Manchester City saw four high-profile players leave on season-long loans with goalkeeper Joe Hart, striker Wilfried Bony, Samir Nasri and Eliaquim Mangala all leaving.

Bony was the only one to stay in the Premier League with a loan move to Stoke City, whilst England international Hart moved to Torino in Italy.

Nasri and Mangala have gone to Spanish sides having moved to Sevilla and Valencia respectively.

Spurs signed winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou from Marseille on a permanent deal and brought in goalkeeper Pau Lopez from Espanyol on loan.

Whilst Everton were disappointed to miss out on Moussa Sissoko they did manage to sign West Ham striker Enner Valencia on loan for the season.

Premier League champions Leicester spent around £25.5million on Algeria striker Islam Slimani from Sporting Lisbon  – which makes him the Foxes’ record signing.

Sunderland were another club to break their transfer record on Wednesday when they signed Gabon midfielder Didier Ndong from Lorient for £13.6million. Belgium defender Jason Denayer also joined on a season-long loan from Manchester City.

After an impressive Euro 2016 for Republic of Ireland, Jeff Hendrick moved to Burnley from Derby with the midfielder costing around £10 million.

Elsewhere, West Ham picked up former Real Madrid and Liverpool full-back Alvaro Arbeloa on a free transfer. West Brom were busy signing free agent Hal Robson-Kanu as well as defender Allan Nyom from Watford.

Hull made the trable signing of midfielder James Weir from Manchester United, striker Dieumerci Mbokani on loan from Dynamo Kiev and AZ Alkmaar midfielder Markus Henriksen on loan.

Middlesbrough saw one in and one out with Adama Traore joining from Aston Villa and Albert Adomah going in the opposite direction.

Stoke didn’t just sign Bony the club also announced loan deals for Porto defender Bruno Martins Indi and Derby goalkeeper Lee Grant.

Chelsea loaned Juan Cuadrado back to Juventus for three years which means he is unlikely to be seen in the Premier League again.

Gokhan Inler left Leicester for Besiktas and Serge Gnabry departed Arsenal for Werder Bremen.
