    So with just over 24 hours left to go in the transfer window, dealings appear to have slowed down for the day.

    I'm shutting up shop for a couple of hours but I'll be back later with any breaking news.

    In the meantime, you can take a look of all of today's signings here.

    Bye for now.

    Leicester City

    And is the mass exodus from Leicester still on?

    Ian Stringer, BBC Leicester Sport

    I'm worried about this transfer window as far as Leicester City are concerned - massive caveat already; their owner is a billionaire, money is not the issue here.

    If there are genuine bids for Jamie Vardy and/or Danny Drinkwater from Chelsea, then I would not blame the players for being tempted - it is human nature. These are ambitious international footballers.

    Then there is Riyad Mahrez. He will go. Clubs know the price; he wants away, pay it and he is yours pretty much. Arsenal need some positive PR right now so do not be shocked if Wenger's wonga ends up on the most skilful player I have ever witnessed wear a Leicester shirt.

    Elsewhere I would not be surprised to see Ahmed Musa, Nampalys Mendy and Islam Slimani leave.

    Incoming? A centre-half. Ben Gibson at Middlesbrough has been mentioned. Extra bodies at the back are certainly required.

    Right, things seem to be winding down for the day, a bit like Chelsea's transfer dealings.

    Let's recap what they've been up to.

    Nick Godwin, BBC Radio London

    It seems Chelsea's decline has been exaggerated. Ever since that opener against Burnley, they have drilled out two excellent results despite significant absentees.

    So the calls for major surgery have quietened but the departure of Nemanja Matic, and Diego Costa's ongoing issues remain concerns.

    That is not to say money has not been spent. New recruits Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger have already shown promise.

    Last season, Chelsea won the league with quite a small squad, very few injuries and no European obligations. This season's demands will be much greater so Antonio Conte is hopeful of further recruitment in wide areas, central midfield and up front.

    Rich: If Coutinho is worth £150m then Sanchez with 1 Year left is surely worth at least £100m?!?!

    Billy: If Ox is worth 40mil for scoring only 9 goals, then Sanchez should be worth 233mil for scoring 53, simple.

    You've undervalued Sanchez by my calculations, Billy. He's worth a whopping £235.56m with that maths.

  6. De Girolamo joins Chesterfield on loan

    Diego De Girolamo

    Away from the Premier League, League Two side Chesterfield have signed Bristol City striker Diego De Girolamo on a season-long loan deal.

    He spent part of last season on loan at Cheltenham, while Bristol City have the option to recall him in January.

    Manchester United

    And here's the latest from the red side of the City...

    Bill Rice, BBC Radio Manchester

    It is no wonder Jose Mourinho is so pleased with Manchester United's transfer business this summer. Three of his four targets have not only been acquired, but Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof crucially all arrived before pre-season, allowing them to integrate with their new team-mates.

    A fourth summer signing - a wide player - now looks unlikely barring a late development after a move for Ivan Perisic stalled. But with Zlatan Ibrahimovic returning for the second half of the season after a knee injury, United have a squad ready to challenge for the title again.

  8. Post update

    Manchester City

    Time to for a bit of an around the grounds.

    Here's an update from Manchester City...

    Andy Buckley, BBC Radio Manchester

    Manchester City fans have liked what they have seen so far from their new signings. Manager Pep Guardiola knew the defence needed strengthening and Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy, Danilo and goalkeeper Ederson have already provided enough evidence to suggest the Blues are much better equipped to mount a sustained domestic and European challenge.

    Playmaker Bernardo Silva is a top-quality midfielder, and if Guardiola has his way the spending is not yet over. Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez has been coveted by the Spaniard, who has also done his best to prise Jonny Evans away from West Brom as defensive cover.

  9. Bruce leaves Bury

    Signs on 13 August.

    Scores on debut.

    Leaves on 30 August.

    All within one transfer window.

    Alex Bruce is "free to further his career at one of the many clubs that have offered terms to him".

    Where next for the centre-back?

    If you weren't with me earlier, I've been after your price for Alexis Sanchez. Is he worth more or less than Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain?

    Liverpool agreed a £40m deal to sign the Arsenal midfielder.

    Here are a few more of your replies:

    SMS Message: For a proven Premier League player in his prime with 'that spark', who can score and assist bucketloads, I think Alexis Sanchez is worth £90m in the current market. from George, Arsenal fan, Colchester

    SMS Message: If Arsenal were about to pay £40 million for a player with Ox's stats I'd be furious. Sanchez worth at least double AND a chunky Kit Kat.
  11. Post update

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Right, let's take a look at what's happening at Tottenham...

    Nick Godwin, BBC Radio London

    Spurs may well have had the best starting XI in the league last season, but depth and the lack of a Plan B remained a problem.

    The signings of Davinson Sanchez, Paulo Gazzaniga and Juan Foyth only go some way to address those concerns.

    There remains intense pressure from fans to recruit a striker, cover at full-back and a player with the pace or the imagination to change a game.

    No-one would miss Moussa Sissoko if he were to leave, but the future of Danny Rose remains uncertain. His departure would destabilise an already thin squad. But then again, who knows how complicated things may get if he stays?

  13. Sakho not for sale

    West Ham joint-chairman David Gold has sent out a definite message regarding striker Diafra Sakho.

    There were reports today that Crystal Palace had made a bid for the 27-year-old and that he'd even passed a medical at French side Rennes.

    Looks like he's staying in East London though.

  14. Saints' Clasie sent on loan

    Jordy Clasie

    Southampton midfielder Jordy Clasie has joined Belgium side Club Brugge on loan for the remainder of the season.

    The Dutch international, 26, joined Saints from Feyenoord for £8m in July 2015.

    He made 46 appearances in two years, scoring two goals.

    Saints vice chairman Les Reed said the club had a "strong and deep group of midfielders" and Claise would "benefit" from playing regular first team football with Brugge.

    Eddie Oliveria: I would say double Ox, Louise, but maybe in the ballpark of £65m.

    Jawad Kayani: £70m cash or Sterling + £25m for Sanchez.

    Jay: In today's inflated market, Alexis Sanchez is worth at least £100m + 1 kitkat.

    Presume that's the four stick Kit Kat Jay...

  16. Krychowiak to West Brom?

    Looks like West Brom are about to unveil the signing of defensive midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak from Paris St-Germain.

    Is this yet another cringey announcement?

  17. Juventus get Howedes

    Benedikt Howedes

    Calm, calm, it's only a loan deal.

    But Schalke's 2014 World Cup-winning defender Benedikt Howedes has signed for Italian champions Juventus on a season-long loan.

    Howedes, 29, spent his career at Schalke and was captain of the German club for six years.

    Juventus said they have paid an initial 3.5m euros (£3.22m) for the loan, which will rise to 13.5m euros (£11.96m) if he plays 25 times this season.

    They also have an option to buy Howedes at the season's end for 3.5m euros.

  18. Sanchez or Sanches?

    With deadline day approaching, there are plenty of names flying about and it's easy to get confused.

    So just to be clear - Manchester City are after Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, and in Wales, Swansea are confident of signing Bayern Munich's Renato Sanches.

    The final consonant is the key.
