It's promising to be a feverish last couple of days of the transfer window.

One in, one out for Everton today, then, as midfielder James McCarthy makes his expected move to the Blues’ opponents this Saturday, Crystal Palace.

Might we see a swap involving the same two clubs in the opposite direction tomorrow?


9:00pm BST

Another one in! Everton have made their sixth signing of the summer, loaning right-back Djibril Sidibé from AS Monaco on a season-long loan with an option to buy for about £13 million:


8:00pm BST

Interesting one this. Fourth Official is a pretty reliable account and wouldn't be making up stuff out of thin air.

There had been some links to Morgan Sanson a few weeks ago too.


5:15pm BST

There's not going to be a late surprise move for David Neres either.


4:45pm BST

There's more going on here for sure, with Tottenham Hotspur being mentioned as the other side.


4:15pm BST

Pretty much the end of the #FreeZouma movement, I guess.


3:30pm BST

OH NOW IT IS ON!


2:00pm BST

The more things change the more they stay the same. Everton now can’t even get rid of Henry Onyekuru because of work permit issues.


1:30pm BST

Apart from all the craziness below, we're expecting some outgoing activity today too. Matthew Pennington could be headed to Hull City on loan, and we’d mentioned below that Palace could announce McCarthy too.


1:00pm BST

The Blues are also rumoured to be pushing for Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi if they can't get Zaha, or as well as?!


12:30 pm BST

Manchester United have three defenders rendered extra with the Harry Maguire signing - Chris Smalling, Phil Jones & Marcos Rojo - all of whom we've been linked with before.

Well, apparently we're going into panic mode now.


12pm BST

The on-again, off-again Wilfried Zaha continues. There's two different sets of reports going around today, one that Everton have given up on their pursuit of the forward, and another that the Blues keep upping the sum they are willing to pay for him.

Truth? Who knows anymore.


11:00am BST

Crystal Palace are close to signing two midfielders, one of them being James McCarthy.


We've had quite a start to the day already and deadline day is not actually until tomorrow!

Everton still have some pressing needs, an experienced centreback, am incisive wide forward and possibly another midfielder.

We're also expecting Djibril Sidibe to be unveiled today as the backup right back.
