Good evening and welcome to our live blog after another exciting Deadline Day with plenty of big moves completed.

The Transfer Window has now closed

A dramatic finish to a summer of big spending in the Premier League and beyond, as the transfer window slams shut for clubs in Europe.

Thank you for joining us this evening and don't forget to check out more from bet365 ahead of this weekend's football in Europe's top divisions.

23:00 - Brennan Johnson joins Spurs

Minutes before the deadline closes more late drama emerges in the Premier League as Tottenham Hotspur confirm the signing of Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest.

The 22-year-old Welsh international has developed into one of the brightest prospects in British football in recent years and makes the move to White Hart Lane for a reported fee of £47.5m.

Johnson came through the youth academy at Forest and has scored 27 goals in 106 appearances for the Midlands club.

He signs a six-year contract with Ange Postecoglu's side.

22:55 - Forest transfer Odysseys continue

In what is fast becoming a Deadline Day tradition, Nottingham Forest continue to add numbers to their squad in the closing stages of the transfer window.

Greek goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos is the most recent arrival at the City Ground, for a reported fee of £7.7m, from Portuguese side Benfica.

Forest remain in the hunt for yet more late signings, with a deal reportedly agreed with Norwich for defender Andrew Omobamidele in the region of £20m and PSV midfielder Ibrahim Sangare is also on their list for a £30m fee if Brennan Johnson leaves for Spurs.

22:50 - Luton land Lokonga

Newly promoted Luton Town have completed the signing of Arsenal defender Sambi Lokonga on a season long loan.

The 23-year-old made nine appearances on loan at fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace last season and joins Luton as they attempt to stave off relegation back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

Rob Edwards side are currently the favourites to be relegated with bet365 at 2/7 and are yet to gain a point from their opening three matches.

Premier League Relegation Odds

22:45 - Southampton sign Stewart

Ross Stewart has swapped Sunderland for Southampton in a deal believed to be worth around £10m.

The Scottish forward has signed a four-year contract at the south coast club, after an impressive Championship debut season which saw him hit 10 goals in 13 appearances before an injury cut short his campaign.

The 27-year-old has made two appearances for the Scottish national side.

22:30 - Amrabat joins Man Utd on loan

Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Sofyan Amrabat on a season long loan from Fiorentina.

United have the option to make the 27-year-old Morocco international a permanent signing for a reported fee of around £21m.

Amrabat, a defensive midfielder who came through the youth ranks at Dutch side Utrecht, impressed at the winter World Cup in Qatar as he led his national side to a fourth placed finish.

He adds much needed defensive versatility to Erik ten Hag's midfield as they hunt for a first Premier League crown in a decade. United are currently 20/1 with bet365 to win the Premier League.

22:15 - Barcelona confirm double capture

Spanish champions Barcelona have now confirmed deals for two Joao's, Cancelo and Felix, both on a season long loans.

The Catalan side are second favourites with bet365 to win La Liga this season at 7/4.

22:10 - Bella-Kotchap moves to PSV

PSV Eindhoven have completed something of a coup in landing German defender Armel Bella-Kotchap from Southampton.

The 21-year-old has been on the radar of the two German giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, but it is the Dutch side who have finalised the signing on a season long loan.

22:00 - Closing stages of the summer transfer window

Just under one hour remains on Deadline Day and time is ticking away for teams in the UK, France and Spain to finalise their squads for the remainder of the season.

A few deals still await completion, such as Manchester United's move for Sofyan Amrabat and Tottenham's late running saga involving Nottingham Forest's Brennan Johnson.

21:45 - Liverpool sign Gravenberch

Liverpool have landed one of Europe's most promising young players in the form of Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, who has signed for £34.2m.

The 21-year-old former Ajax man has penned a five-year contract at Anfield as Jurgen Klopp seeks more energy in his midfield.

Capped 11 times by the Netherlands, Gravenberch has long been touted as a star of the future. He moved to Munich from Amsterdam last summer for a fee of €18 million and despite not enjoying a overwhelmingly successful spell in Germany, he now has the chance to test his talents in the Premier League.

Liverpool will hope Gravenberch's experience of European football will help them in the hunt for silverware this season in the Europa League, where they have been installed as the favourites to lift the trophy.

Europa League outright odds: Liverpool leading the way

21:10 - Magpies to land Lloris?

Surprising news emerging from the North-East this evening suggests Newcastle United are exploring the possibility of signing Tottenham and France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Eddie Howe's side only have one recognised senior option in goal in the form of England's Nick Pope, and with Lloris searching for a new challenge it may be that Spurs will be happy to sell to their Premier League rivals.

Newcastle will need strength in depth this season as they tackle the Champions League for the first time in two decades, having been drawn in a exceptionally strong group alongside the likes of PSG.

Champions League group stage draw: Newcastle handed tough European return

21:00 - Celtic complete Bernardo swoop

Celtic have announced the signing of Portuguese midfielder Paulo Bernardo from Benfica on a season long loan.

The 21-year-old's move includes an option to buy as Brendan Rodgers shapes his squad ahead of the new Champions League campaign, where Celtic have been drawn in a tough group including Italian giants Lazio.

20:50 - Barcelona set to announce double Joao deal

La Liga

News from Spain now as FC Barcelona are expected to announce the double signing of former Premier League stars Joao Cancelo and Joao Felix from Manchester City and Atletico Madrid respectively.

Cancelo was a stalwart in Pep Guardiola's treble winning side before an apparent falling out with his manager saw him shipped off to Germany for half a season with Bayern Munich. 

Felix meanwhile endured a fruitless spell with Chelsea last campaign where he scored just four goals and struggled to make any meaningful impact.

20:40 - Schmeichel leaves Nice by mutual consent

Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has left Ligue 1 side OG Nice by mutual consent on Deadline Day, following an ill-fated 12 month stint in France.

The former Leicester City man, who won the Premier League and FA Cup during his time in the Midlands, is now a free agent and free to discuss moves with potential clubs.

Could a sensational return to now Championship dwelling Leicester be on the cards? His former side sit top of the second tier and are 8/11 to make an instant return to the top flight.

20:30 - Forest and Spurs battle over Chalobah

Following the collapse of his move the German champions Bayern Munich, Trevoh Chalobah is the subject of two bids from Premier League rivals Tottenham and Nottingham Forest.

As mentioned below, Spurs have seen a move for Chelsea's Conor Gallagher fall through this evening and could be set to revisit Stamford Bridge as they battle the Tricky Trees for the 24-year-olds signature.

20:10 - Conor Gallagher's Spurs move falls through

Frustrating developments emerging for fans of Tottenham as Conor Gallagher's touted £40m move from Chelsea looks on the brink of collapse.

The 23-year-old looked set to join fellow England international James Maddison at White Hart Lane this summer, but it appears the midfielder looks set to stay at Stamford Bridge barring any late developments.

Consequently, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is likely to remain at Tottenham as the club wont sanction his rumoured exit to Atletico Madrid without a suitable replacement.

20:00 - Quiet before the storm?

A slight lull in activity across the transfer market this evening as clubs wait for certain moves to fall into place, could we see a domino effect in action once the likes of Gravenberch, Amrabat and Johnson complete their expected moves?

In the meantime here is a round-up of some of the most recent moves in the EFL this Deadline Day:

Taylor Harwood-Bellis: Manchester City > Southampton - Loan
Allan Campbell: Luton > Millwall - Loan
Alex Bangura: SC Cambuur > Middlesbrough - £1m
Milutin Osmajic: Cadiz > Preston - Undisclosed
Nazariy Rusyn: Zorya Luhansk > Sunderland - Undisclosed

19:00 - Italian transfer window slams shut

Serie A

The transfer window has officially closed in Italy.

As Serie A sides finalise their squads, here are some of the most noteworthy transfers to Italian clubs this summer.

Giacomo Raspadori: Sassuolo > Napoli - €26.00m
Christian Pulisic: Chelsea > AC Milan - €20m
Ruben Loftus-Cheek: Chelsea > AC Milan - €16m
Ivan Ilic: Hellas Verona > Torino - €15.70m
Taty Castellanos: New York City > Lazio - €15.00m
Timothy Weah: Lille > Juventus - €11.30m
Houssem Aouar: Lyon > Roma - Free

18:45 - Johnson edging closer to earning his Spurs

Brennan Johnson is reportedly completing a medical in London ahead of a proposed £47.5m move to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Welsh international scored 8 goals in 38 games during his debut Premier League campaign and will hope to help Ange Postecoglu's side return to the Champions League next season, something they are 11/4 to achieve.

18:00 - Forest land Hudson-Odoi

Nottingham Forest have snapped up Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi on a three-year contract for a fee believed to be in the region of £8m.

The 22-year-old is a graduate of the Chelsea academy but has struggled to force his way into the first team picture at Stamford Bridge.

He currently has three England caps to his name and will hope regular first team football may draw the eye of Gareth Southgate ahead of next summer's European Championships.

17:30 - Jonny Evans returns to Man Utd

Eight years after leaving his boyhood club, Northern Ireland international Jonny Evans has signed a one-year contract to return to Manchester United.

The 35-year-old joined Erik ten Hag's side for preseason training and has evidently done enough to impress the Dutchman and earn himself a sensational return to Old Trafford.

17:25 - Bayern's moves for Palhinha & Chalobah collapse

Good news for Fulham fans as it appears Joao Palhinha will be staying at Craven Cottage for the foreseeable future. 

Reports are suggesting the Portuguese midfielder's move to German champions Bayern Munich has fallen through at the final stages, the defensive midfielder had been primed for a move valued at around £60m.

Furthermore, it seems Trevoh Chalobah will also remain in England as his move to Munich has also broken down. 

A disappointing double deadline day blow for the Bavarian club.

17:05 - Nottingham Forest swap Freuler for Dominguez

Who said straight swap deals don't happen anymore? 

Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Bologna captain Nicolas Dominguez on a five-year contract, with Swiss midfielder Remo Freuler heading in the opposite direction.

15:45 - Ansu Fati 2/1 to score 10+

We've seen how dangerous Brighton can be on the counter or when they're given any space to play, and with Ansu Fati's speed, he's sure to be amongst the goals on the south coast as long as he remains fit.

We've got the Barcelona loanee at 2/1 to score 10 or more Premier League goals this season, with 15+ 10/1 and 20+ 25/1.

15:00 - Brennan Johnson to Tottenham

Tottenham are closing in on Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest in a deal worth around £40m. It's a lot of money, but young, homegrown talent doesn't come cheap, and Ange Postecoglou will hope to take Johnson's game to the next level.

The 22-year-old has an excellent Championship campaign in 2021/22, winning Championship Young Player of the Season with his 16 goals helping to fire Forest to the Premier League.

He also shone with eight more goals to help keep the Tricky Trees in the top flight, and will offer plenty of versatility, capable of playing on either flank, up front, or behind the striker.

14:30 - Sofyan Amrabat to Manchester United

After getting so much of their business done early in the window, it looked like Manchester United would finally enjoy a peaceful deadline day, but the recent move for Sofyan Amrabat has dragged on.

United finally have their man on loan with an option to buy, and the Moroccan provides excellent depth in midfield for the Red Devils.

13:20 - Ansu Fati to Brighton confirmed

Surely a contender for signing of the summer, Brighton have secured the loan signing of Ansu Fati from Barcelona. 

Remember, this is the player handed the number 10 shirt after Lionel Messi's exit and looked like the most promising youngster in the world after breaking into the Barca side at the age of 17.

But having missed the best part of two years through injury, Fati had to compete with the likes of Ferran Torres, Ousmane Dembele and Raphinha for game time and Camp Nou last season, and the Spanish giants seem comfortable letting the 20-year-old regain form and fitness at Brighton.

12:45 - Liverpool reject Salah bid

David Ornstein has reported on Twitter that Liverpool have rejected an offer in excess of £100m for Liverpool's Mohamed Salah from Al-Ittihad.

Liverpool are now 1/7 to keep the Egyptian beyond the deadline and still be a Reds player on 3rd September 2023, and we've looked into Salah's future here.

12:00 - Joao Palhinha closing in on Bayern move

This would be a huge blow to Fulham, even if the fee is around £60m as suggested. 

Joao Palhinha topped not only the Premier League for tackles won last season, but all of the big five leagues, and the Portuguese will be nigh-on impossible to replace, certainly so late in the window, but it appears Bayern Munich have finally got the defensive midfielder they needed.

11:45 - Clement Lenglet to Aston Villa confirmed

After a loan spell at Tottenham last season in which he established himself as a regular member of the Spurs squad, Clement Lenglet is set for another loan spell at Aston Villa. 

Assuming Unai Emery sticks with his three at the back, Lenglet should provide cover for Pau Torres, Ezri Konsa and Diego Carlos following the season-long injury to Tyrone Mings.

10:45 - Matheus Nunes to Manchester City confirmed

Matheus Nunes arrives from Wolves for around £53m with Tommy Doyle going the other way. The Portuguese looked a shrewd signing for Wolves a year ago, capable of contributing both offensively and defensively, but going on strike to force a move, his days at Molineux were obviously limited.

It will be interesting to see how City line up in midfield this season with Rodri irreplaceable and Mateo Kovacic starting well in a City shirt. Phil Foden too has impressed in his role, leaving two spaces available for Jack Grealish, Julian Alvarez, Nunes, Bernardo Silva, Jeremy Doku, Kalvin Phillips, not to mention Kevin De Bruyne when he returns from injury.

10:35 - Sergio Reguilon to Manchester United

After letting Brandon Williams go on loan, Manchester United's only fit left-back was Luke Shaw with Tyrell Malacia suffering an injury in pre-season. 

Shaw then suffered a muscle injury which will likely keep him out for months rather than weeks. Diogo Dalot can fill in on the left, but the Red Devils were keen to sign a left-back on loan with the likes of Marc Cucurella and Marcos Alonso floated as potential names.

But it's Sergio Reguilon who arrives on loan until at least January after a season-long loan at Atletico Madrid last term.

10:30 - Tommy Doyle to Wolves confirmed

Matheus Nunes looks to be heading the other way, which is no question a loss for Wolves, but they've gone some way to plugging the gap with the loan signing of Tommy Doyle from Manchester City.

The 21-year-old has very few top-flight minutes to his name, but there are no shortage of Sheffield United fans singing his praises after his impressive loan spell at Bramall Lane last season.

10:20 - Alex Iwobi to Fulham

Alex Iwobi is closing in on a return to London, with Fulham set to sign the former Arsenal midfielder. 

Iwobi was signed for the lofty fee of £40m back in 2019, but has been one of the few Everton bright sparks in recent years, and in the last year of his contract, the Toffees are cashing in and are expected to receive around £20m.

It looks to be a very impressive signing for Fulham, who will need more creativity if they're to extend their stay in the Premier League.

10:00 - Cole Palmer to Chelsea confirmed

The Chelsea spending continues with the signing of Cole Palmer from Manchester City for £42.5m. There have been a number of eyebrow-raising transfer decisions made during Todd Boehly's tenure at Stamford Bridge, and opting to spend in excess of £40m on a player with just three senior starts to his name is another.

But the potential is most certainly there, and if Mauricio Pochettino can help the 21-year-old realise it, the £42.5m may look a bargain in years to come.

08:40 - Ryan Gravenberch to Liverpool

It looks like Ryan Gravenberch's move to Liverpool will go ahead later today with the Dutchman set to undergo a medical.

The 20-year-old was highly sought-after a year ago, but with a year left to run on his contract, Bayern snapped the midfielder up for around £18m and it looks like the Bavarians will more than double their money on a player who made just six league starts in his debut campaign. 

The talent is certainly there and we've seen how Jurgen Klopp can develop players, but it's unusual to see Liverpool spending so much money on a player so late in the transfer window.

08:30 - Good morning!

And welcome to our live coverage of Transfer Deadline Day! It's going to be another busy day, certainly in the Premier League, with lots of business to be done.

Manchester United are still pushing for key reinforcements in the shape of Sergio Reguilon and Sofyan Amrabat, while Liverpool are still after another midfielder in the form of Bayern's Ryan Gravenberch.

Fulham will be desperate to hold on to Joao Palhinha with Bayern keen on the defensive midfielder, while Brighton are closing in on a shock loan move for Barcelona's Ansu Fati.

Then of course, there's still the big question around Mohamed Salah's future. Liverpool have been adamant on not even negotiating regarding a possible for the Egyptian, but with the Saudi transfer window still open for another week, it's not impossible Salah leaves Anfield after the British deadline.

We'll have all the news and updates as well as the latest odds here throughout the day.
