  • Wigan have turned down a £10m bid from Newcastle for Charles N'Zogbia. So what's 'Plan B' Mike Ashley? If it's former players he wants, Faustino Asprilla was at St James' Park the other week...

  • Less than 30 minutes to go and we're still waiting! Torres, Carroll and Luiz are all still yet to sign on the dotted line. Torres is at Stamford Bridge right now holding talks.
    1/31/2011 10:34:28 PM
  • Wheres Andy Caroll currently?
    1/31/2011 10:36:43 PM
  • Hi PKrips, Andy Carroll is currently at Anfield, locked in talks about a £35m switch. They're leaving it very late but a deal looks certain to go through.
    1/31/2011 10:37:29 PM
  • RT @FunnyJoka: Harry Redknapp had to go to Spain to get mugged, Kenny Dalglish just sat at home and phoned Mike Ashley. #transferdeadlineday #bbcfootball
  • As much as £35m seems like great business for Newcastle (will they seriously ever get an offer that high again?), if the Toon Army are relegated as a result, it doesn't make much sense does it?
    1/31/2011 10:41:11 PM
  • Newcastle have confirmed that Xisco has left the club and returned to Deportivo La Coruna on loan. He's the one signed for £5.7m shortly before Kevin Keegan left. Good old Newcastle, always good for a laugh.
    1/31/2011 10:44:22 PM
  • 15 minutes to go. Already cringing at the thought of Sky Sports News cutting to Big Ben at the deadline.

  • Sky Sports say a five-and-a-half year deal for Andy Carroll has been completed by Liverpool. He will join for a fee of £35m.

    1/31/2011 10:50:43 PM
  • Meanwhile, Newcastle have upped their bid for Charles N'Zogbia to £12m. But Wigan have turned that one down as well.
    1/31/2011 10:51:15 PM
  • Arghhhh! This is tense!
    1/31/2011 10:51:30 PM
  • Wigan must be mad
    1/31/2011 10:51:45 PM
  • Just to prove how excited everyone's been during this transfer window, Liverpool are forced to explain why their website went down. A statement says they had 1.1 million fans visiting the site by 10pm, generating a record 8.5 million page impressions.
    1/31/2011 10:54:06 PM
  • Just 5 minutes to go. What are Chelsea up to? Still no Torres or Luiz!

    1/31/2011 10:58:35 PM
  • Yep, Sky Sports have cut to Big Ben. Nothing like it.
    1/31/2011 11:00:14 PM
  • And they've super-imposed Andy Carroll's face on to it. Superb.
    1/31/2011 11:01:06 PM
  • The window is shut!
    1/31/2011 11:01:42 PM
  • I thought the transfer window was supposed to "slam shut". I couldn't hear it from here.
  • We understand that all the major deals have gone through. Carroll has joined Liverpool, while Chelsea have signed Fernando Torres and David Luiz.

  • Is charlie adam staying at blackpool,then?
    1/31/2011 11:05:38 PM
  • Reports claim Tottenham came in with a last minute bid for Charlie Adam. But Blackpool have turned them down and he remains a Tangerine. Great stuff from Tottenham but hard luck this time Harry.

  • Is that £214m within the English Premier League only...?
    1/31/2011 11:12:15 PM
  • £214m is the amount of money spent by English clubs, so it includes the £27m Manchester City paid Wolfsburg for Edin Dzeko.
    1/31/2011 11:12:58 PM
  • A signing at Arsenal! Arsene Wenger has signed Japanese teenage forward Ryo Miyaichi on a "long-term" deal. The 18-year-old has been loaned to Dutch side Feyenoord for the rest of the season, Arsenal confirmed.
