Chelsea sign goalkeeper Marco Amelia
Chelsea announced the signing of former Milan goalkeeper Marco Amelia on a free transfer on Thursday. The 33-year-old was a part of Italy's 2006 World Cup-winning squad but last year had to drop five divisions to kickstart his career at amateur side Rocca Priora.
Amelia, who signed a deal until the end of the season, came to Chelsea on trial at the end of last month following Thibaut Courtois' knee injury. Asmir Begovic had been the only senior goalkeeper available to Jose Mourinho with sources saying Courtois will miss 10 to 12 weeks after knee surgery.
Everton sign Lennon
Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon, 28, has joined Everton on a three-year deal for a fee reportedly in the region of €6.2m. The former England international spent the second half of last season on loan at Goodison Park, scoring twice in 14 appearances for the Toffees. The move ends Lennon's ten-year affiliation with Tottenham.
Manager Roberto Martinez said: "We are delighted to welcome Aaron back to Everton. We know we are getting a player our fans know inside out. He had a major role in the second half of our season and we're looking forward to Aaron kicking on and continuing to enjoy his football, as well as being the productive player we know he can be."

Martial completes Manchester United move
Manchester United have completed the signing of Anthony Martial from Monaco on an initial four-year deal. United will pay Monaco €49m for the 19-year-old forward, making him the most expensive teenager in football history.
United boss Louis van Gaal said: "Anthony is a naturally talented, young, multi-functional forward with great potential. We have been watching him for a while now and he has developed immensely during his time at AS Monaco." His arrival comes after United sold Javier Hernandez to Bayer Leverkusen, while Adnan Januzaj has secured a loan move to Borussia Dortmund. Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao have also left Old Trafford this summer.
Ast. Villa 1.9.15
Lescott signs for Aston Villa
Aston Villa have completed the signing of Joleon Lescott from West Brom. The 33-year-old defender has signed a two-year deal at Villa Park after spending just over 12 months with the Baggies. Lescott passed a medical on Tuesday and the move ends a long transfer chase for Villa, who wanted to sign him before his move to Albion last summer. Lescott made 39 appearances, scoring once, for West Brom after joining from Manchester City on a free transfer last summer.
Villa also completed the signing of 18-year-old goalkeeper Matija Sarkic from Anderlecht.

UEFA confirm De Gea will remain at United
UEFA have confirmed that David de Gea will definitely stay at Manchester United this season after his proposed move to Real Madrid collapsed. The goalkeeper was on the verge of a switch to the Bernabeu last night after the two clubs agreed a transfer. However, Madrid failed to submit the requisite paper work before deadline. The Spanish club lodged an appeal in an attempt to force De Gea's move through earlier today, but the European governing body has confirmed that the transfer will not be allowed to take place and the goalkeeper will remain at Old Trafford.
Dyer joins Leicester
Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer has joined Leicester City on a season-long loan. The 27-year-old has seen Premier League opportunities with the Swans hard to come by this season following the arrival of Andre Ayew and scintillating early-season form of Jefferson Montero.
Watford sign striker Obbi Oulare
Watford have agreed a €8.2m deal with Club Brugge for 19-year-old striker Obbi Oulare. The Belgium U21 international has been watched by several clubs this season but Watford have taken an early gamble and have agreed a five year contract. Oulare, who has scored nine goals in 39 appearances for Brugge, came through the academy at Lille in France before moving to Brugge in 2013.
Also at Watford, Roma forward Victor Ibarbo is having his medical ahead of a season loan while Crystal Palace midfielder Adlene Guedioura, who was on loan at Vicarage Road last season, is joining on a three-year deal.
West Ham 1.9.15
Antonio joins West Ham
West Ham United have signed winger Michail Antonio from Nottingham Forest on a four-year contract. West Ham, who had brought in Alex Song, Victor Moses and Nikica Jelavic earlier on deadline day, had agreed a reported €9.5 million fee with Forest on Monday. The 25-year-old had joined Forest from Sheffield Wednesday a year ago and established himself as one of the Championship's leading stars during his year at the City Ground.
Ast. Villa 1.9.15
Aston Villa complete signing of Tiago Ilori
Liverpool have reached an agreement with Aston Villa for the season-long loan of defender Tiago Ilori. With Skrtel, Lovren, Toure and Sakho ahead of him in the pecking order at Anfield, Brendan Rodgers feels his development would be helped by playing elsewhere. The 22-year-old has yet to make a senior appearance for the Reds following his move from Sporting Lisbon two years ago. Ilori, who has already been sent out on loan twice by Liverpool to Granada and Bordeaux, becomes Tim Sherwood's 12th signing of the summer at Villa.

West Ham seal Song loan
Alex Song will spend a second season with West Ham in the Premier League after securing another loan move from Barcelona. The former Cameroon international made 28 Premier League appearances for the Upton Park club last term. Co-chairman David Gold tweeted: "It has just been confirmed. Alex Song has signed a season long loan deal to join West Ham. Welcome back Alex. dg."
Djilobodji joins Chelsea
Chelsea have signed Papy Djilobodji from Nantes on a four-year contract for a fee of €3.7m. Djilobodji, 27, can play at centre-back or in a defensive midfield role. The Premier League champions had been in the market for a new centre-back this summer and turned to Djilobodji after failing in efforts to sign Everton's John Stones and Zenit St Petersburg's Ezequiel Garay.
West Ham 1.9.15
West Ham sign Jelavic
West Ham have signed Hull City striker Nikica Jelavic. The Croatian forward has made the switch for a fee believed to be around €4m. Though Jelavic has become the Hammers' tenth signing of the summer transfer window, the 30-year-old is the only striker the Upton Park club have moved for. Jelavic spent the last season-and-a-half at Hull City, scoring 13 goals in 50 appearances. He previously had successful spells at Everton and Glasgow Rangers.
