Eriksen joins Brentford | Lampard takes Everton job | Dele heading to Everton | Spurs sign Betancur, Kulusevski


7:20pm: The window shut over an hour ago, but here it is. After Everton put in a deal sheet to extend the time to get it done, they’ve signed Dele Alli on a permanent transfer.

6pm: THE JANUARY WINDOW IS SHUT! Grab a drink and chill. But you know a few days will be coming through… 

5:45pm: Dan Burn is in at Newcastle. Solid pick up. Superb announcement video.

5:30pm: Our partners in the UK at Sky Sports are saying Aubameyang to Barca is done. But no official confirmation from the club. Tick tock!

4:30pm: Okay, 90 minutes to go. That’s right. 90 minutes. Dele Alli and Aubameyang, you’re on the clock!

3:59pm: There are rumblings that Chelsea are interested in Ousmane Dembele, but it may be too late in the day to sigh him now. Dembele is out of contract this summer though, so with Aubameyang arriving, maybe Barcelona will drop any kind of transfer fee to work out the numbers?

3:04pm: Here are the details on Aubameyang heading to Barcelona. Free transfer, but Arsenal will save about $33.6 million on wages over the next 18 months by letting Auba leave. But the Gunners only have Lacazette and Nketiah who can play up top. Big risk for Arsenal and Arteta.

2:35pm: Okay, this Aubameyang situation is escalating very quickly now (if only there was a gif for that…). Reports suggest he will sign for Barcelona on a free transfer from Arsenal and he will take a huge pay cut to join the Catalan giants. Wow.

2:10pm: It appears that Aubameyang to Barcelona could be back on after all…

1:46pm: Donny van de Beek is officially an Everton play. He joins on loan for the rest of the 2021-22 season. It will be intriguing to actually see him play in the Premier League regularly. DVB feels like a very good fit for Frank Lampard’s system. Mason Mount-esque?

1:15pm: Two intriguing reports out of Barcelona. First up: Aubameyang to Barcelona may still be on, according to Barca president Joan Laporta. Secondly: Ousmane Dembele has been linked with a move to Chelsea, but our partners at Sky Sports say it will be tough to complete this late in the window, especially as he’s out of contract this summer.

1:07pm: NO DEAL! Our partners in the UK at Sky Sports believe that Jesse Lingard will not leave Manchester United today. Newcastle and West Ham want the England attacking midfielder, who is out of contract this summer, but it appears he is staying at Old Trafford.

1:03pm: Matt Targett has signed for Newcastle on loan. A good pick-up for the Magpies, who are also about to add Dan Burn from Brighton. That is Trippier, Wood, Guimares, Targett and Burn through the door in January. Not Mbappe, Dembele et al., but some really solid business done by Eddie Howe.

1pm: Wrapping up a few more outgoings. Nat Phillips has move from Liverpool to Bournemouth on loan, while Bryan Gil has sealed a loan move to Valencia from Tottenham.

12:08pm: Okay, less than 6 hours to go. Tick, tock.

11:50 am: Tottenham have completed two deals! Juventus duo Betancur and Dejan Kulusevski have arrived to bolster their midfield and wide options. More details below.

11:25am: Looks like it will be a busy end to deadline day for Spurs, with Dele Alli following Tanguy Ndombele, Gio Lo Celso and Bryan Gil out of the door.

11am: To recap the moves today so far…

  • Christian Eriksen to Brentford on a short-term deal
  • Wout Weghorst to Burnley
  • Tanguy Ndombele to Lyon (loan)
  • Julian Alvarez to Manchester City

10:45am: Some of the details emerging about the Dele Alli deal are staggering. Just wild. Spurs will reportedly let him leave for nothing, and Everton will pay $13.4 million once he plays 20 games, and there would be other add-ons if Dele Alli hits his previous heights. Dele Alli has over two-and-a-half years left on his current Tottenham contract. Imagine this kind of deal being mentioned a few years ago?

10:15am: Oh, wow, this Dele Alli news is moving fast. Reports suggest Everton and Spurs have agreed a fee for Dele Alli and he will undergo a medical in the next few hours.

9:45am: Reports swirling that new Everton boss Frank Lampard (Lamps isn’t wasting any time, is he!?) wants to try and sign Dele Alli today. Working under Lampard be a good move for Dele Alli, right?

9:25am: Here is the latest on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and his potential move to Barcelona. Seems like there is still a little work to do, despite Auba being spotted out and about in Barcelona…

9:20am: There are reports circling that Jesse Lingard may be able to leave Man United today after all. Newcastle and West Ham are pushing for a late move. Intriguing…

9:15am: Manchester City sign striker Julian Alvarez, 22, from River Plate, which was expected. The young Argentine international will join up with City this summer. Check this graphic out, City fans. A rising star is arriving this summer. Who needs Erling Haaland…

9am: In non transfer news, Frank Lampard is the new Everton boss. Who could he bring in? What does he have to do to succeed at Everton? Perhaps he could sign Christian Pulisic in the summer? Just leaving that one out there…

8:20am: Our partners in the UK at Sky Sports believe USMNT midfielder Brenden Aaronson won’t join Leeds today, but the Premier League side want to sign him this summer. In the meantime, Takumi Minamino could come in on loan. Aaronson has got his hands full after the USMNT’s defeat at Canada which left them in a tricky position in qualifying.

8:07am: Some deals we are expecting to be announced today: Donny van de Beek to Everton on loan, Matt Targett and Dan Burn heading to Newcastle, Rodrigo Betancur to Tottenham from Juventus for around $27.8 million and Tanguy Ndombele heading back to Lyon from Spurs. This is a lot busier than we all expected! Better go make another pot of coffee…

8am: Some of the wilder deals which clubs are trying to get done on deadline day include: Luka Jovic to Everton on loan, Benfica’s Darwin Nunez to West Ham for $80 million (highly unlikely) and Aaron Ramsey potentially to Glasgow Rangers from Juventus…

7:40am: Things are starting to heat up in terms of outgoings in the Premier League too. Arsenal’s former captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be heading to Barcelona on loan. Auba has been spotted in Barcelona and reports say the deal is close to being confirmed, as Barca look to offload a few and bring in the Gabonese striker. It is ideal for Mikel Arteta to move Aubameyang on after his recent issues off the field, but won’t Arsenal be light in attack?

7:20am: We also have a contender for the best-ever video when it comes to announcing a signing. Seriously. Now, it takes a lot to stand out these days but hats off to the social media team at Burnley as the Clarets signed Dutch striker Wout Weghorst from Wolfsburg. Roll the clip. Genius.

7:10am: Christian Eriksen is officially a Brentford player! He has confirmed his incredible return to the game, and the Premier League, and has signed a short-term deal for the Bees. What an amazing story. Full details, here.

7am ET: Morning! Grab yourself a coffee wherever you are in the USA, whack Sky Sports News on via Peacock and why don’t we get caught up with the latest deals going on around the Premier League?

Okay. 11 hours to go. We have a few things to catch up on, early birds…
