Patrice Evra's long-rumored move from Manchester United to Juventus has been confirmed by the Turin club via their official Twitter account.

Manchester United have had an interesting summer at the left back position. Seldom-used reserve Alex Buttner left early in the transfer window after Luke Shaw arrived for a wildly expensive fee. Evra's departure means that Manchester United have a 19-year-old and not much else at the position. Recruiting a high quality reserve (Ricardo Rodriguez and Daley Blind) will be difficult because it will be (rightly) hard to convince anyone with prospects that Luke Shaw won't get the majority of the minutes. At the same time, it will be hard for Louis Van Gaal to rely on such a young player consistently when the stakes get higher. United's next step will be very interesting.

Real Madrid and Manchester United have reportedly agreed on a deal for goalkeeper David de Gea.

This one has been running in the rumor mill for over a month now and it seems it's finally coming to a close. The deal will reportedly send David de Gea to Real Madrid in exchange for £29m and Keylor Navas. Manchester United should be happy with the deal as it's close to the record paid for a player with just one year left on his deal. Sergio Romero seems set to be Manchester's goalkeeper for the rest of the season and he is a top-three fantasy choice at the position.

West Brom have signed goalkeeper Anders Lindegaards on a two-year-old.

The Manchester United goalkeeper never had a chance at winning the Red Devils' starting goalkeeper job and he will join West Brom, where he'll battle with Boaz Myhill and Ben Foster for the starting job. Foster is currently out with an injury and Myhill hasn't impressed enough to be guaranteed the job, so Lindegaard certainly has a chance to start as soon as week five. Keep an eye on the situation before you add him in fantasy.

Bologna have signed Sunderland midfielder Emmanuele Giaccherini.

Giaccherini joins Bologna on a season-long loan after being out of favor at Sunderland. He had four goals and four assists in 1356 minutes last season and didn't do enough to warrant consistent fantasy consideration. At Bologna, he might get more consistent playing time, but his fantasy value will likely remain low in the Serie A as he isn't a constant goal threat.

Disappointing forward Brown Ideye has departed West Brom a year after he arrived having provided very little in-between.

Consider this a panic buy last season as the club struggled to replace Romelu Lukaku for the second straight summer. They over-spent on the Russian League refugee and everyone, except the Baggies' braintrust, thought it was a bad idea at the time and thought no better of it after he arrived. Ideye had a brief positive spell that coincided with the arrival of Tony Pulis but that was about all the highlights. He departs the Premier League for Greece likely netting the Baggies a significant loss in the process.

Bournemouth are one of the clubs pursuing Charlie Austin and have the most favorable odds at signing him.

Bournemouth have a 7/4 odds at signing Charlie Austin before the transfer deadline tomorrow. West Brom are second with odds of 5/2 and Newcastle are in the mix at 9/1. Austin is a very capable striker who proved himself in the Premier League last season by scoring 18 goals in 35 matches for QPR. He's already scored four goals this season in five appearances in the Championship. Any Premier League team that acquires Austin will automatically become better immediately.

Fabio Borini has joined Sunderland for a fee of £7.75m.

Borini has been out of favor at Liverpool and has found a new home in the Premier League. The 24 year old Italian played for Sunderland in 2013-14 and scored seven goals in 32 matches to help Sunderland escape relegation. He will be welcomed back by fans, but he won't hold too much fantasy value outside of Sunderland's easiest matchups.

Southampton have signed goalkeeper Harry Lewis from Shrewsbury.

The 17-year-old joins a side that's currently struggling at the goalkeeper position but is unlikely to get first team action right away. Despite Maarten Stekelenburg's struggles early on in the season, Lewis will probably play with the U21s for now as he works his way into the first team. He holds no fantasy value at the moment.

German club Borussia Dortmund have announced the signing of Adnan Januzaj on a season-long loan.

Despite a few rumors around this move in the past couple of days, this is quite surprising to see. Januzaj started for Manchester United in week two and played well, scoring a game-winning goal against Aston Villa. Louis van Gaal apparently wasn't that impressed, and the belief must be that Januzaj will get more playing time and experience at Dortmund. Now in the Bundlesliga, Januzaj is obviously not an option in Fantasy Premier League games, but he could be an interesting choice next season if he remains with Manchester United. He will wear shirt No 9 at Dortmund.

Javier Hernandez has left Old Trafford for Bayer Leverkusen and passed 19-year-old Anthony Marital arriving from Monaco in the process.

Chicharito has had a frustrating time at Old Trafford. He started off his United career with a number of critical goals as something of a "super-sub" under Sir Alex Ferguson. After failing to grab hold of a substantial role, the Mexico international was sent out on loan to similarly frustrating results. Perhaps the last straw was a missed penalty against Brugge in mid-week. United have sold the once-promising forward to Bayer Leverkusen on a permanent deal. Taking the Mexican's spot on the roster will be highly-rated 19-year-old Monaco player Anthony Marital who helped boot Arsenal out of the Champions League last season. The only concern here is that Marital, like Memphis, is young and taking a step up in competitive level. He may be a great player in time but hardly seems likely to be the immediate boost United are seeking in their attack.

Daniel Sturridge is back in Merseyside to begin training again with Liverpool as he takes the next step in returning from a hip problem, but Brendan Rodgers could offer not timetable yet on the forward's return to competitive action.

The important thing for Sturridge is that there hasn't been any setbacks in his recovery, as he is still on track for a possible return at the end of September. Given his injury record, expect a very careful, gradual introduction back into action. While a fit Sturridge can do wonders for the Reds attacking plans, they are in much better shape without him now that Christian Benteke and Danny Ings are in the mix versus last season, when the secondary options were Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert.

Norwich’s excellent away record shuddered to a halt at Southampton, leaving question marks as to whether they are equipped to face the demands of a long, hard Premier League season…

The optimistic will point to right-back Steven Whittaker’s (soft) sending off after half an hour. Plus, Southampton looked a different animal having shed the weight of the Europa League. But the fact that eight of the Norwich starting line-up were involved in the relegation of two season ago is a worry. For all their defensive organisation and tidy midfield play, they lack cutting edge. Manager Alex Neil has been trying to add a striker all summer – bids for Stoke’s Jon Walters and Wolves’ Benik Afoe are the latest to fall on deaf ears. Early season star performers Nathan Redmond was nullified and Wes Hoolahan forsaken in the re-shuffle after Whittaker’s red card. And once that happens, this Norwich side don’t have a lot more to offer but honesty and endeavour. The next couple of days could be make or break for the Canaries…
