Premier League Transfer Window Deadline Day Signings: Open Thread

Today is the busiest day in the Premier League transfer season as we’re on deadline day. Final transfers have to be completed by 6pm ET/11pm BST tonight. Instead of spending your day searching across the Internet on wild goose chases and poor rumors, stay with us here at EPL Talk as we scour the Internet to bring you all of the Premier League transfers as soon as they happen.

Plus, later tonight, the EPL Talk Podcast crew will be releasing a special episode of the EPL Talk Podcast, which will go into the analysis and news regarding all of the major transfers — discussing who will benefit the most, and who is going to be hurting after the window shuts tonight.
