Sunderland gave their best performance of the season but were still defeated 3-1 by a Liverpool side showing greater quality up front.

There were plenty of signs of encouragement for Sunderland fans, as Emanuele Giaccherini showed his quality, creating plenty of chances for his team mates and scoring a goal himself. Lee Cattermole was also excellent in midfielder, but the team were guilty of missing some fantastic chances (they had 23 attempts on goal) and Craig Gardner also hit the crossbar from a free-kick. The club remains win-less, but this will change soon if they keep up this level of performance.

Manchester United have added defender Daley Blind on a £14m move from Ajax.

Blind was largely unknown before the World Cup but his amazing assist to Robin van Persie in the opening match saw him become an instant fan favorite. He is a really interesting signing for Manchester. He played left-wing in the World Cup, a position Manchester spent £30m on earlier this summer(Luke Shaw) that is currently occupied by a Ashley Young. The good news is that Blind can also play as a center-back or a central midfielder. His best position is arguably in the center of midfield, where United have new signing Ander Herrera. Blind's agent, Rob Jansen, declared last week that Louis van Gaal has told Blind he can play in central midfield right away. We would hold off on using Blind in fantasy until his positional situation gets figured out.

Crystal Palace complete their second signing on deadline day with the capture of James McArthur from Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee.

While the fee hasn't been made official, it is thought to be in the neighborhood of £7m , which would be a club record. McArthur should see himself go straight in as a regular for Neil Warnock, set to partner Mile Jedinak in the center of midfield. At 26, McArthur is in the prime of his career and should be an integral part of how the season plays out for the Eagles.

Hull City have acquired midfielder Mohamed Diame on a £3.5 million transfer from West Ham United.

West Ham have done some good business this summer and had a bit of a jam at midfield so they've decided to recoup of the money spent on big signings Mauro Zarate and Enner Valencia by shipping off Diame. Diame will certainly be a big part of Hull this season, whether he comes off the bench or ends up as a starter. He will at least be part of the rotation and will help provide a spark at times. Despite that, he remains inconsistent and not enough of a stat-stuffer to be a good fantasy option.

Crystal Palace have made their first purchase of transfer deadline day by bringing in Tottenham Hotspur left-back Zeki Fryers for an undisclosed fee.

21-year-old Fryers has signed a three-year contract with Palace and becomes Neil Warnock's second signing following Wilfried Zaha's loan move on Thursday. The defender is primarily a left-back and will battle Adrian Marriapa for a spot in the Eagles' first team.

Argentinian international Ricardo Alvarez has completed a season-long loan move to the Stadium of Light.

This is quite a coup for Sunderland, with 26-year-old Alvarez joining the club from Italian giants Inter Milan, where he scored 14 goals in 90 appearances. The skillful midfielder has been capped seven times by Argentina and was part of his country's 2014 World Cup squad. He will add some attacking quality to to the Black Cats' midfield, competing with the likes of Emanuele Giaccherini and Jordi Gomez for a place in the starting XI, and could prove an interesting fantasy asset in the Yahoo game.

Sunderland defender Valentin Roberge has joined French Ligue One side Stade de Reims on a season-long loan.

Roberge is yet another of the signings made by Paolo Di Canio last summer who failed to make the grade in the Premier League. The defender made 13 appearances for the Black Cats but he doesn't feature in Gus Poyet's plans for the new campaign and has been allowed to returned to his homeland on loan for the rest of the season.

Sunderland have signed Liverpool center-back Sebastian Coates on a season-long loan.

The defender is far back in the pecking order at Liverpool as Dejan Lovren's arrival has pushed everyone back a place at the position. The defender missed most of last season with a torn ACL and despite being Uruguay's World Cup squad, he hasn't been in a single match-day squad for Liverpool this season. It's unknown how much playing time Coates will get at Sunderland so approach with caution.

Tottenham have signed midfielder Benjamin Stambouli from Montpellier.

Stambouli is a very solid defensive midfielder and comes after Tottenham were trashed by Liverpool over the weekend. He should help a struggling defense this season and is a great signing by Spurs. Fantasy wise, Stambouli is not one for the credible fantasy manager. He only has three goals in 112 matches with Montpellier and doesn't produce enough attacking stats to make himself fantasy relevant.

Lewis Holtby has officially been loaned out by Tottenham Hotspur to Bundesliga side Hamburg SV on a year long deal.

The move comes as little surprise as rumors of this very deal surfaced last week and Holtby is too young and promising a player to bee spending the majority of his season on Mauricio Pochettino's bench. Holtby was loaned out to Fulham last January in an effort to help the Cottagers avoid relegation but had little impact as Felix Magath chose several times not to select the talented midfielder for a squad begging for talent. He should fair better in his home country this time around.

Swansea City have agree to send midfielder Jose Canas to La Liga side Espanyol on a free transfer.

The Spanish defensive midfielder heads back to La Liga after just a year spent in the Premier League. Current boss Garry Monk did not have plans for him and with former manager Michael Laudrup having signed him originally on a free transfer, the experiment didn't hurt the club financially, but moving him does take some wages off the ledger. The heavy Spanish influence that permeated through South Wales when the Swans were promoted a few years back has essentially dwindled down to just Angel Rangel and Jordi Amat.

Hull City continue their deadline day dealings by signing striker Abel Hernandez from Serie A side Palermo for a £10m transfer fee.

A nice bit of maneuvering by the Tigers as they dealt Shane Long to Southampton for £12m. They bank £2m in the exchange and have a younger striker with arguably more potential who is fresh off of some priceless World Cup experience. He was also instrumental in helping Palermo's promotion to Serie A last season, scoring 14 goals in 28 appearances. Steve Bruce should have his two striker formation in place as Hernandez and Jelavic look to be regular partners up top.
