It’s the final day of the 2020 transfer window and time is running out for clubs across Europe to complete any last minute deals. Since some clubs tend to leave their business until the very last minute, it’s likely that many more signings are made throughout the day.
I’ve enjoyed covering Deadline Day on my website in the past so I thought why not do it all over again! Check out my website every so often for the latest transfer updates:

11.50am – Celtic are currently in talks with Tottenham to sign midfielder Victor Wanyama. It’s unknown whether the talks are for a loan or permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old had attracted interest from Crystal Palace earlier in the week but is now set to join the Hammers after a deal was agreed overnight.
7:32am – Deciding to cover Deadline Day while I’m already preparing for a newsday assignment at University probably isn’t the smartest thing to do. Nonetheless, today should be a good day.
