Leicester 3.8.15
Leicester complete double swoop

Leicester have snapped up defender Yohan Benalouane from Atalanta for 8m. The Tunisia international has signed a four-year deal to become the Foxes' second signing of the day after N'Golo Kante joined from Caen. Benalouane has moved for an undisclosed fee and becomes the club's fifth signing of the summer. The 29-year-old will challenge Robert Huth and Wes Morgan for a place in central defence. French midfielder Kante, 24, has also agreed a four-year deal.

Palace 3.8.15
Wickham joins Palace from Sunderland

Crystal Palace have signed Connor Wickham from Sunderland on a five-year deal for an initial fee of 10m. The 22-year-old striker joined Sunderland from Ipswich in 2011 and scored 15 goals in 91 appearances for the Wearside club. Wickham is Alan Pardew's fourth signing of the summer after Yohan Cabaye from Paris Saint-Germain, Alex McCarthy from Queens Park Rangers and Patrick Bamford on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

Man. Utd. 3.8.15
Di Maria and Rafael out, Pedro in?

With Angel Di Maria in Doha for a medical ahead of a 63m transfer to Paris St. Germain, Manchester United are now able to make their move for Barcelona winger Pedro. The report says United are willing to pay Barcelona's asking price of 31m but are hoping to pay around 25m. Pedro has struggled to gain a place in the starting XI with Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez keeping him out of the team.

Meanwhile, Manchester United right-back Rafael Da Silva has arrived in France ahead of his proposed move to Lyon although no fee has yet been agreed by the clubs. The right-back's move to Ligue 1 comes after United boss Louis van Gaal left the Brazilian out of the club's pre-season tour of the US following a season in which Rafael made only 11 first-team appearances due to a series of injuries.

Getafe 3.8.15
Getafe sign Victor Rodriguez

Getafe have completed the signing of winger Victor Rodriguez from Elche on a season-long loan. The 26-year-old becomes the fifth player to leave Elche this summer after the club were relegated at the end of last season due to unpaid tax debts. Rodriguez scored five goals in 39 appearances for Elche last term.

Las Palmas 3.8.15
Alcaraz joins Las Palmas

Antolin Alcaraz has signed one-year deal at La Liga new boys Las Palmas following his release from Everton. The experienced defender failed to hold down a regular spot during his time with the Toffees after following Roberto Martinez to the club from Wigan Athletic. Alcaraz, who signed a two-year deal on his arrival at Goodison Park, made just 14 Barclays Premier league appearances during his time in the blue half of Merseyside. Las Palmas, however, believe the 33-year-old centre back still has what it takes to play in the top flight.

Norwich 1.8.15
Norwich City confirm Jake Kean deal

Norwich have signed Jake Kean on a free transfer after the goalkeeper's release from Blackburn Rovers. The 24-year-old, who has penned a two-year deal at Carrow Road, made 44 appearances for Rovers having been handed his Premier League debut against Chelsea in 2012.

Norwich's manager Alex Neil said: "Jake is a good, up-and-coming goalkeeper. We obviously have Declan Rudd here as our No2 goalkeeper [behind first-choice John Ruddy] and we've sent Remi Matthews out on loan to get match experience, which I think is important for him. We needed to make sure we had cover for the goalkeeping position and we wanted to bring in someone who could push Declan."

Ast. Villa 31.7.15
Gestede and Veretout sign for Villa

Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of Rudy Gestede from Blackburn Rovers for 8.5m. The Benin international striker scored 22 goals for the Ewood Park club last term, including 20 in the Championship. Gestede, 26, signed a five-year deal at Villa Park on Friday, becoming Villa's second signing of the day after the EPL side brought in France midfielder Jordan Veretout for 11.4m from Nantes. Veretout, 22, has put pen to paper on a five-year contract.

West Br. 31.7.15
Lambert seals West Brom move

Rickie Lambert has ended his short stay at Liverpool after signing a two-year deal with West Brom in a 4.2m deal. The 33-year-old striker achieved a lifelong ambition when he signed for Liverpool, the club he supported as a boy, from Southampton in June 2014. But he made only 12 starts last season, and acknowledged the need to move in order to play regular football. He becomes West Brom's third summer signing, following the acquisitions of James Chester and James McClean.

Inter 31.7.15
City striker Jovetic joins Inter on loan

Montenegrin striker Stevan Jovetic has completed his loan move to Inter Milan, bringing to an end his injury-hit two-year spell with Manchester City. The Premier League club have confirmed the 25-year-old has joined Inter on a year-and-a-half loan deal, with a view to a permanent transfer. Jovetic joined City from Fiorentina in the summer of 2013, but has not been a regular in Manuel Pellegrini's side.

Arsenal 31.7.15
Walcott and Cazorla sign new Arsenal contracts

Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla have handed Arsenal a pre-season boost by signing contract extensions with the club. England forward Walcott, 26, is Arsenal's longest serving player with over 300 appearances and has penned a four-year deal. Spanish playmaker Cazorla has also finalised fresh terms with the Gunners, and though the length of his new deal has not been disclosed by the club, it is reported the 30-year-old has signed a three-year extension.
