Liverpool had a Premier League deal sheet accepted for Brazilian Allan Rodrigues de Souza last night, before the end of the transfer deadline.
According to James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo, who so kindly tweeted out the information, the application put forward by the Reds was successful, meaning that Allan is now a Liverpool player.
Deal now done?
There may be some confusion amongst fans, who thought he had signed back on August 1 when it was first reported.

However, it seems as though despite the fact he was training with Brendan Rodgers' side, he wasn’t actually on the Anfield books, until now.
Allan at Liverpool
Last month the Liverpool Echo themselves relayed how Allan would cost the Reds £500,000 from Brazilian side Internacional, and he’s since been pictured in Liverpool training sessions alongside the like of compatriots Lucas and Philippe Coutinho.
Of course fans shouldn’t be expecting to see the 18-year-old in first-team action anytime soon. It’s far more likely he’ll be loaned out for this season, so that the club can give him regular game-time whilst also assessing his abilities further.
Plenty of business
In any case though it’s good news that they were able to tie up a deal before the window slammed shut.
Allan joins the likes of Christian Benteke, Roberto Firmino, James Milner, Danny Ings, Nathaniel Clyne, Joe Gomez and Adam Bogdan in joining Liverpool, with Rodgers having been busy in the summer market.
