Sky Sports are reporting that Marouane Chamakh will sign a new two-year deal with Crystal Palace.

Chamakh didn't score many goals for Palace last season, but his work rate under Tony Pulis was vital for the tactical system to work, and the club have been keen to extend the striker's contract before it ends on 31 July. The Moroccan has been linked with QPR and French side Bordeaux during the summer, but Sky Sports appear confident a deal with the Eagles has already been done and is due to be announced within the next 24 hours.

Phillip Wollsheid has left Stoke City for a year long loan to Wolfsburg. Dutch international Bruno Martins-Indi has arrived on a season long loan to replace him.

Wollsheid's loan is understand to have an option to buy if the German club wish. Wollscheid had been a solid performer in his time with the Potters but was never a good starter, instead getting his chances when injuries occurred. Luckily for him, that was pretty often. Stoke have signed Martins-Indi from Portuguese club Porto. He was one of the best performers at the 2014 World Cup but has since dropped down the pecking order, failing to meet expectations that he would be a player similar to Jaap Stam. He was subject to interest from Manchester United around that period too. He is a fast, powerful defender who is good in the air. He should compliment Shawcross well in the heart of Stoke's back line. Mark Hughes will be hoping the 24 year old can bring the experience and solidity needed to help his team stop the rot after a poor opening few games.

Stoke City have trimmed their defensive corps with the sale of Philipp Wollscheid to Wolfsburg.

The German defender never quite settled in at the Britannia. Despite the Potters being hit with a ton of injuries last season Wollscheid never took the opportunity to make a starting spot opposite Ryan Shawcross his. With at least some of that defending depth back from injury, Wollscheid was surplus to requirements and has found a new home back in Germany.

It's one in and one out at the Potteries with Philipp Wollscheid departing and Bruno Martins Indi arriving from Porto.

Dutch international Martins Indi has been frequently linked with a move to the Premier League and it has finally come to fruition with the announcement of a transfer to Stoke City. This definitely represents an upgrade for the Potters who have looked off the pace early in the season. Hopefully, Martins Indi can defend a set piece without tackling opposing players in the penalty area. That alone would be an improvement for Mark Hughes.

Middlesbrough announced its 11th signing of the summer with a deadline day move for Aston Villa winger Adama Traore.

The 20-year-old joins the Teessiders on a four-year contract through the summer of 2020 after just one injury-plagued campaign the relegated Villa, where he made 12 appearances in all competitions. The pacy "He is another important player and I am expecting a lot from him. I’ve known him since he was a kid. He went into the national team just after I left, but I know all about him and what he can do. His level is higher than he showed last season, but in the right environment I’m hoping that he will show what he is capable of."

Burnley have completed the signing of Republic of Ireland centre midfielder Jeff Hendrick from Championship club Derby County for an undisclosed club-record fee, believed to be about £10.5 million.

After an impressive Euros campaign and a decent season with Derby in their failed promotion push last year, Hendrick earned his move to Turf Moor. He has signed a 3 year deal. In his time at Derby, Hendrick played 214 times scoring 27 goals. He will presumably push Dean Marney out of Burnley's starting XI unless he is pushed to his less preferred position on the left flank, where he would challenge Scott Arfield. Burnley beat off competition from Hull for the Dubliner's signature, having had a much smaller bid rejected earlier in the summer.

Sunderland have completed the transfer of Didier Ndong from Ligue 1 club FC Lorient.

Sunderland have announced that the fee is €16 million and that the Gabonese international has signed a 5 year contract with the northern club. Ndong started his career in Tunisia before before to Lorient, where he quickly established himself in the first XI back in 2015. Last term, he made 34 appearances in Ligue 1 notching up 2 goals from centre midfield. His stats in both tackles and interceptions mean that comparisons are being drawn logically to N'Golo Kante. However, Lorient's Vice-President has suggested he has great attacking potential and may be more like Michael Essien. His high rate of passing and accuracy suggest that he will be of use to David Moyes in counter attacks and controlling play, however he will have to curb his discipline. He was cautioned in 11 of 34 games last season and managed to get a red card already this season. He should take one of Pienaar, Gooch or Rodwell out of Sunderland's starting XI.

Watford's full back Allan Nyom looks to be on his way to West Brom today.

Reports indicate that West Brom are willing to part with as high as £4 million in order to secure the Cameroonian player. Nyom only arrived at Watford about a year ago from Italian club Udinese having spent a long period at Spain's Granada previous to that. It had recently appeared that he had committed his long term future to Watford when he signed a 4 year contract with the Hornets earlier in the month. Howver, having been a starter last season, Nyom has found himself on the bench for the first 3 games of 2016/17 and now looks to be seeking game time at pastures new.

Samir Nasri has been moved off of the Manchester City bench after signing a season-long loan deal to play with defending Europa League champions Sevilla.

The decks are being cleared at Manchester City today with Samir Nasri joining Wilfried Bony (Stoke City), Joe Hart (Torino), and Eliaquim Mangala (presumably Valencia) in being shipped out after a summer of retooling under Pep Guardiola. Nasri has struggled to make a real impact at the Etihad after a big money move from Arsenal. Between injuries and inconsistency, the former France international has failed to nail down a regular role in the first team. The move should help him reestablish himself and his value before a permanent deal in the future.

Sunderland look to be on the verge of resigning Yann M'Vila on a permanent basis from Ruben Kazan following his loan spell last season.

The Black Cats have already agreed a pre-contract to sign him in January but David Moyes wants to bring him into the first team now. However, his current Russian Premier Division club are demanding £7 million for his signature. This fee has been the sticking point up to now, however it appears Sunderland are poised to overcome this and sign M'Vila today. M'Vila has posted a picture on Instagram at Heathrow's arrivals hall. Whether he's taking a connecting flight north to Sunderland will materialise soon. The defensive midfielder appeared 37 times in Red and White last season in the league, scoring once and assisting a further 5 goals.

Reports are emerging that World Cup and double European Championship winning right back Alvaro Arbeloa is to sign for West Ham on a free transfer.

The former Liverpool man is understood to be in London to sign a one year deal after leaving Real Madrid in the summer. Bringing in a mentor to Byram will aid his development but crucially this should allow Michail Antonio to be deployed further forward more often or even permanently. He is not currently viewed as a starting option. Arbeloa appeared 9 times for the Galacticos last term, with two of those games being in the Champions League, which he won for the second time in three years with the club.

Interest by Tottenham in acquiring Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle United appears to be waning as Spurs cannot see eye-to-eye on a financial agreement with the Magpies.

Tottenham are put off by Newcastle's valuation of the French international midfielder, as the Magpies will not accept anything less than £30m for him. They are on the records as saying if no club is willing to pay £30m, Sissoko will be staying put. The link to Tottenham was a hot rumor this deadline day morning but appears to be cooling off, however the deal is not dead in the water. At the start of the summer, Sissoko was thought to be fetching around £16m-20m but Newcastle feel his performance at Euro 2016 has driven up his price tag. Sissoko certainly wants out of St. James' Park, so he still may land somewhere before tonight's deadline.
