Transfer deadline day review: Tottenham strike late in busy end to window

Tottenham's capture of Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest was one of the biggest deals to go through on deadline day.

Spurs conduct late business

Having sold Harry Kane to Bayern Munich, who were also busy on the final day of the transfer window, Spurs were in need of attacking reinforcements and Johnson had been on their radar for some time.

Tottenham finally managed to land the Wales international in the dying minutes on Friday for a fee in excess of £45million, becoming the club's ninth summer arrival.

Johnson has signed a six-year deal until 2029 and he will be hoping to make his debut after the international break when Spurs host Sheffield United.

There were also a couple of exits from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on deadline day, both loan deals, as Sergio Reguilon signed for Manchester United and Japhet Tanganga joined Augsburg.

Red Devils swoop for Morocco star

It was also a busy end to the window for Manchester United, who, having snapped up Reguilon on loan, also managed to sign goalkeeper Altay Bayindir from Fenerbahce for £4.3m and defender Jonny Evans on a one-year deal.

There was also still time for one last piece of business for the Red Devils, who were able to add Fiorentina's Morocco midfielder Sofyan Amrabat to the squad on a season-long loan.

United will pay an £8.6m loan fee with an option to make the deal permanent, which would cost £17.1m plus £4.2m in add-ons.

Amrabat had been a top target for Erik ten Hag throughout the summer and he will add some much-needed steel and energy to a midfield that has struggled so far this season.

Forest in seventh heaven

Nottingham Forest have a reputation for being busy during transfer windows, but they took that to another level on deadline day by bringing in no less than seven players in the final 24 hours.

Having sold Johnson to Spurs for £45m, PSV midfielder Ibrahim Sangare was brought in for around £30m and winger Callum Hudson-Odoi joined in a £5m switch from Chelsea.

Striker Divock Origi and Arsenal full-back Nuno Tavares both arrived on loan from AC Milan and Arsenal respectively, while midfielder Nicolas Dominguez signed from Bologna and goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos has been brought in from Benfica.

The seventh and final arrival was defender Andrew Omobamidele, who cost £11m from Norwich.

Nunes brought in as City trio exit

City managed to strengthen their midfield with the addition of Matheus Nunes, who cost £55m and has signed a five-year contract.

One of the biggest moves of the day was Cole Palmer's £40m switch from Manchester City to Chelsea, with the England Under-21 forward signing a seven-year contract with the option of a further 12 months.

Tommy Doyle has also departed the Etihad Stadium, although only temporarily as he will spend the rest of the campaign on loan at Wolves.

Sheffield United also managed to close out a loan deal for James McAtee, who will be heading back to Bramall Lane after his successful spell last season.

Fulham keep hold of midfielder

Fulham looked like they would be losing midfielder Joao Palhinha on deadline day after they gave him permission to travel to Germany to sign for Bayern Munich.

However, the Cottagers were unable to find a replacement for the Portugal international before the German transfer window closed at 5pm UK time and were forced to pull the plug.

It was thought this deal collapsing could end Liverpool's hopes of signing Bayern midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, but that move was completed as the Reds signed the Dutchman on a five-year deal for around £34m.

There were a couple of late additions at Craven Cottage to help bolster Marco Silva's squad, with left-back Fode Ballo-Toure joining on loan from AC Milan and Alex Iwobi arriving from Everton in a £22m deal.

Late moves provide thrilling finish

Bournemouth were involved in some late movement that saw them bring in Luis Sinisterra from Leeds from a loan deal until the end of the campaign, with Jaidon Anthony moving in the opposite direction on a temporary deal.

At the Gtech Community Stadium, Brentford signed former forward Neal Maupay on loan from Everton and he will be hoping to rediscover his best form with the Bees.

Crystal Palace also managed to conduct some late business with the signing of Rob Holding from Arsenal for £4m, the defender becoming the fourth summer arrival following moves for Jefferson Lerma, Matheus Franca and Dean Henderson.
