Thomas Partey joins Arsenal in biggest move of Deadline Day

Thomas Partey's move to Arsenal was the most expensive transfer on Deadline Day despite Manchester United completing four new signings.

The day after their 6-1 humiliation to Tottenham, Man Utd signed striker Edinson Cavani, full-back Alex Telles and 18-year-old youngsters Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri. But Chris Smalling left the club for Roma in an £18m move while the long-anticipated push to sign Jadon Sancho failed to materialise.

Arsenal were able to sign Partey after triggering the £45m release clause in the midfielder's contract with Atletico Madrid.

Partey's arrival was accommodated by the departures of Lucas Torreira, who moved in the opposite direction by joining Atletico on loan, and Matteo Guendouzi to Hertha Berlin.

But while Torreira and Guendouzi were moved on, there were fewer than forecast departures from the Emirates.
