Jorge moves to Monaco
Monaco have signed Jorge on a five-year deal that will tie the Brazilian defender to the club until June 2021. After making his debut in futsal with Vasco de Gama, Rio-born Jorge moved to Flamengo, where he came through the academy system. Having made regular appearances for his country at youth level, he was part of the Brazil team that made it to the final of the U20 World Championships in New Zealand in 2015. Jorge made more than 80 appearances for Flamengo, and has one senior international cap for Brazil.
Lille sign El Ghazi
Lille has made its first signing of the January transfer window by bringing Dutch striker Anwar El Ghazi on a 4 1/2-year deal on deadline day. El Ghazi, who can either play in a lone striker's role or wide, joined from Ajax. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed but sports daily L'Equipe said El Ghazi was bought for a fee of €7 million.
Fee agreed for Payet sale
West Ham have confirmed that they have reached a £25million agreement to sell Dimitri Payet back to Marseille. Payet was voted West Ham's player of the season for the 2015/16 campaign for his stunning form, and was voted player of the tournament at Euro 2016 as France reached the final of the competition. Payet also agreed a lucrative new West Ham contract until 2021 at the start of the current campaign. However, the 29-year-old alienated Hammers fans after the winger refused to play for the club earlier in January.
Toulouse sign Delort
Toulouse have signed striker Andy Delort from Mexican side Tigres on a four-year deal. Delort was expected to form a potent attack with Andre-Pierre Gignac at Tigres, but scored only twice in 11 appearances this season. He scored 12 league goals for Caen last season before joining Tigres.
PSG confirm signing of Goncalo Guedes
Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the €25million signing of Portuguese winger Goncalo Guedes, who has agreed a four-and-a-half-year deal with the French giants. Benfica could receive €7m more if he is sold on. The 20-year-old Guedes arrives in Paris having played 68 times for Benfica, scoring 11 goals and providing 16 assists. It represents the second major piece of business by PSG during the January window after they snapped up Julian Draxler from Wolfsburg.
Patrice Evra joins Marseille
Patrice Evra's time in Italy looks to be over after the Juventus defender agreed a deal to return to France with Marseille. The 35-year-old has agreed terms to join the Ligue 1 side until the end of the 2017/18 season and will soon undergo a medical. Evra joined Juventus in 2014 and has two Serie A title, two Coppa Italia titles and a Suppercoppa Italia in 2015.
United and Lyon agree Depay fee
Manchester United have agreed a deal to sell Memphis Depay to French side Lyon for a fee that could reach around €25m. The 22-year-old Netherlands forward joined United from PSV Eindhoven for a reported fee of 28.8m in June 2015, but a frustrating first season at Old Trafford was compounded by a disappointing second campaign. Depay has made just one start in all competitions under Jose Mourinho.
PSG send Ikone to Montpellier
Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed Jonathan Ikone has joined fellow Ligue 1 club Montpellier on loan until the end of the season. Since signing his first professional contract last June, the 18-year-old midfielder has played seven games for PSG and was one of the best players in a League Cup quarterfinal win against Metz last month. Ikone won the under-17 European Championship with France in 2015.
Oniangue joins Bastia
Wolves midfielder Prince Oniangue has joined Bastia on loan until the end of the season. The Congo captain moved to Molineux from Reims last August for an undisclosed fee. But the 28-year-old has only made 11 first-team appearances and none since a 1-0 defeat at Brighton in mid-October when he was substituted at half-time.
Draxler to join PSG
Wolfsburg attacking midfielder Julian Draxler is set to join Paris St-Germain on a four-year contract in a deal reportedly worth up to €47m. The 23-year-old joined Wolfsburg from their Bundesliga rivals Schalke in August 2015 to replace Kevin De Bruyne, but he never really settled at the Volkswagen-backed club. Draxler scored five goals in 34 league games for Wolfsburg. Altogether he has 23 goals in 153 Bundesliga games, and three in 27 games for Germany.
Vainqueur joins Marseille on season-long loan
Marseille have made Roma midfielder William Vainqueur the third signing of a busy deadline day. The 27-year-old Vainqueur has joined on a season-long loan as he returns to Ligue 1 for the first time since departing Nantes in 2011. Vainqueur followed Rod Fanni and Clinton Njie to the Velodrome, with the latter arriving as part of the deal which saw Georges-Kevin Nkoudou head to Tottenham.
Balotelli joins Nice on permanent deal
Mario Balotelli has left Liverpool and joined Nice on a free transfer. The Italian striker spent most of Tuesday on the south coast of France where he agreed to a permanent move away from Liverpool. He spent last season on loan at Milan and has made a total of just 28 appearances in two years for Liverpool.
