Former Manchester United and Aston Villa defender Paul McGrath has some advice for Tom Cleverley, heavily linked with a late loan move to the Midlands...
Tom Cleverly in I was you I'd ask your agent to take a cut in his fee . Villa is a place you could build a gud name for yourself #game time— Paul McGrath (@Paulmcgrath5) September 2, 2014
He said at a press conference ahead of England v Norway: "A fantastic signing, one of the best players in the world and a real statement of intent by Manchester United... I don't know how it will affect my role. You'll have to ask Louis van Gaal."
Away from the transfer talk for a moment, some bad news for new England international Jack Colback. The Newcastle midfielder received his first Three Lions call-up last week but has suffered an injury and will miss the friendly against Norway on Wednesday night.
We mentioned that clubs including Burnley and Manchester United failed to strengthen where they needed to most during the summer, but how about players? Which players were the biggest transfer window losers? Only one stands out: SAPHIR TAIDER. I mean, the guy has been sent packing back to Inter without making an appearance for Southampton because he failed to meet the commitment levels expected of a footballer. Ouch!
Biggest transfer window losers
According to Mundo Deportivo, representatives of Fredy Guarin were in Barcelona on transfer deadline day in an attempt to persuade the club to sign the Colombian midfielder from Inter. He was linked with Manchester United earlier in the window and was also a target for Valencia in the final hours before the deadline. A move failed to materialise, though, and he stayed in Serie A.

The striker, who has joined Valencia on loan with a view to a permanent deal, wrote in an open letter: "Today I say goodbye to Manchester City but I take with me many memories, lessons and great moments that will live with me forever. It has been one of the best years of my football career. At last I want to wish Manchester City many success for the future and thank the club for giving me the opportunity to sign for Valencia, a club to which I want to give back all the trust they have given me and start a new season with many success. Thank you with all my heart."
Negredo thanks Man City in open letter
It looks like John Guidetti may become a Celtic player after all. A loan move from Manchester City appeared to have fallen through, despite the club applying for an extension after the deadline, but Uefa has now listed him as a Celtic player on their official website. Interesting...
Plenty of done deals were completed late on deadline day - Mohamed Diame, Hatem Ben Arfa, Alvaro Negredo, Tony Alderweireld etc - and you can check them all out in one handy place below.

Six first-team summer signings and a whole lot of decisions to make for Louis van Gaal, so where will Radamel Falcao and Daley Blind come into his thinking? Goal's Chris Davie has taken a look at the various options available to accommodate the new boys - from dropping Robin van Persie to scrapping three at the back...
Where will Falcao & Blind fit in at Man Utd?
The Manchester United legend told BBC Radio 5 Live: "We've had a great scouting system that Sir Alex Ferguson put in quite a few years ago, where we did create young talent and homegrown talent. That's what we've done over the years and seeing Danny leave, he's been there from a very young age. His heart was in Manchester. Arsenal have got a very good, young talented international player."
As we wait to see if the Premier League has ratified his loan move, Sky Sports is reporting that Aston Villa are confident that the deal will be approved. Watch this space...
Transfer Talk: Villa confident of signing Cleverley
He told the club's official website: "I am delighted to be joining Manchester United on loan this season. Manchester United is the biggest club in the world and is clearly determined to get back to the top. I am looking forward to working with Louis van Gaal and contributing to the team’s success at this very exciting period in the club’s history."
Falcao: Why I joined Man Utd
He was linked with a move away for much of the summer, but Joel Campbell remains an Arsenal player. According to talkSPORT, however, he could have joined Benfica on deadline day if the Portuguese club had coughed up an extra £1.5 million. They were reportedly only prepared to pay £8m but Arsenal wanted £9.5m.
