Leicester City and Crystal Palace were the big winners for the day in terms of transfer activities as we saw three major deals getting completed today.
Starting off Alan Pardrew has added another attacker to his ranks in Sunderland’s Connor Wickham.
England U-21 striker was signed for a fee of 9million. Wickham was never given enough time at Sunderland and he could really thrive under the astute guidance of Alan Pardrew, who knows how to get the best out of his strikers.

Moving on, Claudio Ranieri has started showing his understanding of the market and how to get right players at the best price possible. The Foxes are living to their nick-names as they completed two master full signings today.
Starting with defense, Leicester signed Atalanta defender Yohan Benalouane £5.6m move and they also completed a £5.6m move for Caen midfielder N’Golo Kanté.

These two would certainly make Leicester one formidable side which not many team would be too keen on facing next season.
There are plenty of deals still to be wrapped up by the Premier League clubs. Most noticiable is Sunderland’s pursuit of French midfield general Yan M’villa, who could move to the Premier League from Russian side Rubin Kazan.
Liverpool’s attempt in signing Adama Traore has seen a big push after the winger was reported to have landed in England ahead of his medical.
