Fletcher joins Marseille
Sunderland's Steven Fletcher has joined Marseille on loan until the end of the season. The Black Cats striker was given permission to travel to the south of France to undergo a medical with the Ligue 1 club, before the move was confirmed tonight. Scotland international Fletcher is in the final six months of his contract with the Wearsiders, and is unlikely to be offered a new deal which means he will be able to leave on a Bosman free transfer in the summer.
Debuchy joins Bordeaux
Arsenal right-back Mathieu Debuchy has joined Bordeaux on loan for the remainder of the season. Debuchy joined Arsenal from Newcastle United in July 2014 but his first season at the club was undermined by serious injuries, first to his ankle and then to his shoulder - both of which required surgery. He lost his place in the team to Hector Bellerin and, this season, he has been on the periphery, making only seven appearances.
Eder joins Lille on loan
Swansea striker Eder has joined Lille on loan for the rest of the season. Eder only signed a three-year Swansea deal last summer after completing a €6.5m move from Portuguese club Sporting Braga. But the 21-times capped Portugal international has had limited opportunities at the Liberty Stadium and made only four starts in his 15 appearances. The 28-year-old has started only two Barclays Premier League games and failed to score a single goal for Swansea.
Thauvin re-joins Marseille on loan
Winger Florian Thauvin has cut short his disappointing spell with Newcastle United by re-joining his former club, Marseille, on a season-long loan. Thauvin joined Newcastle last summer, but has failed to make an impact in the Premier League. Andros Townsend's arrival from Spurs shifted him even further down the pecking order, and he will attempt to rebuild his career at the Stade Velodrome in the next four months.
Jemerson joins Monaco
Jemerson has completed a move from Atletico Mineiro to Monaco on a five-year contract. The 23-year-old defender has signed a five-year contract with the Ligue 1 side for a fee reported to be close to €10m. Jemerson, who earned his first call-up to the senior Brazil squad last November, spent six years with Atletico Mineiro after joining from Confianca.
Monaco sign Vagner Love
Monaco have confirmed the capture of former Brazil international Vagner Love on an 18-month contract. Vagner Love scored 14 goals to help propel Corinthians to the Campeonato Brasileiro title in 2015 and has made the switch to the Ligue 1 outfit on a deal which runs until the end of the 2016-17 season. The 31-year-old striker, signed for an undisclosed fee, will wear the number nine shirt vacated by the departure of Dimitar Berbatov.
Lille complete Amalfitano signing
Lille have signed midfielder Morgan Amalfitano on a free transfer. The 30-year-old had been a free agent since being released by West Ham in October after falling out with manager Slaven Bilic. Amalfitano has now penned a two-and-a-half-year contract to return to his native France with a side that currently sit 11th in Ligue 1.
Pablo joins Bordeaux
Bordeaux have signed Pablo Nascimento Castro from Brazilian top flight side Ponte Preta. The 24-year-old central defender has signed a 4-year deal. He played 35 matches in the 2014/2015 campaign, catching the eye of the Girondins and paving the way for this transfer.
Rony Lopes joins Monaco
Monaco and Manchester City have reached agreement for the transfer of Rony Lopes, who has signed a five-year contract. The Brazil-born midfielder has represented Portugal at every junior level. In 2013, the then 17 year-old Rony Lopes scored on his professional debut with Manchester City. On loan at Lille last season, Rony Lopes made 23 appearances in Ligue 1 and scored three goals.
Marseille sign Lucas Silva from Madrid
Marseille have signed midfielder Lucas Silva from Real Madrid on a season-long loan deal, but without a purchase option for the French football club. Silva moved to the Bernabeu from Cruzeiro in his native Brazil in January but the midfielder was surplus to requirements for new Madrid coach Rafa Benitez for the coming campaign. The 22-year-old made nine appearances under ex-coach Carlo Ancelotti.
PSG confirm Kurzawa signing
Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the signing of defender Layvin Kurzawa from Monaco for a fee believed to be in the region of €22m. On Wednesday, PSG boss Laurent Blanc revealed a deal was close for the left-back and he has now put pen to paper on a five-year deal, which ties him to the club until 2022. The 22-year-old shone last season as Monaco reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Monaco seal Coentrao loan deal
Real Madrid have agreed to loan left-back Fabio Coentrao to Monaco for the remainder of the 2015/16 season. Portugal international Coentrao, 27, joined Real from Benfica in 2011 for €30m. He has been hampered by a series of injuries, making only 17 appearances in all competitions last season.
