thumbnail Hello,

Scott Sinclair could be in action for Manchester City, while Charlie Adam completed his move to Stoke City on deadline day in time to face Wigan Athletic on Saturday

By Stephen Darwin & Oliver Platt

Transfer deadline day provided its usual late flurry of Premier League action as top flight managers bid to secure their targets before the window drew to a close.

That was not the only deadline they were attempting to meet, however, as clubs were required to have completed their business before midday on Friday in order to include their new signings in their squads for this weekend's fixtures.

Business went on late into the night but Goal.com previews the stars who did seal their deals in time to debut over the next two days.

WEST HAM
Upton Park

FULHAM
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Andy Carroll
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Kieran Richardson



Andy Carroll will hope to revive a young career that has slowed since he made a £35 million move to Liverpool after agreeing to move south to London to join West Ham on Thursday evening.

The former Newcastle striker trained with the Hammers on Friday and could be immediately added to the starting line-up as Sam Allardyce's team attempt to bounce back from their 3-0 loss at Swansea City.

Kieran Richardson could feature for Fulham but despite his hints to the contrary, Dimitar Berbatov appears to have completed his move from Manchester United after the lunchtime deadline. The same applies for Ashkan Dejagah, the former Wolfsburg winger, while West Ham loan signing Yossi Benayoun was also an evening arrival from Chelsea.

SWANSEA
Liberty Stadium
Saturday
15.00
(BST)
SUNDERLAND
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Ki Sung-Yueng, Itay Shechter
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Steven Fletcher, Adam Johnson


Swansea could hand a debut to Ki Sung-Yueng, who arrived for £5m from Celtic, although Michael Laudrup may prefer to stick with the trio of Michu, Leon Britton and Jonathan de Guzman that has delivered six points out of six so far this season.

Ki was briefly the club's record signing before Pablo Hernandez arrived from Valencia for £5.5m on deadline day, but the Spaniard joined too late to feature in this match. Loan striker Itay Shechter, however, has finally received clearance from the Football Association to complete his move from Kaiserslautern and could play.

Sunderland handed first starts to Adam Johnson and Steven Fletcher in their League Cup victory against Morecambe on Tuesday and the duo could make their Premier League debuts for the club here, but Danny Rose joined after midday.

TOTTENHAM
White Hart Lane
Saturday
15.00
(BST)

NORWICH
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Moussa Dembele
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Mark Bunn


Tottenham may have missed out on Joao Moutinho and Hugo Lloris and Clint Dempsey completed moves to the club too late on deadline day but Moussa Dembele could be set to step into the Spurs midfield to replace Luka Modric, who joined Real Madrid.

The visitors to White Hart Lane, Norwich City, were quiet on deadline day but did secure the signing of goalkeeper Mark Bunn from Blackburn Rovers a couple of days before the window shut. He is likely to play second fiddle to England international John Ruddy, however.

WEST BROM
The Hawthorns
Saturday
15.00
(BST)
EVERTON
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

N/A
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

N/A


Both West Brom and Everton were quiet in the lead-up to deadline day and remained so as the window drew to a close.

The Baggies chose not to add to their squad on Friday while David Moyes completed a deal to sign Bryan Oviedo from Copenhagen too late to include him in his team this weekend. Kilmarnock youngster Matthew Kennedy is one for the future for the Toffees.

WIGAN
The DW Stadium
Saturday
15.00
(BST)
STOKE
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

N/A
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Charlie Adam


Stoke bolstered their midfield with the signings of Charlie Adam, Maurice Edu and Steven N'Zonzi on deadline day, and Tony Pulis hopes to include the former in his squad to face Wigan at the DW Stadium.

Edu arrived later on Friday and will not play a part, while Roberto Martinez did not do any business late in the window.

MANCHESTER CITY
The Etihad Stadium
Saturday
17.30
(BST)

QPR
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Scott Sinclair, Richard Wright
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Esteban Granero, Julio Cesar


Roberto Mancini finally saw the transfer window action that he had hoped for on deadline day as five players arrived at the Etihad Stadium, but none are likely to feature from the start.

Scott Sinclair signed in time to play if selected but is likely to be limited to a place among the substitutes, while goalkeeper Richard Wright is unlikely to feature given that Joe Hart and Costel Pantilimon are both fit.

Javi Garcia, Matija Nastasic and Maicon arrived after midday and will not make their debuts just yet. QPR, meanwhile, could hand debuts to Esteban Granero and Julio Cesar, but Stephane Mbia only completed a deal as the window edged closer to shutting.

LIVERPOOL
Anfield
Sunday
13.30 (BST)

ARSENAL
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Nuri Sahin
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

N/A


Perhaps the most mouth-watering fixture of the weekend also happens to be one of the least interesting in terms of new signings, as both Liverpool and Arsenal – to the frustration of their fans – remained silent on deadline day.

Nuri Sahin, though, could be in line for his Reds bow after joining on loan from Real Madrid last week, with Lucas Leiva again sidelined with injury in midfield.

NEWCASTLE
Sports Direct Arena
Sunday
16.00 (BST)

ASTON VILLA
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

N/A
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Jordan Bowery, Joe Bennett


Aston Villa completed the signings of young Football League stars Jordan Bowery, who joined from Chesterfield, and Joe Bennett, who arrived from Middlesbrough, in time for both to feature against Newcastle but the duo may not be immediately installed in the starting line-up.

Christian Benteke was the most significant signing of deadline day for the Villans but he, along with Crewe captain Ashley Westwood, agreed his deal too late to play here. Newcastle, meanwhile, did not make any further moves.

SOUTHAMPTON
St Mary's
Sunday
16.00 (BST)

MAN UNITED
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Emmanuel Mayuka
POTENTIAL DEBUTANTS

Alexander Buttner


Southampton signed Emmanuel Mayuka in time for the Zambia international to make his debut against Manchester United, but marquee purchase Gaston Ramirez and defender Maya Yoshida did not pen deals at St. Mary's early enough.

United did not make any deadline day additions but Alexander Buttner continues to wait for his first appearance, although he is unlikely to unseat Patrice Evra here.
