Premier League transfer news: Rounding up the early-window signings
Yaya Sanogo to Arsenal
As rumours of massive deals for Wayne Rooney and Gonzalo Higuain fly around, Arsenal bolster their attacking options with a 20-year-old on a free transfer from AJ Auxerre. Never change, Arsene.
Cabral, Vito Mannone, Modibo Diakite, Valentin Roberge, David Moberg Karlsson to Sunderland
It's been a busy day at the Stadium of Light, with Paolo di Canio wrapping up no less than five transfers. Only one sees any money change hands, the acquisition of Vito Mannone from Arsenal, although the most interesting of the lot is probably Modibo Diakite, Di Canio's former teammate at Lazio and a hugely experienced defender. Cabral and Roberge, meanwhile, come from FC Basel and Maritimo respectively. In the other direction, Matthew Kilgallon and Titus Bramble are released as their contracts expire.
Another big window for Fulham, who bring in Athletic Bilbao and Venezuela defender Fernando Amorebieta and Dnipro's Derek Boateng on free transfers, along with completing a permanent deal for Sascha Riether.
Jose Canas, Alex Gogic, Alejandro Pozuelo, Gregor Zabret to Swansea City
No, us neither, but Swansea are making a lot of moves this window. Canas and Gogic arrive on free transfers from Real Betis and Olympiacos respectively, while Pozuelo and Zabret move for undisclosed fees from Betis and Domzale.
Allan McGregor, Ahmed Elmohammady to Hull City
Hull complete the signing of Scotland number one and former Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor from Besiktas for the sum of £1.8m, added to the earlier acquisition of Sunderland's Ahmed Elmohammady, who reunites with Steve Bruce, who initially signed him for the Black Cats.
Andreas Cornelius to Cardiff City
Cardiff open the summer with an impressive swoop for the Danish league's top scorer last season, the young Andreas Cornelius from FC Copenhagen for £7.5m.
Leandro Bacuna, Jores Okore, Aleksandar Tonev, Nicklas Helenius, Antonio Luna, Jed Steer to Aston Villa
Mid-table clubs are going crazy in this window, and Villa are no exception. Nicklas Helenius, the second top scorer in the Danish league last season, joins the man who beat him to #1 spot, Cornelius, in moving to England. Villa sign him from Aalborg, while also picking up young centre-back Jores Okore from FC Nordsjaelland. Tonev joins from Lech Poznan, while Antonio Luna moves for an undisclosed fee from Sevilla and Jed Steer signs from Norwich City on a free transfer.
