Hannover 23.8.14
Hannover complete Briand deal

Hannover have completed the signing of French forward Jimmy Briand, 29, on a one-year contract. The five-cap France international saw his contract with Lyon expire at the end of last season and had been linked with moves to Turkey and England. However, Briand, who scored 22 goals in 110 league matches for Lyon, is now under contract at the HDI Arena until June 2015.

Swansea 22.8.14
Swansea sign Carroll on loan

Swansea City have signed Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Carroll on loan, subject to international clearance. The 22-year-old has played seven Premier League games for Spurs and also appeared for them in the Europa League, but has found it hard to establish himself as a first-team regular. The England Under-21 international has previously been loaned to lower league sides Leyton Orient, Derby County and QPR, helping the latter reach promotion to the Premier League last season with three assists.

West Br. 22.8.14
Samaras joins West Brom

Former Celtic striker Georgios Samaras, 29, has signed for West Brom on a two-year contract. The Greece international, who was a free agent after leaving Celtic earlier this summer, becomes Alan Irvine's ninth summer. Samaras scored 73 goals in 249 games for Celtic after arriving from Manchester City, initially on loan, in 2008. He was part of Greece's World Cup squad this summer as they confounded the odds to reach the last 16, where they lost out to Costa Rica.

Liverpool 22.8.14
Liverpool in talks to sign Balotelli

Mario Balotelli could play against former club Manchester City on Monday as Liverpool move closer to signing the controversial striker. Balotelli's agent, Mino Raiola, travelled to Merseyside for further talks with Liverpool's chief executive, Ian Ayre, on Thursday after Milan accepted a 20m bid for the 24-year-old. Balotelli moved to Milan for 24m from Manchester City in 2013 and has scored 30 goals in 54 games for the Serie A club.

Real Mad. 22.8.14
Ancelotti confirms Di Maria transfer request

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that winger Angel Di Maria had asked for a transfer. Ancelotti's comment confirmed the rumours that have been circulating about the 26-year-old, who was one of Real Madrid's most incisive players in the second half of last season as the club won the Champions League and the Copa del Rey.

Another player whose days at Real Madrid could be numbered is World Cup winner Sami Khedira after the coach confirmed the midfielder had "rejected an offer to renew his contract."

QPR 22.8.14
QPR seal Vargas loan

Queens Park Rangers have announced the signing of Napoli winger Eduardo Vargas on a season-long loan. The 24-year-old impressed with Chile at the World Cup and scored in the 2-0 win over Spain. He scored five goals in 25 appearances for Valencia and has fired 15 in 32 games for Chile. Vargas is the Hoops' sixth signing of the summer following Fer, Isla, Rio Ferdinand, Jordon Mutch and Steven Caulker.

QPR 21.8.14
QPR sign Fer

Netherlands international midfielder Leroy Fer has completed a move from Norwich City to Queens Park Rangers for a reported fee of 8.8m. The 24-year-old scored three times for Norwich in the Premier League last season, but was unable to prevent the Canaries from being relegated. He scored the opening goal for Netherlands against Chile in his only appearance at the World Cup in Brazil earlier this summer.

Man. Utd. 21.8.14
United complete Rojo deal

Manchester United wrapped up a 20m deal for Marcos Rojo with the Argentinia defender signing a five-year contract. The 24-year-old, who played for Argentina in the World Cup final loss to Germany last month and scored earlier in the tournament, becomes United's third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera.

Barcelona 20.8.14
Barcelona transfer ban upheld

Barcelona will be unable to sign new players in the next two windows after a FIFA committee upheld their transfer ban. The ban, suspended in April pending an appeal, was handed down after Barca were found guilty of breaching rules governing the international transfer of minors. Barca fought their corner with FIFA's Appeals Committee but have been told the embargo stands. The club immediately confirmed it will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS). The FIFA ruling means there will be no new arrivals at the Nou Camp between this September and January 2016 - provided CAS do not overturn the ruling.

Sevilla 20.8.14
Banega joins Sevilla from Valencia

Sevilla says Argentina midfielder Ever Banega, 26, trained with its squad on Tuesday, confirming his transfer from Valencia. The Andalucian club had reached agreement with Valencia over his transfer on Sunday, but Banega had to pass a medical examination early Tuesday. No details of the transfer were made available by Sevilla. Valencia placed the underperforming Banega on the transfer list in January.
