Alli leaves Spurs after 7 years at the North London club.
Done deal | Aubameyang joins Barcelona from Arsenal
Guillem Balague, of Diario AS fame, reports that Barcelona have beaten the transfer window by convincing Arsenal to release Auba. As a free agent, the transfer is not bound by the window and they can take time to sort the paperwork.
Fans will have to wait until Tuesday morning before the official announcement
The window is closed, but outstanding deals remain
The January transfer window is now over, but fans eagerly await announcements, especially regarding these deals:
- Dele Alli to Everton, thought to be in the region of £40 milliom
- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona.
Done deal | Burn joins Newcastle from Brighton
Newcastle end their busy window by signing defender Dan Burn from Brighton.
Done deal | Ramsey joins Rangers from Juventus
More movement in Turin as the Wales international joins Glasgow Rangers on loan.
Done deal | Van de Beek is a Toffee
The Dutch midfielder has been freed from his Old Trafford purgatory and will hope to kick-start his career at Goodison after joining on loan.
Alli closing in on Everton move
The former England international's star has been on the wane for some time now but a move to Everton to join Frank Lampard's Goodison revolution may be just the ticket.
Spurs apparently out of Dembélé contention
Tottenham were said to be considering a late bid to bring in the France winger from Barcelona, but were put off by the cost.
The Gabon forward is now said to be undergoing a medical at Barcelona, with Joan Laporta telling the media he is hopeful of a deal being pushed through for the former Arsenal captain before the deadline.
Done deal | Elche sign Ponce
Elche have brought Ezequiel Ponce back to LaLiga from Spartak Moscow, the Argentina under-23 international having played for Granada back in 2016-17.
Done deal | Zakaria joins Juventus
It's been a busy afternoon in Turin and Juve have completed another deal, this time incoming as in-demand Swiss midfielder Denis Zakaria makes the move to Serie A from Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Done deal | Bryan Gil joins Valencia
The Tottenham clear-out is in full swing now as Antonio Conte wields the axe. Spain international Bryan Gil is the latest out of the door, joining Valencia on loan six months after moving to London from Sevilla, although he was on loan at Eibar in 2020-21.
According to Barcelona-based journalist Helena Condis Edo, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's representatives are still in the offices of Barça sporting honcho Mateu Alemany trying to hammer out a deal for the wantaway Arsenal forward.
Chelsea to nip in for Dembélé?
Ousmane Dembélé has been linked with numerous clubs recently, among them PSG and Manchester United, but it seems Thomas Tuchel has snuck in to offer the France winger an opportunity away from Camp Nou, where he is not part of Xavi's plans.
Done deal | Bentancur joins Spurs
Decent bit of business for the Premier League side as Spurs reach a deal with Juve for the Uruguay international.
Done deal | Bournemouth snap up Nat Phillips
Bournemouth have agreed a deal to take Nat Phillips on loan from Liverpool for the rest of the season. The 24-year-old central defender managed just three appearances under Jürgen Klopp in the first half of the 2021-22 campaign.
Aubameyang to Barça off!
...or at least it appears to be if no more money can be snaffled together from down the back of the Camp Nou sofas.
Lingard Hammering it again?
It looked like Newcastle were going to prise him away from Old Trafford but a more familiar London location could now be the Englishman's destination.
Tick tock, tick tock...
Done deal | Alvarez to Man City
The 22-year-old forward, who has already collected five senior international caps with Argentina, has agreed a five-and-a-half-year deal. Director of Football Txiki Begiristain believes City have signed a player with significant potential.
“Julian is a player we have monitored for some time,” Begiristain said. “He is capable of operating in a number of attacking roles, and we firmly believe he's one of the best young attacking players in South America.
“I am so happy we have managed to bring him to Manchester City. I really believe we can provide him with the right conditions to fulfil his potential and become a top player.”
Done deal | Lampard in the Everton dugout
He knows all about the colour blue so this could be a good fit.
Then again, Frank Lampard also knows a lot about winning in recent decades...
Everton fans chewing over multiple links
The Toffees are potentially lining up three sizeable additions on deadline day:
- Ajax star and Manchester United dud, Donny van de Beek has reportedly already passed his medical
- Dele Alli could be heading to Merseyside from Spurs on a permanent deal
- Real Madrid may be willing to let Luka Jovic disappear once again on loan
Would that be decent business?

According to Romano, Tanguy Ndombele’s time at Spurs is almost over, at least for a while.
He is said to be going through a medical in Lyon today ahead of his loan move.
Toon army: reinforcements coming
It's the richest club in the world so of course those in charge will be splashing some cash before the end of the transfer window... especially as they have some critical months ahead of them to get out, and stay out, of the relegation positions.
Current situation has striker Hugo Ekitike lined up, while Matt Targett is reportedly in the medical room being asked to cough after leaving Aston Villa.
An exciting day on Tyneside!
Ramsey to Rangers?
When Aaron Ramsey left the Premier League to join Juventus, many believed he could fit into any midfield in the world.
Well, although nothing confirmed yet, the Welshman could be gracing the pitches of the Scottish Premiership. Is there anywhere finer?
According to Gianluca, personal terms are the only thing standing in the way of Ramsey joining the Gers.
Eriksen is back!
The former Tottenham and Inter Milan man will be returning to a Premier League ground far from you soon.
And we're all delighted to see it!
FC Barcelona uploaded a video of Adama Traore's arrival and medical at the club. His imposing physique has not gone unnoticed on social media.
