  • Denis Suarez joins Arsenal on loan from Barcelona until the end of the season.
  • Jonny Otto makes his loan move to Wolves from Atletico Madrid permanent for what is reported to be a club-record fee.
  • Marouane Fellaini looks China-bound, after Manchester United agree deal in principle with Shandong Luneng.

  • Miguel Almiron set to break Newcastle transfer record, with loan deal for Antonio Barreca confirmed.

Moving to Arsenal will not be Denis Suarez’s first experience of playing for an English club. Here’s a picture of him as a 17-year-old playing for Manchester City in a Dublin Super Cup match in July 2011.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has been talking about new loan recruit Antonio Barreca.

“He has the attributes, he has the quality and he has the characteristics that we look for. Now we must see how quickly he can adapt, but we will try to help him and if he can give us more competition in this area, and more quality in the final third with his deliveries, the only thing I can see is a positive.”

Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri is confident there could be players coming in before the deadline passes. Slavia Prague have confirmed permission for the Cottagers to speak to their defender Michael Ngadeu Ngadjui.


Newcastle announce they have brought in Monaco’s Italian defender Antonio Barreca on loan until the end of the season. They will hope they can follow up with the club-record signing of Miguel Almiron.


Looks like Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi isn’t going to be moving to Bayern Munich in this window. The Bavarian giants’ coach Niko Kovac said at a press conference this afternoon that there is “nothing more happening” on the transfers front.

Burnley have had a second bid for Birmingham’s Che Adams turned down, according to Sky Sports. This one could rumble on right up to 11pm and beyond.

Fulham have been given permission to speak to Cameroon defender Michael Ngadeu Ngadjui according to his Czech club Slavia Prague.

Gunners boss Unai Emery had this to say about the Suarez signing: “He is a player we know well and I have worked with him at Sevilla. He brings us quality and options in many different attacking positions, so he’ll be able to help the team.”

Croatian club Hajduk Split say Manchester City have signed 18-year-old Ante Palaversa from them. Under the deal, he goes back to Split on loan until the end of the 2019-20 season.

Michy Batshuayi is reported to be leaving Chelsea on a loan deal before the deadline passes. Any excuse to wheel out this beauty from the World Cup…..


Check out our video round-up looking at some of the done deals of the January window so far – and those that could still happen.

If Arsenal do get Denis Suarez over the line, they’ll hope he does as well for them as this Dennis did.


Southampton fans will need to buckle up for a busy end to the window by the sounds of it – here’s what their boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has said at his press conference today.


The English exodus to the Bundesliga looks set to continue – Sky Sports reporting that Arsenal’s Emile Smith Rowe is undergoing a medical at RB Leipzig.

Denis Suarez bids farewell to his Barcelona team-mates. Move to Arsenal inches closer.


An update on Aboubakar Kamara from our Chief Football Writer Simon Peach.


Peter Crouch is to undergo a medical at Burnley as he moves closer to completing a move from Stoke, PA reporter Phil Medlicott understands. Sam Vokes set to go in the opposite direction.

Crouch turned 38 on Wednesday.

Sky Sports News has footage of Miguel Almiron arriving at Newcastle’s training ground. Are Michael Owen’s days as the club’s record signing finally over?

Nottingham Forest have signed Pele everyone! Well, at 78 you can’t argue against his experience.

Something you won’t be seeing at the City Ground any time soon

It’s a different Pele, you say? And he’s not even Brazilian? Forest have actually signed 27-year-old Judilson Mamadu Tuncara Gomes, nicknamed Pele, from Monaco on loan. As you were.


Wolves midfielder Jonny Otto has made his loan move from Atletico Madrid permanent, the club have announced.
The contract runs until 2023, and the fee is reported to be a club-record £18million.

Manchester United have reached a deal in principle with Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng for the sale of Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini, according to PA Chief Football Writer Simon Peach. He has only featured twice for the Red Devils since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took interim charge at Old Trafford.

Fuelled by Premier League TV money, 2017-18 was a record-breaker when the summer and winter transfer spending totals were combined. What will be the final figure for 2018-19?

There could be activity at Spurs after all – but it may be a player going out. The Daily Telegraph are reporting that Dutch striker Vincent Janssen could be heading to Spanish side Real Betis. He has not featured for the Londoners all season.

It’s fair to say this deal went rather well. Can the Gunners strike deadline-day gold again today?

For any Newcastle fans who haven’t seen much of Miguel Almiron, here’s a clip of him in MLS action for Atlanta.

Quick blast from the past – 2011 was a deadline day in the classic mould. Fernando Torres joined Chelsea from Liverpool in a £50million deal which smashed the British transfer record, with the Reds moving for Andy Carroll in a £35million transfer from Newcastle. It’s probably fair to say neither deal could be judged as a success.

Deadline day is all about the interesting sub-plots. Could Tottenham go through a second successive transfer window without any signings? Fernando Llorente filled the Harry Kane void with his winner against Watford last night, but do Spurs need greater depth? And what will Mauricio Pochettino make of another window with no activity?

Birmingham striker Che Adams is reported to be on the deadline-day shopping list of Burnley, Fulham and Southampton, but Blues say the former Sheffield United man is not for sale.

The 2018 winter window began with Liverpool splashing out £75million to sign Dutch centre-back Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton, which looks like a bargain in hindsight. Here’s a look at the biggest fees ever spent by Premier League clubs.

Could Willian be on his way out of Chelsea? It’s being reported that the Brazilian winger could join Paris St Germain.

Newcastle could also be one of the more active sides on deadline day – there are reports they could smash their club record transfer fee by signing Paraguay international Miguel Almiron from Atlanta United. The current record signing? Michael Owen back in 2005. The Magpies have also been linked with Monaco full-back Antonio Barreca.
Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings is reportedly undergoing a medical with Aston Villa – the Cherries’ defence certainly managed without him on Wednesday night as they thrashed Chelsea 4-0.


Panic on the streets of London, panic on the streets of Birmingham…..
Welcome to PA’s Transfer Live page – it’s that time of year again. The trend in this winter window has been towards loan deals, with Gonzalo Higuain’s switch to Chelsea probably the most high-profile to be completed so far and Denis Suarez’s move to Arsenal from Barcelona all but there.

January 2018 was a record-breaker but it’s unlikely we’ll get even close to those levels today.
