Deadline Day – Brighton ‘snatch’ Martin Montoya from Fulham, Cottagers to sign Timothy Fosu-Mensah and André-Frank Zambo Anguissa?

Earlier in the day, it seemed likely that Fulham would complete the signing of right-back Martin Montaya from Valencia. However, in the last hour, Sky Sources have indicated that Brighton have snatched the deal and will instead bring the 27-year-old to the south of England.

In response, rumours now suggest that the Cottages will complete the loan signing of versatile Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah, who has experience playing as both a central defender as well as a right-back.

The Dutch defender was on loan at Crystal Palace, last season, where he played just over 20 games in the league for the Eagles.

Away from the right-back role, Sky Sources also indicate that the Cottagers have agreed a £30 million fee with Marseille for midfielder André-Frank Zambo Anguissa. The Cameroonian midfielder played regularly for Les Phocéens last season in both Ligue 1 and the Europa League. The 22-year-old also started in the Europa League final against Atletico Madrid, where the French side lost 3-0 to the eventual winners.
