Matt Jarvis will look to re-start a floundering career at Carrow Road where he will join a Norwich City attack that could use some help.

West Ham have been busy all summer adding players who are now presumably ahead of Jarvis in the queue for playing time. In Victor Moses, Dimitri Payet, Mickail Antonio, Alex Song, and Angelo Ogbonna the Hammers have an entire new midfield's worth of players to add to the ones remaining from last season. Jarvis hasn't been very good since his move to East London and maybe a change of scenery is just what the doctor ordered. He's probably not worth a waiver claim in draft leagues at this point but he's at least worth looking at to see if his new surroundings help get things moving once he returns from his thigh injury.

Nathan Dyer has seen the writing on the wall left by Andre Ayew and decided that his best course of action is a season-long loan to Leicester City.

Andre Ayew has been one of the signings of the summer already and the man he supplanted in the Swans starting line-up, Nathan Dyer, has taken the hint and left town in search of playing time. His move to Leicester City certainly doesn't guarantee playing time on the right side of the attack given the Foxes' strong attacking start to the season but there's at least a better chance of playing time with a man called The Tinkerman in charge.

Aaron Lennon has made his loan move to Everton from the second half of last season permanent as he moves to Goodison Park.

Lennon was fairly effective in both the real world and fantasy in his time at Everton last season. With the move now going permanent, Lennon will be a nice potential second tier waiver wire pick-up for fantasy managers who miss out on big signings like Kevin De Bruyne.

Saido Berahino has taken to Twitter to voice, err, type his displeasure at West Brom as they continue to refuse to sell the attacker to Spurs despite four bids being put forward.

It isn't quite the drama of Peter Odemwingie leaving training camp and driving to London on deadline day in hopes of inspiring his club to sell but it is certainly the digital equivalent. With the deadline approaching rapidly, Berahino had better hope that a fifth offer is accepted or that he can find a clever PR person to help him talk his way out of this because he is likely to be a very unpopular guy around the Hawthorns if he ends up staying at the club at least through January.

Sunderland is always a popular spot for unwanted Spurs players and DeAndre Yedlin has added his name to that list as he joins the Black Cats on a year-long loan from White Hart Lane.

The US international was already unlikely to get much playing time with England international Kyle Walker ahead of him at right back. When Kieran Trippier arrived earlier in the summer, it all-but sealed Yedlin's fate with even back-up duty likely to be very hard to come by. With this in mind, the young American has moved to the Stadium of Light to see if he can find playing time. With Billy Jones anything but a rock solid starter, Yedlin will at least get a chance to compete for the right back spot although he's hardly a shoe-in for the role given his inexperience outside of Major League Soccer.

Matej Vydra has left Watford for Reading while the Hornets have replaced him with Club Brugge forward Obbi Oulare.

Matej Vydra seems like he is destined to be a very good forward in the Championship who never really gets much of a chance to show what he can do in the Premier League. Despite Watford's failures in front of net so far this season, Vydra never got a significant chance to perform and now he moves back down to the Championship where he has been prolific in two different spells for Watford. Coming in as Vydra leaves is Belgian forward Obbi Oulare who arrives from Club Brugge to fight for playing time although at 19-years-old, Oulare is likely one for the future.

Joleon Lescott didn't survive the Tony Pulis purge and will now join fellow former Citizens Micah Richards and Scott Sinclair at Aston Villa.

There are worse transfer strategies than making bets on high quality fringe England internationals who make moves to big clubs only to see their careers stall. With Richards and Sinclair already present at Villa Park, Lescott makes it three that follow that same storyline. Lescott should be a regular starter for Tim Sherwood as he looks to keep Villa out of the relegation zone.

Victor Moses is headed out on loan for the third consecutive season with West Ham his destination this season.

Moses spent two seasons ago at Liverpool and didn't contribute a great deal. Last year he was excellent at Stoke City when he was healthy. This season he will move from West London to East London as he trades Chelsea blue for West Ham Claret and Blue. If healthy, Moses should be a great addition to fantasy squads and a starter for fantasy managers as often as he is a starter for the Hammers.

West Ham United helped out their injury-riddled forward line with the acquisition of Premier League veteran Nikica Jelavic via transfer from Hull City for a fee of around £3m.

The contract for Jelavic is for two years, but also includes an additional two-year option. Given the recent career of the Croatian, one would doubt that option will be exercised, as he has bounced around his last five clubs, lasting no more than two years at any one of them. With Mauro Zarate, Enner Valencia and Andy Carroll all banged up right now, it's a good thing for the Hammers that the window was open and could put a band-aid on the problem. Given that and Jelavic's familiarity with the top flight, we may see him starting very soon.

Chelsea secured the services of center back Papy Djilobodji via transfer from FC Nantes for a fee of £2.7m.

Djilobodji arrives relatively cheap and will very likely not be an immediate starter, if ever, for Jose Mourinho. That being said, given the state of the Chelsea defense through the first four weeks, no job is safe. The Senegalese international is hitting his prime at the age of 26, so you never know. Regardless, he is not one to rush out and get in fantasy right now.

Everton managed to fill a key need on deadline day by securing the transfer of defender Ramiro Funes Mori by way of River Plate for an estimated fee of £9.5m.

Whether or not John Stones were to stay at Goodison Park, the Toffees were desperate to bolster their defensive options and now they have it in Funes Mori. If Stones stays, it may take some time for Funes Mori to earn starts, but if Stones does find his way out, the new signing should start immediately and would be worth a waiver claim if looking for defensive help.

Norwich City have made room on their roster for new forward signings by loaning under-performing Ricky van Wolfswinkle to Real Betis for a season.

It hasn't gone well for van Wolfswinkle since his debut goal in the Premier League in the 2013-14 season. He was loaned out to St. Etienne last season and didn't fare much better there. He will now try his luck in Spain with Real Betis. You have to think that Alex Neil and company have pretty much given up on the player given their need for a forward.

Mesut Ozil failed to travel to Tyneside last weekend for the third time in his Arsenal career after picking up an injury in training.

Ozil is yet to play at St James’ Park in the PL having missed the Gunners previous visit – March 2015 – due to illness and the match before because of a shoulder complaint. On each occasion Ozil was only ruled out for a matter of days and this latest setback appears to be just that. Wenger confirmed the German had picked up a "minor" knee injury and should be back in training within a week. In his absence Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was afforded a rare start - on the right - [as Aaron Ramsey moved to a more central role] and it was the England internationals deflected shot which secured his sides’ eighth successive win against the Magpies.

Tottenham expect to know the full extent of the foot injury suffered by Mousa Dembele within 24 hours after the midfielder was taken off against Everton at White Hart Lane.

The exact nature of how the injury occurred still remains unclear although there did appear to be contact on his standing foot after the 28 year-old played a routine pass. On Sunday Dembele tweeted "Let’s hope the injury is not too bad" although his departure – on a stretcher – did not look good. Dembele has started all four PL games this season but his [potential] absence could hand former MK Dons player of the year Dele Alli his opportunity especially given that Erik Lamela is expected to leave within the window. French side Marseille are believed to have secured the services of the Argentine.

Southampton forward Emmanuel Mayuka leaves the club after disappointing three years.

Mayuka joined the Saints in 2012 but has failed to score a league goal in his time at the club. The striker is now headed to Metz on a three-year-deal and he can safely be dropped in all fantasy leagues.
