2. Watford add another midfielder
Watford have moved to strengthen their midfield with the addition of Abdoulaye Doucoure from French Ligue 1 side Rennes. The 23 year old has signed a four and a half year deal before immediately being loaned out to Spanish side Granada for the rest of the season. The Hornets wrote on Twitter: "We're delighted here at #watfordfc to announce the signing of Abdoulaye Doucoure from Ligue 1 club Rennes. Welcome!" Hardly much of a welcome when they pushed him straight out of the door. Watford chief executive Scott Duxbury said on the club's official website: "The opportunity to sign Abdoulaye Doucoure now was one we wanted to act upon, given our long-standing interest in the player. He is very much part of Watford's future plans, and in the time between now and pre-season he'll be experiencing high-level competitive football in Spain."


3. Rhoys Wiggins returns to Bournemouth again
Welsh left back Rhoys Wiggins has returned, again, to Bournemouth. "Wiggins returns to Vitality Stadium after previously spending two loan spells with Bournemouth before signing a permanent deal in 2010," read a statement published on the Cherries' official website. The 28 year old has signed an 18 month contract after a £182,000 fee was agreed between Sheffield Wednesday and the Cherries. Wiggins began his career with Crystal Palace, who loaned him to Bournemouth in 2009. He then moved to Norwich City, who also loaned him to the Cherries, in 2010. Then he joined Bournemouth on a free from the Canaries, only to leave for Charlton Athletic a year later.

4. Forest free up some space for incomings
Nottingham Forest had been struggling to make any signings, with Dutch midfielder Kyle Ebicilio's loan blocking up wages and a squad place. The club have been working hard to cancel his loan from FC Twente, but had been scuppered initially after thinking the deal was done. It is being reported in Holland that they have finally sorted out a move for him to go out on loan to ADO Den Haag, also in Holland.


5. Perotti heads to Rome
AS Roma have moved to beat the transfer deadline and pick up the loan signing of Argentine winger Diego Perotti from Genoa. The 27 year old is on loan for the rest of the season, but Roma have the option to make the deal permanent for £6.8m. Perotti is probably better known for his time in Spanish football with Sevilla. Perotti said: "This is a very important step in my career. I'm glad to have joined a great team like Roma." Roma head coach Luciano Spalletti added: "Diego Perotti has joined and he can play his part. He can operate in several positions."

6. Mancini gets ban
Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini has received a one match ban after Serie A's disciplinary tribunal said on Monday that Mancini "made a derogatory remark to the fourth official when he was removed and then addressed the spectators with an insulting gesture". Mancini was also given a fine of 5,000 Euros. Mancini was dismissed for dissent following a challenge between Inter striker Eder and AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. The 51 year old believed his side should have been awarded a penalty for the challenge. His offensive language towards a TV presenter was not mentioned in the tribunal's report, despite it being public during an after match interview.


7. Celtic make second deadline day signing
Colin Kazim-Richards, the bad boy Turkish international, has become Celtic's second signing of deadline day, following on from Manchester City youngster Patrick Roberts' arrival at the Scottish champions. Kazim-Richards has signed a two and a half year deal from Feyenoord, who were keen to offload him after he threatened a journalist. The incident with the journalist was not the only time the forward got into hot water, having got into an argument with fans after being substituted, picked up a four match ban for a sending off for swearing at the referee then lied to his club at the time, Fenerbahce, about his whereabouts when stories emerged about him being out on the town. Fener denied the story via an official statement, only to be left red faced when pictures emerged of him out that night. After he returned to English football on loan with Blackburn Rovers, he ended up in trouble over a homophobic gesture made to Brighton & Hove Albion fans, which led to police charges and a conviction.

8. Marseille boss admits Thauvin was a surprise to him
Olympique Marseille boss Michel has told The Times that he was surprised by the return of Florian Thauvin on loan from Newcastle United. Michel only took charge of the club after Thauvin left, he admitted he was not a player that he asked the club to bring in. He said:"Thauvin? I did not ask, but good player is welcome. He is an interesting player, but I repeat, I did not ask. Thauvin has a very good level, I did not think he could come back after four months. I asked for a scorer. But the president did his job." Could the scorer be Steven Fletcher from Sunderland? Could Fletcher even be considered as a goal scorer?


9. Spurs youngster gets two extensions at once
21 year old Tottenham Hotspur youngster Grant Ward has done a double extension. Ward has extended his current loan deal with Rotherham United until the end of the season and signed a contract extension with Spurs which takes him up to 2018.

10. Yaya Sanogo is a go go
Arsenal's young French striker Yaya Sanogo has returned from his loan spell with Ajax, after the Amsterdam club ended the deal early. He made just three appearances for the Dutch side, and failed to score for them. His return to the Gunners was short-lived however, as they quickly send him out on loan for the rest of the season to fellow London side Charlton Athletic.
