Alex Telles signs as Manchester United could complete FOUR more deals, Thomas Partey in England to complete Arsenal move, West Ham terminate Wilshere’s contract

Manchester United have strengthened their defence with the £18million signing of Porto left-back Alex Telles.

One day after conceding six times to Tottenham, the Red Devils have recruited Telles with the 27-year-old putting pen to paper on transfer deadline day.

The Red Devils spent weeks pursuing the Brazilian, however there was a initial stand-off in theirs and the Portuguese club’s valuation of the player.

Telles is known as an attacking full-back and turned heads with 13 goals and 12 assists in all competitions last season.

He’s picked up from where he’s left off this term with two goals and two assists in three Primeira Liga matches.

Man United also hope to sign Edinson Cavani on a free transfer before the 11pm deadline.

West Ham, who are targeting a loan move for Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori, have cancelled Jack Wilshere’s contract by mutual consent. The former Arsenal midfielder has made little impact since moving to the London Stadium on a three-year deal worth £100,000 a week in 2018. What a sad tale. We’ll always have the memory of Wilshere against Barca in 2011

Newcastle United have signed 21-year-old Peruvian Rodrigo Vilca from Deportivo Municipal. He’s scored two goals in ten Peruvian Primera Division appearances this season, and can play as an attacking midfielder, a number ten, or as a winger on either flank. “It seems a very nice city and the hotel has a very nice view,” says the Nobby Solano de nos jours.

Arsenal have met Thomas Partey’s £45m release clause and now the race is on to get everything done. It’s a complicated business: in instances like this, the buying club deposits the release fee with La Liga, who then check the money has cleared and inform both player and club. Partey is believed to have completed his medical in Madrid, personal terms are all sorted – as per my earlier news story – and now he hopes to tie up the loose ends in London tonight. As long as the money clears in time, there should be no problems ... but expect to be hanging on for a few hours yet.

First Jack Wilshere, now another great unfulfilled talent bids farewell. Gerard Deulofeu has left Watford, joining Udinese on loan. Meanwhile another winger, Leicester City’s Rachid Ghezzal, is off to Besiktas.
