Goodnight - Thanks for hanging around with us at GMS, we hope you're happy with the business your particular club has done. On to January!

00:00 - Just to finish the day off, Everton have confirmed that Manchester United have signed Marouane Fellaini for a fee of £27.5million.

The Toffees also confirm that Victor Anichebe has joined West Brom for a fee rising to £6million, while they secured the signing of James McCarty from Wigan Athletic in a £13million deal.

Gareth Barry and Romelu Lukaku have also signed on season-long loan deals, which will be considered a good final day for the Goodison Park club.

23:20 - It seems Manchester United got their man, with Marouane Fellaini reportedly joining from Everton for £27.5million, while Independent reporter Ian Herbert is saying David Moyes has captured Real Madrid full-back Fabio Coentrao on loan for the season.

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku will join Everton on a season-long loan, he has confirmed on his Twitter account.

23:00 - And so it is over! The transfer window is shut and we will be hanging around for a little while longer to see if any confirmation trickles out later.

22:32 - There we have it - Arsenal's £42.5million signing of Mesut Özil from Real Madrid is official.

22:16 - Spanish journalist Guillem Balague says the Manchester United deal for Ander Herrera is off and there is a suggestion people said to be representing the Premier League champions may not have been authorised to do so.

Meanwhile, BBC Sport's David Ornstein claims Arsenal will announce the record signing of Mesut Özil very very soon.

21:46 - Sorry for the delay, bit of a technical glitch. There's been a fair bit of news. According to John Cross of The Mirror, Demba Ba won't be going to Arsenal and the Gunners will not be doing anymore business, though there is yet to be any confirmation of the Özil deal.

Manchester United reportedly have had a €40million bid for Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, while there is no further news on Fellaini and Herrera.

However, promising young midfielder Nick Powell has moved to Wigan Atheltic on a season-long loan deal.

20:08 - Times reporter Tony Barrett is reporting that Marouane Fellaini has handed in a transfer request at Everton to force through his move to Manchester United.

Elsewhere, Sky Sports News are now saying that Tottenham were not actually in for Demba Ba. There is plenty of Deadline Day confusion about.

19:50 - Sky Sports News report that Chelsea have rejected advances from Arsenal and Spurs to take Demba Ba on loan and have agreed terms with another Premier League club, but the player wants Champions League football.

They also claim Romelu Lukaku could be on his way to Everton in another loan move.

19:28 - Interesting news out of Spain: John Cross of the Mirror says press in that country are reporting that Ander Herrera has agreed a five-year contract to move to Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Liverpool fans concerned about Luis Suarez's future will be encouraged by comments in Uruguay where he has said he is staying at Anfield.

19:05 - With four hours to go, Arsenal have confirmed the loan signing of Viviano.

Peter Odemwingie's agent has told Sky Sports that the Nigerian is set to join Cardiff City, while the BBC are claiming Everton's Victor Anichebe could be replacing him at West Brom.

18:35 - More interesting Tottenham rumours: Sky Italia are reporting that Chelsea have turned down an offer of a swap deal with Fernando Torres and Emmanuel Adebayor. Remember the Togo striker played under Jose Mourinho on loan at Real Madrid a couple of seasons ago.

18:23 - More Arsenal news. Daily Mail reporter Dominic King claims the Gunners made a tentative enquiry for Barcelona's Javier Mascherano - they were told to forget about it.

Elsewhere, Aston Villa confirm the signing of Czech Republic international striker Libor Kozak from Lazio.

18:05 - BREAKING! Palermo have confirmed goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano has joined Arsenal on loan for the rest of the season, with an option to buy. Still waiting for Özil confirmation, however.

17:59 - Portuguese journalist @_GoncaloLopes has claimed that Everton will not be signing Fernando from FC Porto.

He was suggested as a possible replacement for Manchester United bound Marouane Fellaini - could that scupper the deal?

Also, Stoke City confirm they have signed Steven Ireland on a season-long loan from Aston Villa.

17: 40 - Hello and good evening, Brendan Simpson here taking over the deadline day live blog from Pete South, who has gone off for a well deserved lie down - you can click here to see Pete's sterling work throughout the day.

I will be here keeping you up to date with all the latest whispers doing the rounds and will let you know of any confirmed deals as things become more clear during the final hours.

Biggest rumours of the day so far are probably Arsenal's possible record £42million transfer of Mesut Özil from Real Madrid and Manchester United reportedly activating the buyout clause of talented young Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera.
