Inquisition: Cheers bud

joethequin: Thanks mate, was gutted to not take a draw.
Shame about the City result, but a great response with a win over WHam. I'm sure the City result will be just a blip!
Nice start to the season but a tough result against City

Transfer Deadline Day I

It's all hectic down here, the phones haven't stopped buzzing and alleged transfers are flooding in from every direction, at the moment we have reason to believe that Micah Richards has made a £9.5M move to the red side of London from Manchester City, yes Arsenal have signed English right back, Micah Richards, Arsenal only have one player in this position, that being Bacary Sagna, but he'll have a bit of competition now.

Sources in France tell us that Swiss international, Blerim Džemaili has arrived at Paris Saint-Germain from Serie A side Napoli for a deal around the £13M mark. The ex-Napoli midfielder hadn't made the impact he had been expected to make at Napoli, and controversy strikes throughout the PSG fan base.

Over in Germany we have the most expensive transfer as of yet. Ukrainian Andriy Yarmolenko has completed a £23M transfer to German Giants FC Bayern. Having played for Dynamo Kyiv since 2007 after being promoted from the second team, the 23 year old left winger has played a vital part in Kyivs league wins in 2007 and 2009, and their second place positions in 2010, 2011 and 2012. But he now goes on to bigger and better things with Bayern.

As Andriy leaves Ukraine, Manchester United midfielder Anderson will be joining Ukrainian side Shakhtar for a total amount of £12.5M Anderson was not one of the 'best' midfielders United have had over the years, and boss Josh Sleightholm has for seen no future for the Brazilian this season, he will join other fellow country men such as Wellington Nem, Fred, and Fernando.

Finally, we have news that the 'hyped up' Mexican star Carlos Fierro, has made a £8.25M move to Benfica, from Liga MX side, Chivas. Carlos used to be vastly popular among the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, but interest seemed to have lightened, meaning Benfica could step in with ease. Fierro has made 41 appearances for the Mexican side, but has only hit the back of the net once. We will return shortly for the next few hours of deadline day.
Nice update :)
Good deal you got for Anderson!
Nick: Yeah is was a great bounce back, but yeah I hope so. :')

k1rups: Cheers man, and yeah, we were unlucky.

pompeyblue: Thanks mate, yeah glad I got over 10M for him.
I apologize for the lack of updates over the weekend, haven't had access to FMScout, I'll make up for all the lost time tonight, and tomorrow.

Transfer Deadline Day II

Welcome back to us here on Transfer Deadline Day. Straight away Liverpool's Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva has made a huge move to Manchester City for a fee of £22M. This move has shocked many as the price appears to be in excess of what people see Lucas ability at, but City have seen a talent, and they have snapped him up with ease.

Moneybags AS Monaco have acquired Spanish and French midfielders Koke, and Antoine , from Atlético Madrid and Real Sociedad respectively for a combined fee of £31M. Koke, aged 21, has attracted the attention of the money-ridden AS Monaco with his abilities in the centre of the park, and had cost Monaco £12M. However Griezmann aged only a year older than fellow team-mate Koke, has impressed with his own ability on the left side of the pitch, costing Monaco the remaining £19M.

Manchester United have let go of another left-back positioned player in Fábio. West Brom have brought in the defender for a fee of £2M. Alex Büttner was the other defender to leave United, after Swiss left-back Rodríguez had been brought into the club. That position in particular has been a weak one for the Reds, and selling the accomplished players for that position can only mean others are one there way in?

Despite the additions of André Schürrle and Willian, Chelsea have added to their deep pocket of quality wide players by letting go of £20M and receiving Frenchman Hatem Ben Arfa in return. Newcastle United are the destination of the £20M, as they sell the star that only contributed four of the Toons league goals last season. Not much happening these few hours, but with the final two hours left, things should get interesting...
Some interesting transfers going on seems like you had left back galore at your team haha!

Transfer Deadline Day III

Serbian Neven Suboti? has completed his £6.25M move to Spanish side Atlético Madrid. Borussia Dortmund, Nevens' previous club, had seen the centre-half as a key player in their back four, but with youngsters such as Koray Günter and Marian Sarr coming through the ranks, room will have to be made by the German champions.

Tottenham Hotspur have added to their spending spree by letting go of £14.5M to receive 23-year-old pacey winger André Ayew. The ex-Marseille winger had previously spoke out about a move away from the Stade Vélodrome, and his wishes have been fulfilled by the London side. Spurs have also added Morgan Schneiderlin to their creative midfield, who had arrived from fellow Premier League side Southampton, costing the Lilywhites a fee of £12.25M. This transfer looks like the last of the summer window, only 4 minutes remain for the faxes to be put through...

3 Minutes Remaining...

2 Minutes Remaining...

1 Minute Remaining...

10 Seconds...






Well it looks like it's all done and duste... No! Wait! We have had a very very late deal that's just been confirmed! Who could it be?

We have now reason to believe that Mateo Kova?i? has made a last second move to Manchester United on a deal to be believed around the £20M mark. The 19 year old from Inter Milan had only spent one season at the San Siro, only playing 13 games, but impressed new United manager Josh Sleightholm enough for him to make moves. Kova?i? could be United's answers to their central midfield restrictions.
KOVACIC! Great Signing!
The-forgotten-one: Yeah I know, some bizzare ones for sure, and yes there were loads, but all a load of tosh;)

TK69: Thanks mate:')

NVDTahir: Thanks bud :D

k1rups: Thanks mate, glad you do;p
