As we head into the final hour of the transfer window, there are still several frayed ends to be neatened out as clubs scrabble to complete their squads.
Manchester United still haven’t got their move for Radamel Falcao over the line, though the Colombian sharpshooter is believed to be moments away from inking a season-long loan deal with the Old Trafford club.
The Monaco man’s arrival could spell the end of Danny Welbeck’s Red Devils career, with Arsenal heavily linked.
A flurry of bets saw the England international’s price to join the Gunners shrivel into 3/20 amidst news that he was having a medical with the Emirates club, but the north Londoners’ insistence that this wasn’t the case prompted his odds to balloon again, although Sky Sports News now report a deal is agreed in principle between both parties.
His teammate Tom Cleverley, though, looks to be nearing a Man Utd exit according to the odds gurus.
Previously available at 4/5 earlier today, the Bradford-born playmaker has come into 67/100 to sign for Everton before the 11pm deadline.
The stumbling block appears to be the Toffees’ unwillingness to sign the player permanently, favouring a loan deal instead.
One player not on the move, however, is Jermain Defoe.
First QPR, then Leicester were hopeful of persuading the Toronto FC striker back across the pond, but the former Tottenham goal-getter is now a meagre 5/100 to remain with the Canadian franchise.
Elsewhere, Arsenal’s pursuit of Matija Nastasic looks to have ran cold, with another 5/100 price saying he stays with Manchester City.
Arsene Wenger’s men were linked with a loan move for the Serbian, as were Newcastle, but both are out to 9/1 in this market.
