Sunderland – 1 Sep 01:50

Transfer Deadline Day ? all the deals as they happened

Follow TEAMtalk’s Deadline Day blog as we brought you all the done deals as they happened.

Teams have until 11pm BST on Wednesday to finalise their squads for the 2016/17 campaign and Premier League clubs have not been afraid to splash the cash this summer, with spending soaring through the £1billion barrier for the first time one window.


1:00am: And that is a wrap. What a chaotic day. Thanks for following our live transfer blog and make sure to join us later on this morning for the reaction to all the big moves, including Jack Wilshere’s incredible loan deal to Bournemouth, David Luiz’s sensational return to Chelsea and Moussa Sissoko’s dramatic switch to Tottenham. We’ll do this all over again in January! Good night.

12.49am: Still awake? Well we have one last piece of news to bring you. Sunderland tried to get a new goalkeeper in following Vito Mannone’s injury, but ultimately failed.

Sunderland smash transfer record to sign Lorient?s Didier Ndong

Sunderland have become the latest club to smash their transfer record this summer, paying Lorient €16million for midfielder Didier Ndong.

The Gabon international has signed a five-year-deal at the Stadium of Light, for a fee that eclipses that which they paid for Asamoah Gyan six years ago.

Ndong, a powerful box-to-box central midfielder player, becomes David Moyes sixth signing this summer.

“I am very proud and happy to sign for Sunderland,” the 22-year-old told “This is a new adventure for me and to play in the Premier League is a dream come true.

“Maybe the Sunderland fans don’t know me yet, but I promise that they will quickly discover that I will give everything for them and the club. It will be an honour to wear the Sunderland shirt and I will wear it with a true understanding of what it means.

“I am excited to meet everyone at the club, to see the stadium and of course the fans, who I have heard so many good things about. Today is the most beautiful day of my life.�

Sunderland set sights on Paul Pogba?s brother ? report

Sunderland are reportedly lining up a £6.5million deal for the Florentin Pogba – the brother of Manchester United’s world-record signing, Paul.

Pogba, three years older than his £89million sibling, is on the Sunderland manager’s radar ahead of a deadline-day move as he bids to beef up his central defensive options.

Moyes is looking to land the St Etienne centre-back, especially with Everton refusing to give up on their pursuit of Lamine Kone.

Pogba, 26, has been tracked by top-flight clubs during his five years in France and he has stayed away from international duty with Guinea this week in case a move gets pushed through.

He also knows Adnan Januzaj through his brother and the Black Cats winger may try to persuade him head of the north-east.

Sunderland could be set for a busy deadline day having already been linked with a €20million swoop for Didier Ndong from Lorient.
