  • Arsenal secure Cedric Soares signing from Southampton
  • Wigan left-back Antonee Robinson's move to AC Milan falls through
  • Aston Villa get Borja Baston on a free

11.40pm – And with that we will call it a day. Man Utd provided the shock on an otherwise pretty quiet transfer deadline with the signing of Odion Ighalo. West Ham and Aston Villa brought in attacking players to boost their survival hopes while Sheffield United further bolstered their squad as they look to secure a place in Europe. But it was not smooth sailing for everyone today, with Wigan defender Antonee Robinson left to reflect on a failed move to AC Milan. Thanks for joining us today.

11.35pm – David Moyes seems pretty happy with his club’s late bit of business.

11.32pm – They left it late but West Ham have wrapped up an impressive deadline-day signing. Bowen has scored 17 goals in all competitions for Hull this season, 16 in the Championship. Now he’ll be tasked with helping the Hammers retain their place in the Premier League.

11.30pm – Confirmation comes from the West Ham chairman! Jarrod Bowen is a West Ham player and has signed a five-and-a-half-year deal.

11.23pm – The wait goes on to find out if West Ham managed to get the Bowen deal done. There are reports the move has been completed. Meanwhile, a former West Ham midfielder has been talking about his new club.

11.15pm – The new man at Aston Villa.

Elsewhere, Hull have completed the signing of James Scott from Motherwell for an undisclosed fee, while Nicolas Gaitan – the ghost of transfer window past – has joined French club Lille. The 31-year-old seemed to be perennially linked with January moves to Manchester United.

11.08pm – The moves are still being announced. Sheffield Wednesday have loaned Josh Windass from Wigan while Brighton have recalled Alexis Mac Allister from his loan spell at Boca Juniors after he was granted a work permit.

11.04pm – Sheffield United seem quite pleased with themselves after a busy January. They’ve made five signings as they look to push on and clinch European football next season.

11pm – The transfer window has closed! We’re still waiting to hear if West Ham have clinched a deal for Jarrod Bowen in time.

10.52pm – Aston Villa have announced the signing of Swansea striker Borja Baston. Baston’s contract was set to run out at the end of the season and has moved to the Premier League side on a free transfer. He is not the only departure from Swansea, as former England Under-21s midfielder Tom Carroll has been released.

10.37pm – It is not quite the striker signing Man Utd fans will have been hoping for at the start of the month, having been linked with Erling Haaland who has since joined Borussia Dortmund. But Ighalo will add depth to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s forward options, with Marcus Rashford out injured.

10.25pm – More deals coming through! Leicester have loaned defender Filip Benkovic to Bristol City, Cardiff have clinched a temporary move for Albert Adomah from Nottingham Forest, Newcastle winger Rolando Aarons is heading north to Motherwell until the end of the season and Crystal Palace have lent Connor Wickham to Sheffield Wednesday.

10.25pm – Man Utd have agreed a deal to sign Odion Ighalo! The PA news agency understands a loan deal for the 30-year-old striker has been secured until the end of the season, which does not include an option to buy. However, official confirmation could take a while as it is currently 6.25am in Shanghai.

10.20pm – Huddersfield have brought back Jonas Lossl to the club. The Danish goalkeeper impressed for Town during their two years in the Premier League before joining Everton last summer. However, he’s still to make a first-team appearance for the Toffees and has now gone back to West Yorkshire on loan for the rest of the campaign.

10.15pm – West Brom have completed the signing of Cardiff defender Lee Peltier on a short-term deal. Peltier has been released from his Bluebirds’ deal and will be a Baggie until the end of the season.

10pm – With one hour to go Leicester have confirmed their loan signing of Ryan Bennett from Wolves, while Tottenham have announced they have sold Tashan Oakley-Boothe to Stoke for an undisclosed fee. The 19-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Potters, who have been thumped 4-0 by a Wayne Rooney-inspired Derby tonight.

9.53pm – An exit from Hull! But it’s not Jarrod Bowen just yet. Markus Henriksen has joined Bristol City on loan until the end of the season. The Norwegian has not played for the Tigers this season but has appeared five times for his country.

9.41pm – Sheffield United have been busy this month, making five signings. Here’s boss Chris Wilder on their latest acquisition, Greek defender Panagiotis Retsos.

They’ve also let a few go, with the latest being Mark Duffy, who has joined Eredivisie side ADO Den Haag on loan after being recalled from Stoke.

9.33pm – Brighton told their fans that there was “still work to be done here” around 9pm. Well the club have just announced they have recalled striker Jan Mlakar from his loan spell at QPR. Safe to say by the replies to their tweet, it wasn’t what their fans were hoping for…

9.24pm – Last January, Kevin-Prince Boateng joined Barcelona on loan – and he’s on the move again this year. This time he’s been loaned to Besiktas from Fiorentina, who he joined in the summer and managed one goal in 14 Serie A games.

9.13pm – So that makes it three Premier League clubs hoping to complete signings of attack-minded players before the 11pm deadline. Man Utd are in talks over Shanghai Shenhua striker Odion Ighalo, West Ham are reportedly close to signing Hull winger Jarrod Bowen and Aston Villa are understood to be close to clinching a free transfer for Swansea forward Borja Baston.

9.02pm – West Ham are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Hull winger Jarrod Bowen on a permanent deal. The 23-year-old has scored 16 goals in the second tier so far this season.

8.53pm – Who wants to head abroad when you can go to Middlesbrough? Certainly not Ravel Morrison. He’s been speaking to his new club after his loan move from Sheffield United.

8.42pm – Former Man Utd youngster Ravel Morrison is on the move once again. He’s joined Middlesbrough on a loan deal from Sheffield United, where he’s made four appearances in all competitions since joining in the summer. Boro are Morrison’s 10th club since he left United in 2012.

8.25pm – The PA news agency understands Man Utd have indeed held talks over signing Shanghai Shenhua striker Odion Ighalo. It is understood a temporary arrival does remain possible at this late stage, but the time difference and the travel situation due to the coronavirus are just some of the issues to contend with.

8.16pm – Southampton defender Maya Yoshida has left St Mary’s. He’s joined Sampdoria on loan until the end of the season, when his contract with the Saints runs out. Yoshida spent seven-and-a-half years with the south-coast club. Meanwhile Spurs have let another player go out on loan, with 21-year-old Shilow Tracey joining League Two strugglers Macclesfield.

8.07pm – There are reports that United’s search for a striker could lead them to making a loan move for Odion Ighalo, who used to play for Watfod and currently plays in China. It’s certainly not a name you would have expected to see linked with arriving at Old Trafford at the start of the window.

7.54pm – Wolves’ newest signing speaks!

7.50pm – Man Utd may not have signed a striker (yet) but they did add to their squad yesterday with the signing of Bruno Fernandes – arguably the biggest move of the window. And United have shared footage of the Portugal international fitting in with his new team-mates ahead of tomorrow’s game with Wolves.

7.39pm – And another! Sheffield United have been busy this month as they look to build on their terrific start to life in the Premier League. And Chris Wilder has completed a fifth signing as 21-year-old Greece defender Panagiotis Retsos has arrived on loan from Bayer Leverkusen. Wilder said: “He’s an international who has played at the top level and cost a lot of money when moving across Europe. Now he wants to prove himself in the Premier League and this initial loan spells is a perfect opportunity for Panos to have a look at us and us to have a good look at him.”

7.30pm- We have some completed deals in the Premier League! Wolves have signed 17-year-old Rochdale defender Luke Matheson. The full-back, who made his name by scoring against Manchester United in this season’s Carabao Cup clash at Old Trafford, will return to Dale on loan for the rest of the season.

Brighton, meanwhile, have signed 19-year-old Chelsea defender Tariq Lamptey for an undisclosed fee. The England Under-19s international has signed a deal with the Seagulls until June 2023.

7.20pm – That said, a slip of the tongue from Steve Bruce at his press conference earlier gave the impression Newcastle had added to their striking ranks. We’re pretty sure he meant Dwight Gayle, though…

7.15pm – Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea and Newcastle are all teams that have been linked with moves for strikers this month but have not signed any. Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has defended his club’s decision to focus their attention on signing another – unnamed – midfielder in a deal that failed to materialise.

7.08pm – There is a confirmed outgoing at Aston Villa as 21-year-old forward Rushian Hepburn-Murphy has joined Championship side Derby on loan.

Derby’s fellow Championship side Reading have also added to their squad with the loan signing of Ayub Masika from Chinese side Beijing Renhe.

6.55pm – Aston Villa look set to boost their depleted striker ranks before the deadline. The PA news agency understands Borja Baston is joining from Swansea on a free transfer. Villa sporting director Suso knows the striker from when he came through the ranks at Atletico Madrid.

6.50pm –Man City have done some shuffling with young midfielder Matt Smith. They’ve recalled the 20-year-old from his loan at QPR and sent him to Charlton for the remainder of the season. Smith made 10 appearances for the R’s and will remain in the Championship with Lee Bowyer’s Addicks. Elsewhere, Wolves have sold 22-year-old defender Sylvain Deslandes to Romanian side FC Arges Pitesti. Deslandes made eight first-team appearances for the Molineux club.

6.35pm – Another Tottenham player heads out on loan as Kazaiah Sterling has made the short move to Leyton Orient on loan. Sterling made his Spurs debut in a Champions League game against Apoel Nicosia in December 2017 but has made just one more first-team appearance since.

6.22pm – Deal off! Wigan defender Antonee Robinson will not be joining AC Milan. The 22-year-old United States left-back looked set to join the Serie A giants after the clubs agreed a fee. But Wigan have announced that due to the need for further medical tests the move could not be completed before Italy’s deadline. Here’s what the Latics have announced.

6.10pm – A couple of former Premier League midfielders are on the move. Germany international Emre Can – formerly of Liverpool – has joined Borussia Dortmund from Juventus on an initial loan deal.

5.11pm – Brighton striker Jurgen Locadia has been recalled from his loan deal at Bundesliga side Hoffenheim. The 26-year-old Dutch striker scored four goals in 12 appearances for the German club but is reported to make a similar switch to MLS outfit FC Cincinnati.

Today, I am leaving Southampton after four and a half unforgettable years. Through it all – my first appearance against Vitesse, my first assist against Newcastle, sixth in the league in 2016, League Cup runners-up in 2017, my first goal against Wigan in 2018 – you have been there, chanting and supporting us. Through the highs and lows, celebrations and struggles, you have always had our back. From the first minute of my walking through the tunnel at St. Mary’s, your passion was unmatched and helped push us through and gave us that extra edge. As I embark on a new challenge in my life, I do not want to do so before thanking the Saints supporters, all the club staff and the board for all that you have given me and my family. I will never forget my time with you. All the best.

9.30am – Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer addresses the media shortly. What information will he have with regards to signing a striker today? Bournemouth’s Joshua King, a former Red Devil, was rumoured on Thursday night. Now that would make Howe look to the loan market…

The 19-year-old has signed a deal until 2024 at Carrow Road.
