Football Focus: Deadline Day

BBC Sport presenter Dan Walker will help bring you the latest transfer news

Dan Walker and the Football Focus team round-up will bring you all the major transfer deadline day moves with news and reaction from around the country.

After months of speculation over the future of some of the Premier League’s biggest stars, top-flight clubs have until 11pm on Monday to strengthen their squads, and invariably many transfers will only be resolved at the last minute.

Last summer, English clubs spent over £490m in the transfer window, with deadline-day moves including Dimitar Berbatov’s switch from Manchester United to Fulham and Tottenham’s acquisition of Hugo Lloris from Lyon.
