The Everton striker Moise Kean has returned to Juventus on a two-year loan that will become a permanent deal subject to certain conditions being met.
Juventus said they were paying a €7m (£6m) loan fee and that a €28m permanent deal had been agreed to take effect after the 2022-23 season, with a possible €3m in add-ons to follow.
The 21-year-old Kean joined Everton from Juventus in 2019 and scored four goals in 39 appearances for the Premier League club. He had a successful loan loan at Paris Saint-Germain last season and had been linked with a move back there before Lionel Messi’s arrival.
Another striker in line to move on deadline day is Celtic’s Odsonne Édouard, who is due in London to sign for Crystal Palace, subject to a medical. A fee of about £15.5m has been agreed and the 23-year-old has settled personal terms.
Édouard played under Palace’s new development coach Saïd Aïgoun in Paris Saint-Germain’s youth sides and had one season left on his contract. It is understood PSG are due a cut of the fee for a player who spent seven years with them before moving to Celtic.
Palace also held talks with Sassuolo over the former Chelsea forward Jérémie Boga but were not willing to pay the €20m asking price.
Jordan Henderson has signed a new contract with Liverpool, understood to run to 2025. He is the sixth senior player to extend his contract in the last few weeks after Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Alisson, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson. “It’s amazing to finally get it done and just concentrate on looking forward,” the 31-year-old midfielder told the club’s website.
Burnley have signed the Wales defender Connor Roberts from Swansea on a four-year deal.
