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.

Tom Lawrence has completed a move to Leicester City for a £1m fee and has signed a four year contract.

You may remember the ex-Manchester United forward from his Premier League debut last season. He was given a chance by interim manager Ryan Giggs and scored three goals in the last three matches of a the season, including a brace on the final day against Stoke City. We are not sure if the forward will be a starter at Leicester but we think he was brought there to provide depth. If he does end up starting, he could have sneaky fantasy value in deeper leagues.

Southampton have acquired defender Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan.

This is a great move the Saints, who have just reinforced their defense with a number of signings. Alderweireld can play both center-back and right-back, and it's unclear where he'll play at the moment. The Saints have Jose Fonte locked in as a starter and recently acquired center-back Florin Gardos to partner him, so there may not be a place for Alderweireld there. At right-back, they have Nathaniel Clyne, who has played well going forward this season, but can be a liability on defense. Regardless of where he plays, we expect Alderweireld to start and be a good fantasy option for managers.

Southampton have signed forward Sadio Mane from Red Bull Salzburg.

Saints boss Ronald Koeman has said that Mane can play both centrally or as a wing but it's more likely he lines up out wide. New Saints striker Graziano Pelle has played well centrally and Mane will likely support him from out wide. It's unknown whether Mane will replace Shane Long on the left or James Ward-Prowse on the right, but you can expect some sort of rotation throughout the season. Mane has scored 45 goals in 87 matches throughout the last two seasons and can be a good fantasy value as Southampton seem to have a good attack once again.

Manchester City have agreed to a season long loan of Alvaro Negredo to Valencia with a commitment by the Spanish club to agreee to an eventual permanent move for a transfer fee believed to be in the neighborhood of £30million.

With the emergence of Stevan Jovetic this season, Negredo found himself fourth in the pecking order at the striker position and this move should give him more playing time. Valencia will have to wait a bit for his services as he currently recovering from a foot injury. Obviously, there must be mitigating circumstances around this deal but if all goes according to plan, Negredo will be officially out of the Premier League to begin next season.

Queens Park Rangers have Niko Kranjcar for a second season on loan after an agreement was made with parent club Dynamo Kyiv.

Kranjcar was a successful loanee at Loftus Road last season, helping Harry Redknapp guide the club to promotion from the Championship. Of course, the two have a history going back to Redknapp's days at Tottenham. Speaking of Spurs, former teammate Sandro will be in midfield as well. Sandro's spot in midfield would appear fairly nailed on, then Joey Barton and Leroy Fer come into contention, so it may be difficult for Kranjcar to crack the starting lineup without someone dropping form or getting hurt.

Hull City have signed Southampton midfielder Gaston Ramirez on a season-long loan.

Ramirez is a very capable midfielder/winger who has been a regular off the bench at Southampton in the past year. New boss Ronald Koeman apparently didn't have him in his plans, so he has sent him out on loan until the end of the season. Ramirez should be a starter at Hull and will have the opportunity to be a fantasy contributor, so he is definitely someone to keep an eye out on.

Queens Park Rangers added a key figure to their first team with the signing of Sandro on a three year deal, handing over £10million to Tottenham Hotspur for the transfer fee.

The Beast will be now be unleashed at Loftus Road, where he immediately upgrades the Rangers' midfield. He reunites with Harry Redknapp, who took the talented Brazilian under his wing when he broke into the Premier League in 2010. Sandro hasn't had a history of offering much in terms of fantasy appeal, but he will provide a presence in the middle that will open things up for other attacking-minded Rangers and their value looks to be on the upswing.

Stoke City have signed forward Oussama Assaidi from Liverpool on a season-long loan and will pay a £1m loan free.

Assaidi should be useful for Stoke, who need the help in attack. He wasn't going to get any playing time at Liverpool, so this is definitely a positive transfer for the forward. It's important to note that he has a lateral knee ligament sprain and could be out of action for a while. We don't have a return date for him so keep an eye out before you add him to any fantasy leagues. He is only a fantasy option in the deepest of formats, even when healthy.

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.

Manchester City have agreed to a season long loan of Micah Richards to Serie A side Fiorentina.

With Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta already in tow, Richards was never going to see much time at right back for the Sky Blues without a rash of injuries so the move makes sense as the rare case of an English player makes the move to Serie A.
