Transfer deadline day has often been one of the most exciting days of the season. Watching the clubs reacting to poor business in the summer and less than decent starts to the season can see last minute panic signings.
A few deals went through yesterday including.
Manchester United did last minute shopping this time last year and based on the opening 4 fixtures of this season really need to do so again. The signing of Radamel Falcao was an exciting one last year but didn't work out with the player looking less than one we knew. With Thomas Muller , Neymar and Gareth Bale not going anywhere the club signed the Monaco forward in a £36M pound deal.
David De Gea has finally left and Navas has arrived as part of the deal.
Liverpool have accepted a £10M bid from Sunderland. Borini really doesn't look like getting a look in at Liverpool now so that price seems a good deal for the reds. He made an impact in the black cats side previously and will likely go straight into their starting 11.
Newcastle have made an £7M bid for Hamburg forward Lasogga. The former Germany under 21 player has scored 17 goals in 46 for the Bundesliga side.
With West Ham United looking a little light in the forward positions manager Slaven Bilic has bought a familiar face in Jelavic into the Hammers. They worked together when Bilic managed the international side and it looks a deal that suits all parties.
With Chelsea conceding at least 2 goals per game and Everton playing very hard ball over John Stones the champions have moved to £4M pound move for Nante defender Papy.
Bournemouth play nice attacking football but as Queens Park Rangers and Charlie Austin can tell you, to stay up you need more than one goalscorer. A reported £5M bid has been accepted for a forward who has proved he can score in the EPL.
Perhaps John Stones still join Chelsea. With Man Utd loaning Adnan Januzaj to Dortmund they may yet pick up a player in return - I hope. With Arsenal looking just a couple of star starting 11 players away from title challenging side they are once again linked with Gonzalo Higuain yet join. Just who will sign Charlie Austin?
Hopefully there will still be one super sized deal before the deadline ends.
