Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert added: "Tom brings big game experience to the club, he's played international football for England and he still has great potential to kick on in his career. There's a lot of good football ahead of him if he performs the way we think he can perform and we're delighted to have been able to bring him in to join the group."

CLEVERLEY JOINS ASTON VILLA - REACTION

The midfielder told the club's official website: "The prospect of working under the manager [Paul Lambert] and Roy [Keane], who were both fantastic midfielders in their playing careers, made the decision to come to Villa an easy one. I'm looking forward to working with them but also the other really good midfield players that the club have, like Fabian Delph, Ashley Westwood and other new lads like Kieran Richardson, Joe Cole and Carlos Sanchez."

ALDERWEIRELD TO SOUTHAMPTON - REACTION

He told the club's official website: "Now, I want to give something back to the club and do all my best to help the team. It’s something that everybody says, but I’m very happy to play in the Premier League. It’s a dream come true. It’s nice to hear that he [manager Ronald Koeman] likes my play. He called me and said that he really wants me to come. A trainer that believes in me is really important."

MAN UTD STATEMENT

A club statement reads: "Manchester United agreed a deal to sign Timothy Fosu-Mensah from Ajax ahead of the transfer deadline. The 16-year-old is a powerful defender who caught the eye at the AEGON Future Cup and is highly regarded in his homeland. Fosu-Mensah still requires an International Transfer Certificate to be processed in order to make his debut for Paul McGuinness' Academy squad, but his versatility and ability mark him out as an excellent addition for the Reds."

DONE DEAL - MAN UTD SIGN DEFENDER!

FINALLY! They have a new defender! Manchester United have announced that a deal was agreed before the deadline to sign Timothy Fosu-Mensah from Ajax. The bad news, however, is that he's only 16 and is unlikely to see the first team for many, many years.

DONE DEAL - NEW DURM CONTRACT

One man going nowhere for the foreseeable future: Erik Durm. The Borussia Dortmund defender - and World Cup winner - has signed a new contract until 2019. He told the club's official website: "Borussia Dortmund have intensively [helped] my development, so that I can be the player I am today. It is natural for me to appreciate this and bind to me to the club. I am totally convinced of the BVB way. I want to be part of it as long as possible."

RECORD SPENDING

Dan Jones, partner in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte, said: "This summer transfer window is one of records. There are a number of factors contributing to this summer's spend, including the showcase for global talent a World Cup provides. However, one of the main drivers of Premier League spending continues to be the increased resources clubs now have as a result of improved broadcast deals."
