Transfer deadline day latest

All the latest from around the leagues before the transfer window closes at 5pm.

The same can be said around the country, although there are still many transfers still up in the air. Adam Johnson's move to Manchester City is still not confirmed, while Ilan and Mido are still reportedly in talks with West Ham.

Benjani's and Aruna Dindane's futures are also still in question, with both being linked to Blackburn.

Wigan have made their second big signing of the day, adding to Victor Moses with Marcelo Moreno Martins from Shakhtar Donetsk on loan.
