    EFL clubs have not declared a PENNY in January transfer fees, Martin Lipton reports.

    The astonishing lack of spending is the clearest sign yet of a collapse in the market due to coronavirus.

    Across Europe, as expected, deals were down markedly from this time last year, when Premier League clubs alone spent £230million.

    This year top-flight deals were worth less than £100m, with similar declines across Europe.

      DEAL ME IN

      Sky Sports News report that two deal sheets were submitted to the Premier League in which transfers have not been confirmed by clubs.

      We'd expect those to be Minamino to Southampton and King to Everton BUT we'll monitor that through the night.

      The deadline may have passed but the night is still young…

      It's that time of deadline day – What is a deal sheet? How do we know if a transfer has gone through? Etc etc.

      Looks like the Premier League website have it covered…

      Willock to Newcastle has been confirmed.

      A loan until the end of the season for the Arsenal man.

    • supal


      That's it… that's the end of the January transfer window.

      A quiet one by normal standards but there was at least some action and some signings.

      We may still have some deals announced in the next few hours so long as deal sheets were submitted in time.

      Arsenal and West Brom have confirmed Maitland-Niles's loan move.

    • supal


      Another loan departure from Arsenal which is all but done and will be announced shortly.

      West Brom have brought in Ainsley Maitland-Niles until the end of the season.

      That's FOUR new signings for Sam Allardyce in his bid to help the Baggies beat the drop.

    • supal


      We really are nearly there now – less than 20 minutes until the deadline passes.

      And of course, the window will slam shut. Never does it just close, it always slams shut.

      There still might be a way for Arsenal.

      Joe Willock has left the Emirates today and we're just waiting for confirmation, but it might be one of those that comes in in the early hours of the morning.

      Willock is on his way to join Newcastle until the end of the season.

      Liverpool's business today now makes sense.

      They have lost their third centre-back to a long-term injury with this news that Joel Matip is done for the season.

      Unprecedented that all three senior full-backs pick up serious injuries like this in a single campaign.

      Here's what Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said about Ozan Kabak's arrival…

      “He is only 20 now. he is at Schalke and unfortunately they are in a bad position in the moment.

      "For him, I think it’s a really good moment to make the move because, like each player in the world, you need a stable team around you and that’s what we can deliver.

      “We deliver a stable team and you can play your position, you don’t have to be 20 with pretty much everything on the pitch and not allowed to make mistakes anymore.

      “He’s really a big, big talent and we are really looking forward to working with him.”

      Bournemouth striker Josh King has picked Everton over Scott Parkers Fulham, Andrew Dillon reports.

      The 29-year-old striker has been linked with a move away from the Championship side since last summer, and he may now have found his way out.

      King has featured 14 times for Bournemouth across all competitions scoring only two, both coming in the FA Cup.

      And was heavily linked with David Moyes’ West Ham earlier on in the January Transfer window.

      Fulham have been chasing former Sunderland forward Josh Maja, and a loan deal with an option to buy looks likely.

      So, we're into the final hour of the window now.

      Liverpool have announced the signing of Kabak so that should be their business done.

      We're still waiting to see what happens to Josh King as well with Fulham and Everton. We have an update on that coming in…

      And this is a piece of the jigsaw that had to happen for Liverpool to get Kabak…

      Ozan Kabak has joined Liverpool on loan from Schalke until the end of the season.

      11TH-HOUR BID

      Southampton are trying to loan Liverpool's Takumi Minamino at the 11th hour, Tom Barclay reports.

      Saints will need to be quick if they are to get a deal done but SunSport understands there is a desire on both sides to make it happen.

      Signing the Japanese star would likely see Shane Long join Bournemouth.

      The Cherries are keen on the Irish veteran with Josh King set to leave for either Everton or Fulham.

      Celtic have signed Everton right-back and academy graduate Jonjoe Kenny on a six-month loan.
