peter Crouch in recent months.

Norwich are expected to make a third bid for the 31-year-old after having an offer of £2m rejected while West Bromwich Albion could also enter the running with Tony Pulis a big fan, having taken Walters to the Britannia in 2010.

‘I signed him and he’s a wonderful lad,’ said Pulis. ‘I’ve got tremendous respect for him as I have for all the players I had there. He’s had a wonderful career, he’s been fantastic for that football club – and they’ve been fantastic for him as well.

‘Stoke have given him the opportunity and the chance to show what he can do and he’s taken it with both hands.’

Walters scored 11 goals for Stoke last year and found the net against Luton in the Capital One Cup last week. But he was left out of the squad for Saturday’s Premier League game against West Brom.

Manager Mark Hughes said Walters was not included because of the contract distractions and is still in his plans this season.

But a transfer looks increasingly likely and national manager Martin O’Neill has allowed Walters time away from joining up with Ireland to sort out his situation.

Simon Jones: Chelsea are close to signing Nantes defender Papy Djilobodji.

The 6ft 4ins Senegal international has been courted by Celtic, Southampton, Newcastle, Leicester and Sunderland this summer but has been holding out for a bigger club.

Chelsea are pursuing various options as they look to strengthen a defence that has looked vulnerable in recent weeks.

And according to Nantes, Djilobodji is in London undergoing a medical before signing a four-year deal at Stamford Bridge in a deal worth close to £3million.


Joe Bernstein: One move you can strongly expect to be completed today is Dutch international Jonathan de Guzman going from Napoli to Bournemouth on loan.

The forward spent two successful seasons at Swansea City so has Premier League experience.

Another signal Eddie Howe is deadly serious about staying in the Premier League.

Sam Cunningham: Southampton are set to announce the signing of Virgil Van Dijk today.

The Celtic defender had a medical yesterday ahead of a move. The fee will be over £10million for a player Ronald Koeman keenly admires and desperately needs.

The message repeatedly coming out of Southampton is that Victor Wanyama is going nowhere, however much he throws his toys out of the pram. 

Sam Cunningham: Bradley Johnson looks like he’s on his way to Derby.

The midfielder, a stalwart of Norwich last season, has only started once in the Premier League this season.

Johnson only signed a new three-year deal at the club in February, but he wants to be playing first-team football and expected to be.

West Ham co-owner David Gold has announced that the club have re-signed midfielder Alex Song on loan from Barcelona.

Song, 27, joined the Hammers on a season-long loan deal in August 2014.

And the Hammers have again landed the former Arsenal player on loan from the Spanish giants.

Gold tweeted: ‘It has just been confirmed. Alex Song has signed a season long loan deal to join West Ham. Welcome back Alex.’

Porto have signed defender Miguel Layun from Watford on a season-long loan, with an option to buy him for £4.4m at the end of the current campaign.

The 27-year-old joined the Hornets in January and scored his first goal for the club in their opening day 2-2 draw against Everton in the Premier League this season.

The Mexican international said he hoped to break into the first team at Porto.

‘I am eager to start training, to be at the same level as my teammates and to fight for a spot in the starting team,’ Layun said on the club website.

‘The present is always the best moment, but I’ve definitely reached my full maturity.

‘Emotionally, I’m in a great moment and all that will help me with the best performances on the pitch.’

French sports daily L’Equipe reflects the sense of disbelief at the £36m transfer fee for Anthony Martial

No doubt that many of the day’s headlines will surround David de Gea and his stalled move from Manchester United to Real Madrid.

But we’re hearing this morning that, following a sleepless night for the keeper, neither club is confident the deal will go through today. 

The paperwork failed to arrive at the Spanish FA’s headquarters by the midnight deadline, with Real blaming United for the hold-up.

United for their part insist they sent through all the necessary paperwork on time and have the documents time-stamped by FIFA.

‘Ridiculous’ reads the headline of Madrid newspaper Marca this morning

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has completed his £12million move to Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen.

Hernandez landed in Germany on Monday afternoon having been given permission to leave Old Trafford this summer after failing to win over manager Louis van Gaal.

The 27-year-old spent last season on loan with La Liga giants Real Madrid and, despite United’s lack of striking options, was an unused substitute during Sunday’s defeat by Swansea.


Adnan Januzaj has completed a loan move to Borussia Dortmund after the German club beat Valencia in the race to sign the Belgium international.

The Spanish club tried to sing Januzaj on Sunday but were unable to get the deal done and he now completed a switch to Dortmund on a season-long loan.

Januzaj posted a picture with a Dortmund shirt on Twitter with the message: ‘Pleased to sign for Dortmund! Looking forward to new season.’


Adnan Januzaj has joined Borussia Dortmund on loan for the season

Sami Mokbel: Tottenham will make one final offer for West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino on Tuesday.

The deal looked to be off at the end of last week after the Baggies rejected a £21million offer for the striker.

But Spurs were working to resurrect the deal on Monday and will table an offer closer to West Brom’s £25million valuation in an attempt to finally get the deal over the line.


Sami Mokbel: Arsenal held talks with Paris Saint-Germain on Monday over Edinson Cavani and Adrien Rabiot.

Arsene Wenger is keen on the PSG pair, though a deal for Cavani looks unlikely given the complexities of such a high-profile transfer.

Arsenal have been considering signing a striker for much of this summer, and turned their attentions to Cavani after failing with a bid for Karim Benzema.


Edinson Cavani celebrates after scoring for PSG at Monaco on Sunday night

Simon Jones: Anthony Martial has arrived in Carrington for the medical ahead of his £36million transfer from Monaco to Manchester United.

The 19-year-old looked relaxed, sporting shades and an open-collared shirt as he was chauffeured to United’s training complex in a black people carrier on Monday.

United’s initial advances for Martial were rejected with Monaco demanding £58m plus Javier Hernandez before they then asked for Marcos Rojo.

The deal was struck on Sunday night and could rise to £58m on bonus payments, including in the event of Martial being named European Footballer of the Year.


Anthony Martial has completed a £36m move from Monaco to Manchester United

Simon Jones and Adam Crafton: David de Gea was left in limbo in the early hours of Tuesday morning as his long-awaited move from Manchester United to Real Madrid stood on the brink of collapse.

It is claimed that paperwork failed to arrive at the Spanish governing body headquarters by the midnight deadline for the transfer window in Spain.

De Gea believed that he had achieved his dream move to Real Madrid after the Spanish club broke the deadlock on Monday afternoon when they thrashed out a deal worth £29million.


David de Gea’s £29m move from Manchester United to Real Madrid is in serious doubt

I’ll be manning the fort here until about 3pm, when Dan Ripley will take over and see us through to the point this evening when the fax machine whirr goes dead and managers up and down the country take a step back and assess the personnel that will have to see them through until January. 

Throughout the day, we’ll have updates from our team of reporters the length and breadth of the country (and many other countries) to keep you right up to date.

And here’s the first update now…

Sami Mokbel: Emmanuel Adebayor’s collapsed move to West Ham is back ON this morning.

The striker had been stalling on a switch to Upton Park prompting the Hammers to look elsewhere, namely Hull’s Nikica Jelavic.

However, the move has been revived with the Tottenham striker now ready to commit to the Hammers.

Talks will resume this morning with a view to Adebayor completing a season-long loan deal before the 6pm deadline.

Tottenham want to shift Adebayor, who earns £100,000-per-week, out of White Hart Lane today; with the striker having no future at the club under Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs are willing to pay a percentage of Adebayor’s wages to ensure he leaves the club.

Emmanuel Adebayor’s move from Tottenham to West Ham is back on this morning

Good Morning and welcome to our live coverage of the bi-annual extravaganza of frantic negotiating, helicopter dashes and paperwork completion otherwise known as Transfer Deadline Day.

Between now and 6pm, when the summer transfer window closes, this really is the only place to be for all the rumours, player sightings, contract signings and done deals in the Barclays Premier League and beyond.

The fax machine has been dusted off and somehow still works, the helicopter has been fuelled and the medical team are on standby. 

Ready, set, go…
