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.
1345 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.
1215 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.”
Arsenal announce the signing of Denis Suarez from Barcelona until the end of the season.

Any excuse to wheel out this beauty from the World Cup…..

1028 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?
1025 Nottingham Forest have signed Pele everyone! Well, at 78 you can’t argue against his experience.
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.
0915 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?
Premier League clubs’ estimated total transfer fee spending (PA Graphic)0910 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.
0845 It’s fair to say this deal went rather well. Can the Gunners strike deadline-day gold again today?
0840 For any Newcastle fans who haven’t seen much of Miguel Almiron, here’s a clip of him in MLS action for Atlanta.
0820 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.
0805 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?
0755 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.
