With the potential departure of Marouane Fellaini looming as a likely outcome this summer Everton have been linked with Dutch International Leroy Fer as a potential replacement.

Fellaini has played a number of roles in midfield for Everton over the last few seasons and it is unlikely that any one player will replace all that Fellaini does. Despite the difficulty in replacing the big Belgian, Fer, who has occasionally compared to Patrick Vieira, could come close to replacing Fellaini. He is tall, physical, a strong passer and has scored at least the occasional goal (26 in 150 matches) in the Eredivisie.

Manchester United have agreed to sign Colombia striker Radamel Falcao on loan from Monaco.

This is a massive move by Manchester United, with Falcao regarded as one of the top strikers in world football, having cost Monaco £50million in 2013. The Colombian's arrival is subject to a medical and the agreement of personal terms, but the majority of media outlets are reporting these issues as mere formalities. The completion of a deal for Falcao (for a £6million loan fee) is likely to see Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck leave Old Trafford before the end of the day. A striker had not seemed to be a priority position for United to fill, and there will be questions raised regarding Louis van Gaal's ability to fit Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Falcao, Juan Mata and £60million record signing Angel Di Maria in to a balanced starting XI.

Karim El Ahmadi has agreed a three-year deal to return to Feyenoord for an undisclosed fee.

El Ahmadi played 26 Premier League games for Aston Villa last season but was deemed surplus to requirements for the season ahead, so manager Paul Lambert has allowed the midfielder to rejoin his old club Feyenoord.

Blackburn Rovers have signed Republic of Ireland international defender Shane Duffy from Premier League Everton for an undisclosed fee.

Duffy was tipped for big things at Everton, but he has never been able to break in to the first team and spent all of last season on loan at Yeovil. The emergence last season of John Stones means Roberto Martinez has now allowed Duffy to move to Blackburn on a permanent deal, with the defender signing a three year contract at Ewood Park.

Javier Hernandez has traded the bench at Manchester United for a similar spot at Real Madrid behind their attacking stars.

A one-year loan with an option for Real to buy has been completed as Manchester United make room for Falcao. The move is an odd one for the Mexican international who, you'd think, would want to get more playing time in the prime of his career. Instead he'll sit behind Karim Benzema as one of two pure forwards but will also have to contend with Bale, Rodriguez and Ronaldo who all effectively play in forward roles.

Former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe may be heading back to the Premier League after just five months playing for Toronto FC in the MLS.

This news has coincided with manager Ryan Nelsen leaving Toronto FC following the club's 3-0 defeat over the weekend. Toronto general manager Tim Bezbatchenko confirmed that the club have received an offer for Defoe, and Sky Sports are reporting this offer has come from Harry Redknapp's QPR. With the transfer deadline just hours away both clubs will need to get a move on if they are to get a deal completed.

Hull City have signed Cork City defender Brian Lenihan for an undisclosed fee.

20-year-old Lenihan is a right-back who can also play in midfield, and is a Republic of Ireland U-21 international. He becomes Hull's seventh signing of the summer and will provide competition for Ahmed Elmohamady on the right flank.

Chelsea midfielder Marco van Ginkel has completed a year-long loan to Italian club AC Milan.

van Ginkel was behind on the pecking order at Chelsea and wouldn't have seen much playing time this year behind Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas, Ramires, and John Obi Mikel. The 22-year-old should get a good run at AC Milan and earn some very important first team experience while he is there. van Ginkel is a very highly rated prospect by Chelsea and should be a major part of their team going forward, just not this year.

Shinji Kagawa's frustrating time at Old Trafford has come to an end as he has been officially announced as a Borussia Dortmund player once again.

The star of consecutive Bundesliga titles before coming to England, Japan international Kagawa will be excited to return to a place where he is far more likely to see the pitch. The arrivals of Juan Mata and Angel di Maria have further limited the chances of Kagawa seeing significant playing time. The massive transfer fees paid out this summer and corresponding high salaries means that Kagawa is a luxury they can no longer afford.

Alexis Sanchez scored in a second consecutive match but Arsenal couldn't hold the lead for more than two minutes as they drew 1-1 at the King Power Stadium.

Arsenal continued to look tepid in the attack as they dropped two critical points to newly promoted Leicester City with goals by Alexis Sanchez for the Gunners and Leonardo Ulloa for the home side. The Foxes have been strong in their first three matches since returning to the Premier League but Arsenal should have picked up the three points after dominating possession.

Leonardo Ulloa has scored twice in Leicester City's two good draws this season against Everton in Week 1 and now against Arsenal this weekend.

The Argentine forward is looking like an excellent buy as he has helped them hold their own over a very difficult first three matches in the Premier League. Home to Everton and Arsenal and away to Chelsea is as hard as any opening group of matches is likely to be and Leicester City now have 2 points from those three matches. Leonardo Ulloa's finishing along with the excellent running, passing and crossing of Joseph Schlupp was the key to the Foxes' goal. They were supported by an all-around strong defending/counter-attacking effort from the entire team. Traveling to the Midlands to face Leicester City isn't going to be an easy task for established teams in the Premier League this season.

Queens Park Rangers' striker Loic Remy has completed a move to Chelsea on a four year deal.

The Blues were a bit scared earlier this week when Diego Costa suffered a minor injury and his status was unsure going forward. It seems the situation has inspired them to bring Loic Remy to town and they've finalized the transfer. Reports have also said that Remy has passed his physical, which was not as straight forward as usual since he failed a physical at Liverpool earlier this summer. Remy's fantasy value has taken a big dive with the transfer, as he is now strictly a backup to Diego Costa and will have to battle Didier Drogba for backup duties.
