(Reuters) – Latest news and highlights from Europe’s top football leagues on transfer deadline day (all times GMT):


Stoke City striker Peter Crouch is set for a return to the Premier League with Burnley, with forward Sam Vokes going the other way, Burnley manager Sean Dyche has confirmed.

“I take great pride in Sam and what he has done for this club. As has happened before, players move on,” Dyche told reporters ahead of Saturday’s league clash with Southampton.

“He hasn’t played as much as he’d like and I understand that. As for Peter, he has a hunger to come here and make a mark. We know he’s a good character and he still has a desire. The main thing for me is having motivated people.”


Manchester City signed 18-year-old Hajduk Split midfielder Ante Palaversa for 7 million pounds on a 4-1/2 deal before loaning him back to his parent club until 2020.


Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Georges-Kevin Nkoudou has joined Monaco on loan until the end of the season. The Frenchman moved to the London side from Olympique de Marseille in 2016 and has made 26 appearances in all competitions for the club.


Newcastle United have completed the permanent signing of forward Miguel Almiron from Major League Soccer champions Atlanta United for an undisclosed fee.

British media reported that Newcastle had paid a club record fee of 21 million pounds for the Paraguay international, who has signed a 5-1/2 year deal.


Aston Villa have signed defender Tyrone Mings on loan from Bournemouth for the remainder of the season, the Championship side said. The 25-year-old has managed only five league appearances for Bournemouth this season.


Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has signed a new deal that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2024, after which the club have the option to extend the deal by a further year.


Spanish midfielder Denis Suarez has joined Arsenal from Barcelona on loan until the end of the current campaign, the Premier League club confirmed.

“We’re happy that Denis Suarez is joining us. He is a player we know well and I have worked with him at Sevilla. He brings us quality and options in different attacking positions, so he’ll be able to help the team,” Arsenal manager Unai Emery said.


Newcastle United have signed left back Antonio Barreca on loan from French Ligue 1 side Monaco until the end of the season with the option to buy, the Premier League club said.

“He has the attributes, he has the quality and he has the characteristics that we look for. Now we must see how quickly he can adapt,” Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez said.


Southampton striker Charlie Austin could be allowed to leave the club if they can find a replacement, manager Ralph Hasenhuettl has said.

“We don’t want to send him away,” Hasenhuettl said ahead of Saturday’s Premier League trip to Burnley. “If there’s an option and we can get someone in, then it could be that this works.”


Nantes have signed French midfielder Valentin Eysseric from Fiorentina on a six-month loan with an option to make the deal permanent. The 26-year-old has experience in Ligue 1, having played for Monaco, Nice and St Etienne.


Championship side Nottingham Forest have signed attacking midfielder Judilson Mamadu Tuncara Gomes, known as Pele, on loan until the end of the season.


Manchester United midfielder Matty Willock has joined Crawley Town on loan until the end of the season. The 22-year-old joined St Mirren at the start of the campaign.


Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Jonny Otto has agreed a permanent deal at Molineux until 2023, having spent the first half of the season on loan from Atletico Madrid.

British media reported that Wolves paid a club record 18 million pounds for the 24-year-old, who has started 20 league games this season.


Manchester United have reached an agreement with Shandong Luneng for the transfer of Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini, but the deal could drag on with the transfer market in China open until Feb. 28, British media reported.

Midfielder Fellaini enjoyed regular game time under former United bosses David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho who used him as an auxiliary striker, but has been out of favour under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.


Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter will join Bury on loan until the end of the campaign, manager Steven Gerrard said.

The 21-year-old former England youth international has been hampered by injury throughout his time in Scotland and has made just five appearances so far this season in all competitions.

Rangers completed the signing of American midfielder Matt Polster from Chicago Fire on Wednesday and Gerrard said it was unlikely they would make any more signings before the deadline.


Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino says he does not think they would be bringing anyone in on Thursday’s deadline day.

Despite injuries to Harry Kane and Dele Alli, Spurs are set to spend a second consecutive transfer window without adding a single player to the squad.

“I am going to talk now with my chief scout Steve Hitchen, I am going to ask for some news,” Pochettino told reporters.

“I expect that maybe some player is going to leave but I do not expect that we are going to add to the squad.”


Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe is set to join German Bundesliga club RB Leipzig on loan for the rest of the season, according to British media reports.
