Zaha stays at Selhurst Park
Possibly the biggest coup of Deadline Day was done by Roy Hodgson. The former England manager has managed to keep his Ivorian superstar Wilfried Zaha at the club despite swarming interests over the course of the window.

Anchoring Zaha down to Palace hasn't gone down kindly with the player himself. Earlier in the day he handed in a transfer request, only for it to be ignored. Roy Hodgson has revealed that Zaha's "beef is with the chairman and owners of the club because he’s wanted to leave and they haven’t received the offer that they think is sufficient to allow him to leave”.

According to Sky Sports, one of the five players awaiting confirmation of their respective transfers is Belgian midfielder Dennis Praet from Sampdoria. Leicester are confident are confident of completing the £18m signing before the 7pm deadline.
What will Kieran Tierney bring to the Gunners?
For years Arsenal have been searching for permanent full backs. Since the days of Ashley Cole and Gael Clichy, the Gunners have been screaming out for a quality left back. Could Tierney be the answer?

An athletic attacking wing back surely can't go a miss in the Premier League. The 22 year old has already played over 100 games at Celtic and is heavily touted to challenge Andy Robertson as Scotland's number one left back in the coming years.

A total of five players have deal papers yet to be confirmed by the Premier League. Everton fans, could one of those players be Alex Iwobi?

Tottenham manage to close the signing of Argentinian creative midfielder Giovanni Lo Celso from Spanish side Real Betis. The deal for the moment is a season long loan with the option to make it permanent next summer for £55m.

Zaha latest
We reported earlier that Wilfried Zaha missed Crystal Palace training today - but The Athletic's Ed Malyon points out that there might not be anything in that. He wasn't expected to play this weekend anyway having only just come back from AFCON. Despite his transfer request yesterday, it doesn't look like that move is happening at this stage.
Mooy back to the top-flight?
More Reading news!
It's all happening at Reading today! 18-year-old forward Danny Loader is having a medical at Wolves as we speak ahead of a move to the Premier League outfit.

But they will be signing a Chelsea man...
Chelsea's Brazilian winger Kenedy, who spent last season on loan at Newcastle United, is reportedly set to sign for the Royals on a year-long switch. What a deal that is for the Championship side!
No escape for Royals outcasts
Chris Gunter and Gareth McCleary are both set to stay at Reading, despite training away from the first-team. The Royals have blocked any loan moves for the duo, according to, but there are no permanent offers yet. Still nothing on Liverpool midfielder Ovie Ejaria, either; he is still hopeful of making a move to the Madejski.
Setback for Wolves?
Boubakary Soumare, the 20-year-old Lille midfielder, is not interested in a move to Molineux, according to L'Equipe, despite Wolves lodging a hefty €40 million bid.

Mendes in Manchester?
Agent Jorge Mendes is reportedly in Manchester to seal a last-gasp move to United for Sporting Lisbon man Bruno Fernandes, according to Correio da Manha. Time's running out, but could that one get squeezed over the line?
No incomings for Premier League pair
Firstly, Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that Liverpool won't be making any signings today in his pre-Norwich City press conference.

West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini has also ruled out buying anyone else.

He said: "We have two players in each position. We have done what we needed."

More outgoings are possible, however, with Ryan Kent still searching for a move away from the Reds.

Personal terms agreed in the North-East
United's striker search struggling
And first up: Manchester United. With Romelu Lukaku departing for Inter Milan, Red Devils fans would have wanted a new signing to come and replace him, but that's looking unlikely according to BBC Sport. Their target Mario Mandzukic is set to remain with Juve, with his wage demands deemed 'excessive' for a 33-year-old.

Sheffield Wednesday considering defender
Jumping out of the Premier League and into the Championship, and Sheffield Wednesday are seemingly chasing Hamburg defender David Bates.

The Scottish defender, who was previously at Rangers, is of interest to a number of clubs according to The Mirror. 

Zaha movement

Newcastle United, who have already got themselves a new striker in Joelinton, could be bolstering their ranks with a former player. The Chronicle reports that Andy Carroll is an option after leaving West Ham United on a free. 
Afternoon, welcome to the final five hours of deadline day. There are still plenty of questions to be answered but hopefully, we'll be able to guide you along as things get slightly more chaotic. 
So as morning becomes afternoon, that is my cue to bid adieu. I hope I have whetted your appetite for this afternoon's assumed merry-go-round of action, and I leave you in the capable paws of Connor Bennett. Until next time.
Fulham keen on Reid
After their drop down the Championship last season, and after an opening day defeat to Barnsley last weekend, BBC Sport report that Fulham are keen on prizing Cardiff forward Bobby Reid before the window closes. With former club Bristol City also in the argument, the Bluebirds will want in the region of the £8.5m they paid to acquire his services.

Dybala plot thickens
I'm going to offer a crumb of hope to Spurs fans over the Dybala deal.

Stay tuned to VAVEL UK, where we will bring you the latest transfer news as it arrives. Our live coverage will pick back up at 7am (BST) on Thursday so set your alarms for an early wake-up call as we are in for a long day of twists and turns.
The clock is ticking...
It is expected to be a busy day on Thursday as the clock begins to close in on the 5pm (BST) deadline when the window will slam shut.
The Lilywhites have also been linked with Philippe Coutinho in a rumoured loan switch from Barcelona as the Brazilian is believed to want a move back to the Premier League but a permanent deal is a stretch too far for Spurs.
A busy day ahead for Spurs
Spurs are believed to be deep in negotiations with Juventus over a potential deal for Paulo Dybala. A fee of £64 million was agreed on Tuesday, however, the player’s personal terms are expected to be a stumbling block for Spurs as they were for Manchester United.
Maguire makes his 'dream' move
Getting back to the Premier League, Manchester United were reportedly interested in De Ligt but following his move to Turin, the Red Devils turned their attention to Leicester City’s Harry Maguire. After over a month of negotiations, the two clubs came to an agreement at the fee of £80 million.
Juventus secured their main target in Ajax’s Matthijs de Ligt after agreeing on a fee of €75 million for the Dutch centre-back. The deal was agreed on a five-year basis and add-ons of around €10.5 million are believed to be added on top of the transfer fee.
European giants spending big too
However, the spending has not just been limited to the Premier League. FC Barcelona forked out the €120 million buy-out clause to acquire Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid. Meanwhile, Atleti spent that money on bringing Benfica’s 19-year-old Joao Felix to the Spanish capital.
New boys making a statement
Premier League new boys Aston Villa have also spent big this summer, over £130m to be precise as the Villains have bolstered their squad with 12 new signings.
Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Manchester City, Sheffield United and even Newcastle United are just some of the teams to have smashed their transfer-records in bringing in their main targets but they are not the only teams to have impressed this window.
We have already seen some huge deals go through for Premier League teams in this summer’s transfer window and the spending is not expected to slow with some big money rumours circulating as we near the final 24 hours of the window.
