LIVE UPDATES: Transfer Deadline Day

Hello and good evening, deadline day has arrived and with it, as usual, come clubs across England scrambling to get any last mid-season transfers through in time.

Last year’s January deadline day saw some huge deals, including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s £56million arrival at Arsenal, and Lucas Moura’s £23m move to Tottenham.

Elsewhere, French striker Olivier Giroud swapped Arsenal for Chelsea and Andre Ayew ditched West Ham for Swansea in an £18m move.

This month has already seen plenty of significant moves, with Gonzalo Higuain arriving at Chelsea and Ryan Babel’s surprise move to Fulham.

When is transfer deadline day?

This year’s January window ‘slams shut’ on Thursday, January 31, 2019.

What time does the window close?

The window shuts at 11pm GMT.

What about other countries?

Many of the major European leagues, including those in Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Scotland and the Netherlands, also close on January 31.

The notable exception on the continent is the Portuguese window, which stays upon until February 2, while the Chinese and Russian windows both stay open until late-February.

We have a few hours to go but you can stay with us for all the deals.
