Danny Rose will stay at Tottenham

Watford have had a bid rejected for Tottenham’s Danny Rose, according to Sky Sports.

Speculation over the 29-year-old's future has been rife all summer despite the player wanting to remain at Spurs and fight for a first-team place.

However, earlier this month Rose was left out of Tottenham's tour to Singapore and was told he was not part of Mauricio Pochettino's long-term plans.

Stay with us!


👋 BJARNASON LEAVES VILLA


🗣 HODGSON ON ZAHA

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed that Wilfried Zaha will be staying at Selhurst Park.

"He's staying, absolutely, and we're pleased about that," Hodgson told Sky Sports News. "I sent him home today, it being the last day of the transfer window, because it's well documented that he wanted to leave.

"It hasn't worked out for him in that respect but now I am looking forward to seeing him do this season what he has done for us in the past few seasons.

"We respect him and he respects us and we expect him to come back and do what he does.

"His beef is with the chairman and the owners because he wanted to leave and they didn't receive an acceptable offer, but when you sign long-term contracts then you have to accept this kind of thing and come to terms with that.

"I certainly don't have a problem with him."


🤝 LEEDS SIGN NKETIAH


✍️ LUKAKU JOINS INTER

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has completed his big-money switch to Inter Milan, the Serie A side have announced.

Just two years after arriving at Old Trafford from Everton, the 26-year-old this summer made clear his desire to move to pastures new.

Antonio Conte's men finally struck a deal that PA understands could reach 80 million euros (£73.75million) and includes a sell-on clause.


🤝 SOME MOOY-MENT AT BRIGHTON


🔵 PEARCE JOINS WIGAN

Tom Pearce has completed a move from Leeds to Sky Bet Championship rivals Wigan for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old full-back progressed through the ranks at Leeds after joining the club from Everton in 2014 and went on to make 10 senior appearances, scoring one goal.

After struggling for regular first-team football last term, Pearce joined Scunthorpe United on loan in January, making nine outings for the Irons.

A Leeds statement read: "We wish Tom all the best for the future."

🎥 LATEST UPDATES


📝 NORWICH LOOK TO TIE DOWN WEBBER

Highly-rated Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber is in advanced talks over a new contract at Carrow Road.

The Canaries want to reward Webber for his success and are in discussions over a deal, PA Sport understands.

Webber has been open about wanting to work at the top level and has previously said he will not be at Norwich for the rest of his career but is expected to sign fresh terms.

He has helped mastermind the Canaries' return to the Premier League after joining in May 2017 from Huddersfield.


🤝 WATFORD GET SARR-IOUS

Watford have confirmed the signing of Ismaïla Sarr from French club Stade Rennais


✍️ DIANGANA JOINS WEST BROM

The 24-year-old signed his first professional contract with the Hammers while current Albion boss Slaven Bilic was in charge at the Premier League club.

✍️ STOKE ADD SPURS' CARTER-VICKERS


🤝 MOOY CLOSE TO BRIGHTON MOVE

Aaron Mooy of Huddersfield Town celebrates
Aaron Mooy is set to join Brighton

Brighton are "close" to completing a deal for Huddersfield midfielder Aaron Mooy ahead of the transfer deadline, according to manager Graham Potter.

Australia international Mooy made 65 Premier League appearances for the Terriers during the past two seasons before their relegation in May.

"I think we're close at the moment but nothing to announce formally," said Potter. "But he's a player we like, of course, and we hope that we can get it finalised today.

"He's had experience of promotion out of the Championship and he's also had experience of being in the Premier League and, in terms of a character, we like him a lot. His attributes as a footballer, I think they fit into our group.

"I'm reluctant to go into too much detail, forgive me, because he's not our player."


🗣 TURNING WATER INTO CLARET

Danny Drinkwater - Chelsea bound?
Danny Drinkwater - Burnley bound?

Sean Dyche says Danny Drinkwater could be a Burnley player before the deadline - a deal has been agreed with Chelsea so it's just the formalities before he joins the Clarets.

There's a headline of turning (Drink) water into (claret) win but we just can't get it...


👍 FEE SET FOR SESSEGNON

Ryan Sessegnon could soon be back in the Premier League
Ryan Sessegnon could soon be back in the Premier League at Spurs

Ryan Sessegnon to Spurs is one of those transfer we always thought would happen, but somehow it's taken until deadline day to get it done. £30m is the fee being talked about for the talented England man and that feels like round about the right fee.

Good deal all round!


☘ TIERNEY HAVING ARSENAL MEDICAL

Kieran Tierney
Kieran Tierney is joining Arsenal on deadline day

Almost there, the Gunners are closing in on signing an actual defender! And a good one at that as Kieran Tierney undergoes a medical ahead of his move to Unai Emery's side - and it's a signing they badly needed.

He's highly-regarded in Scotland but this is a huge test, they'll be hoping they've got another Andy Robertson on their hands!


🐺 WOLVES AT THE DOUBLE

Nuno Espirito Santo needs plenty of players considering they're in Europa League action this season - and he's set to land two new faces in the shape of Bayern Munich midfielder Meritan Shabani and Reading forward Danny Loader.

Both players are thought to be having medicals.

🙊 KLOPP - NO COMMENT ON COUTINHO

Jurgen Klopp refused to say whether Liverpool had the chance to bring Philippe Coutinho back to Anfield in this transfer window - which obviously means that they did, but decided against it!

Have they missed a trick though? There's no doubting Coutinho's quality so it can only be the bad blood that still exists from his exit that was a stumbling block..

🔁 FULHAM FAVOURITES FOR REID

Bobby Reid
Bobby Reid is not returning to Bristol City

Bobby Reid is NOT returning to Bristol City, with Fulham now favourites to sign the Cardiff man. The Robins had hoped to bring him back after he played in the Premier League with eh Bluebirds last season, but it is now the relegated Cottagers who are leading the way.


🐏 RAMS TO RAID CELTIC?

Derby are being linked with a move for Celtic winger Scott Sinclair. Neil Lennon left Sinclair out of his Champions League qualifying squad last night amid speculation over his future, and now it looks like it is the rams who are trying to make a late move for him.


⚪⚫ BAGGIES BUSY

West Bromwich Albion are looking to complete a couple of deals today - with West Ham winger Grady Diangana looking likely while they're still hopeful of bagging Charlie Austin.


📽 SPURS SEASON PREVIEW


🦉 OWLS SIGNING MURPHY

Newcastle have agreed to allow Jacob Murphy to go to Sheffield Wednesday on a season-long loan deal - he's on his way to the Steel City as we speak.


🛬 LO CELSO ARRIVES

It's getting closer Tottenham fans! The Argentinian is in London to complete his medical ahead of a £55m move from Real Betis. Along with Ndombele that makes it over £100m spent by Mauricio Pochettino after two transfer windows spending exactly zero.

Exciting times.


🦁 LION MORRISON JOINS SHREWS


👍 BURNLEY ESCAPE FOR DRINKWATER

Danny Drinkwater of Chelsea and Ainsley Maitland-Niles of Arsenal in action

Danny Drinkwater looks set to finally play some football again as he looks to seal a move to Burnley.

He played 30 mins of the Community Shield last season for Chelsea...that's it! Hopefully he can get back to his best at Turf Moor.


🥪 LUNCHTIME TRANSFER TRACKER


🦅 WANTAWAY WILF

Wilfried Zaha grabbed a dramatic late equaliser for Palace
Wilfried Zaha hasn't turned up for training at Crystal Palace

Wilfried Zaha is not training with Crystal Palace today as he looks to force a move away to Everton on deadline day, after the Eagles slapped an £80m price tag on him.

Player power is again set to come out on top and it seems only a matter of time before he gets his move - that could spell trouble for Palace though.

😲 DYBALA DEAL OFF!

Could Paulo Dybala be on his way to the Premier League?
Paulo Dybala is staying with Juventus

It's been like a Love Island triangle with Paulo Dybala, Juventus, Manchester United and Tottenham, but in fact it looks like now he's going to remain with his Old Lady in Turin.

When Juve's head was turned by Romelu Lukaku, Dybala instantly made a play for Man Utd, but the two didn't see eye-to-eye so he then went for a chat with Spurs.

That flirtation with Mauricio Pochettino was enough to force Juve into action though, and they've now pulled out of the break up and there looks to be an emotional re-coupling going on in Italy.

Glad that's over....


👀 TOFFEES TARGETING ROJO

Marcos Rojo could be out until 2018
Marcos Rojo is a target for Everton

After missing out on Chris Smalling, Everton are now looking to sign Man Utd defender Marcus Rojo. None of that sentence inspires confidence in the decision makers at Goodison but they've done pretty well so far this summer so we'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

The reported £20m fee could be a big steep though.


😲 CARROLL RETURN?

Andy Carroll
Andy Carroll is now odds-on to return to Newcastle

Could Andy Carroll be returning to Newcastle? He's as short as 1/5 to return to Tyneside this summer - although it doesn't have to happen today as he's a free agent so can sign anytime. Still, we love a story like this on deadline day.


⚫⚪ KRAFTH-TY SIGNING FOR NEWCASTLE

Mike Ashley takes a lot of stick but he is at least signing SOME Players, so pretty expensive ones such as Joelinton and some a bit cheaper such as Emil Krafth. But Krafth is a World Cup quarter-finalist with Sweden so not to be sniffed at.


📽 OWLS LOVING LUONGO


🏖 BRIGHTON DEAL DONE


😲 BYE BYE DYBALA

Paulo Dybala to Spurs is OFF! Those images rights were an issue in the negotiations, but reports now suggest that in fact it was Juventus who have pulled the plug on the entire deal!

Many not be the end of it but big blow if it stays that way...


😲 SCOTT CARSON TO MAN CITY, YES REALLY!

Derby County goalkeeper Scott Carson is heading to Man City
Derby County goalkeeper Scott Carson is heading to Man City

The Derby keeper is due for a medical at Man City ahead of a loan move to the Premier League champions - this transfer window just keeps on giving! It's not the biggest move but may just be the craziest as the former England shot-stopper goes to warm the bench at the Etihad as Pep Guardiola's third choice.

There's also the small matter of homegrown quotas to fill as well....


📺 MCGINN'S GOALS

Aston Villa have made a lot of signings this summer, and I mean, a lot, to keeping hold of John McGinn could be the pick of the bunch. He's signed a new five-year contract with Dean Smith's newly-promoted side.


💰 DYBALA - SHOW ME THE MONEY!

Paulo Dybala is a tricky man to negotiate with, especially when it comes to image rights, and that's a big sticking point in his proposed move to Spurs from Juventus.

Mind you, with Daniel Levy on the other side of the negotiating table this one could go right down to the wire!


👀 EDDIE'S ON HIS WAY...


👍 DOUBLE DEAL FOR CHARLTON


📢 DAVID LUIZ UPDATE..

The Chelsea defender is now said to be having a medical at Arsenal ahead of his shock move to the Emirates as this crazy deal progresses...


🦊 FOXES FEE AGREED

Leicester have agree fee of around £18m with Sampdoria for Belgium international midfielder Dennis Praet.

Praet is a former team-mate of Youri Tielemans at Anderlecht so they could form a handy midfield partnership at the KP next season. He certainly seems like a Brendan Rodgers-type signing.


⚒ DONE DEAL - WEST HAM


🧤 LEEDS COMPLETE KEEPER DEAL


📽 DEADLINE DAY BRIEFING


🗣 MAN UTD TARGET LUKAKU REPLACEMENTS

Could veteran marksman Mario Mandzukic be the man to replace Lukaku at Old Trafford? Reports say the Red Devils are taking a look at the Juventus man.

However, it could be Athletic Bilbao's Inaki Williams - but they'd have to pay around about £70m to get him over from Spain.


👍 LUKAKU DEAL AGREED

Romelu Lukaku
Romelu Lukaku looks to be off to Italy

Inter Milan and Manchester United have agreed a £73million deal for Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian has arrived in Italy ahead of a medical with a five-year deal expected to be signed at the San Siro.

Sky in Italy claim the Red Devils are now back in talks to sign Mario Mandzukic from Juventus as a replacement for Lukaku.


📝 SPURS CLOSE ON SESSEGNON

A deal that looked likely all summer long, maybe Spurs forgot about the Fulham man with all the hoopla over Dybala, Lo Celso and Coutinho - but a fee has been agreed with the Cottagers for the promising young full-back/winger.

He'll probably be deployed as a left back, or a wing back if Spurs go three at the back - either way there are plenty of options with this talented player.

The 22-year-old has been the subject of bids from Nottingham Forest and QPR in recent weeks, with the London club having an improved offer rejected on Friday.

Hull, Celtic and Aston Villa have failed with offers for McKenna in previous transfer windows. Villa's bid last summer was reported to be worth up to £7million.

Stoke are also believed to have shown firm interest in the Scotland centre-back.
