Erik Pieters has joined Stoke City from PSV Eindhoven, becoming new manager Mark Hughes' first signing for the Potters.

Pieters is Holland's starting left-back and has played in the Champions League with PSV. He's had a terrible run of injuries, including months out when he punched a window after being sent off. If healthy he would likely supplant Marc Wilson on the left, and could be a good fantasy option in a normally secure Stoke defence. Only Stoke, however, could announce this signing by mentioning that he can cover in central defence.

Swansea have signed defender Alfie Mawson to a four-year deal after obtaining him from Barnsley for an undisclosed fee.

The Swans were unable to find a replacement for Ashley Williams with anywhere near the same name recognition, but the 22-year-old Mawson has shown promise at every stop so far in his career. Last year, he was a major influence in Barnsley's promotion from League One to the Championship and after just a few weeks at that level, he now makes the leap to the top flight. A job in the Swansea defense right now looks pretty much up for grabs. Stephen Kingsley could give way to Neil Taylor at any moment. Jordi Amat or Federico Fernandez could lose their spot at some point to Mawson or Mike van der Hoorn. Kyle Naughton would seem the safest ahead of Angel Rangel. It is a defense one can happily avoid for now anyway as the Swans face a brutal stretch in their schedule.

Stoke City have loaned striker Joselu to La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna for the remainder of the season.

Joselu was brought in last season as competition for Mame Biram Diouf but failed to make a lasting impression on Mark Hughes, scoring four goals during that campaign. It was pretty clear he was far from getting starts this season, only making the bench once in Stoke's first three league games. With the arrival of Wilfried Bony, Joselu became surplus to requirements. It should be Bony's job as long as he fit or doesn't completely flame out, with Diouf backing him up and Peter Crouch rounding out the depth chart.

Sunderland failed to sign a goalkeeper on Deadline Day which makes Jordan Pickford the default starter until Vito Mannone returns from injury.

The Black Cats looked to have a deal in place to sign Mika Domingues from Boavista on a two-year contract, but even though both sides reportedly were ready to shake hands, the deal did not get completed by the deadline. Pickford only has Max Stryjek behind him and Stryjek has next to no experience at this level of football. On a positive note, Mannone has had successful surgery to repair the torn ligaments in his elbow and, according to him, will be back sooner than the original three month estimate. While Elden Jakupovic was a serviceable 4.0m defender in FPL to start the season, Pickford looks to be the only option at that price now after Hull signed David Marshall.

Hull City have added 3 players to their threadbare squad. Having signed Mason, Marshall and Will Keane in their first summer signings only 2 days ago, they have now added another trio to their ranks.

Mbokani arrives at the KCOM Stadium on a season long loan from Dynamo Kiev. The Congo international will hope to fire his team to safety this term after his 7 goals in 29 appearances weren't enough during his time at Norwich last season. 21 year old midfielder James Weir has signed for the club from Man United signing a 3 year deal for an undisclosed fee. He has made only one senior appearance in his career to date. Marcus Henriksen is a Norwegian international arrives at Hull from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar. He scored 12 times and assisted another 7 in 28 league games last year. He also has form this term having scored 2 goals in 3 appearances in the Eredisie already. All 3 should be available to play in Hull's next game versus Burnley on September 10th.

Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle United for a fee of £30 million.

Sissoko had been looking to leave the club since their relegation at the end of last season. Spurs' lack of aggression in attack was clear in their opening games of the season and Mauricio Pochettino has moved to address this after failing to capture Zaha from Crystal Palace earlier in the week. The Argentine will hope that French international Sissoko will bring the necessary pace, power and directness that his team have lack. His attributes should compliment Eriksen, Kane and Lamela well and combine nicely with Dele Alli, who is similar in some aspects. Sissoko's apparent lack of consistent application application while on Tyneside will be a worry far fans. His standing on the touchline and not getting involved will not work in the high intensity Spurs tactics. He will certainly take time to settle in at White Hart Lane, however if he can reach the performance levels he showed at Euro 2016, he will be a fine asset for Spurs.

Tottenham have announced the signing of Georges-Kevin N'koudou on a five-year deal from Marseille for a fee of around £11 million.

N'Koudou scored 10 goals in 41 total appearances for Marseille last season. The French Under-21 international played primarily on the left wing for Marseillie, where he scored nine goals and five assists in 35 total appearances. N'Koudou, Spurs' third signing of the summer, adds needed depth for Mauricio Pochettino in his club's return to the Champions League and will provide competition on the left flank for Heung-Min Son.

West Ham has confirmed defender Alvaro Arbeloa as its only deadline day signing with the Spaniard joining on a free transfer.

The 33-year-old was not re-signed by Real Madrid this summer after spending the last six seasons with Los Galacticos. During this time, after spending two-and-a-half years at Liverpool, Arbeloa won nearly everything there is to win in world football: a domestic title and cup, UEFA Champions League, a World Cup and two European championships. Said the Spanish international: "For me, this is a great chance to be back in England and in the Premier League, which is a fantastic league and I want to put myself here again. This is a big Club and a great Club with fantastic players and a great coach."

Eddie Howe has finalized a season-long loan for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.

This is a huge deal for the Cherries. If Wilshere can stay healthy then he's a massive improvement over anyone that the Cherries currently have in midfield. He could conceivably boost the performances of Callum Wilson, Jordan Ibe and Josh King as well as producing strong statistics of his own.

Tony Pulis continues to go against type and bring in outside backs as Allan Nyom joins Brendan Galloway at the Hawthorns.

OK, let's not get crazy in assuming that Tony Pulis is going to go away from his favored four center back alignment. Brendan Galloway can play both CB and on the outside and none of the starting center backs have actually gone anywhere. The arrival of Nyom is likely a signal that Pulis is looking for a potential change of pace based on match-up and match situation. You can't say that he isn't at least trying to change things up a little bit.

The Liverpool version of the Mario Balotelli saga has come to an end with the confirmation of a transfer to Nice.

The powers-that-be at Liverpool will be thrilled to have the mercurial Italian forward off of their books and out of their hair. They certainly took a bath on both the transfer fee that saw him arrive and the wages he earned while at Anfield but at least he will no longer dominate a disproportionate percentage of the headlines compared to his (lack of) playing time. The Premier League will generate fewer headlines for his absence but his absence will barely be noticed on the pitch.

Stoke City have bolstered their defense with the signing of Dutch international Bruno Martins Indi from Porto.

Martins Indi is a significant signing for a Potters' defense that has struggled in the early weeks of the 2016-17 campaign. The central midfield trio of Glenn Whelan, Joe Allen and Giannelli Ibula haven't provided sufficient coverage and the center backs have been a bit of a liability. The arrival of Martins Indi should help solve one of those two problems and, hopefully, lift some of the burden on the midfield and allow them to focus more on improving a thus far fairly impotent attack. With opponents likely to be attacking the Potters more than defending, Martins Indi should have more than his share of opportunities for tackles, interceptions, aerials, and clearances.
