    Here's more on Marc Cucurella from SunSport's Tom Barclay.

    Cucurella, 23, can play at left-back, left wing-back and left midfield and predominantly provide competition for Solly March, who himself recently signed a new contract.

    The former Barcelona youth player becomes Albion’s third senior signing of the window following the arrivals of midfielder Enock Mwepu and goalkeeper Kjell Scherpen.

    Albion boss Graham Potter said: "We have been keen to bring Marc to the club, and we are really pleased to finally welcome him here and are excited to begin working with him.

    "He has had a fantastic education in the youth teams at Barcelona and he has gone onto make a real impression in La Liga and within the national set up. He is a versatile player, and he will add competition and options to the squad.”

    NELSON GOING DUTCH

    Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson is set to sign for Feyenoord on a season-long loan and is undergoing a medical.

    The Dutch outfit turned their attentions to Nelson after a move for Manchester United’s Amad Diallo fell through.

    Arsenal academy graduate Nelson spent time on loan with Hoffenheim in the 2018/19 season.

    He featured regularly for the Gunners the following term but has struggled for regular game time ever since.

    ANGUISSA OUT

    SunSport's Tom Barclay reports Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa is in Italy undergoing his medical ahead of a loan move to Napoli.

    The Fulham midfielder, 25, is set to join the Serie A outfit for the season with the possibility of turning the deal permanent for £14.6million.

    It remains to be seen if Anguissa's imminent departure will see Fulham go back in for Swansea's Matt Grimes.

    Swans rejected a £2.5m bid from the Cottagers for Grimes over the weekend.

    And while Marco Silva remains a fan of the former Exeter man, 26, the Championship table-toppers could stick with what they have.

    MORIBA MOVE

    Barcelona man Ilaix Moriba has arrived in Germany to undergo a medical with RB Leipzig, according to Sky Sports.

    The 18-year-old midfielder is out of contract at Camp Nou next summer and has opted against extending his stay with the Catalan giants.

    Instead the highly rated youngster will join Bundesliga side Leipzig in a deal worth just £5million.

    NUNO REUNION

    Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo is eyeing a move for his former player Ruben Neves.

    According to journalist Pedro Almeida the Portuguese midfielder is 'negotiating a long-term contract with Tottenham.'

    Right-back Sterling said: “I knew there was interest a couple of weeks ago and I’m happy to be here now.

    “I feel in the best shape of my life, and this is the test that I need. The gaffer has put his trust in me and hopefully I can repay that trust.”

    HARRY GOING NOWHERE

    SunSport’s Duncan Wright reports Harry Winks is almost certain to be staying at Tottenham after the arrival of Nuno Espirito Santo breathed new life into his career at his boyhood club.

    England midfielder Winks had been left out in the wilderness under former boss Jose Mourinho and feared having to move on to get first team football.

    But Winks has impressed Santo since the former Wolves manager arrived in North London and is now a fixture in his matchday squads.

    The 25-year-old has always wanted to stay at Spurs as long as he was in contention and unless there is any dramatic late change of heart from the club he will remain.

    'STILL HOPEFUL'

    Borussia Dortmund are 'still hopeful' of a loan move for Callum Hudson-Odoi.

    According to Sky Sports reporter Max Bielefeld the 20-year-old is keen to seal a move to Germany in order to get more first team action.

    But the Blues are reportedly reluctant to let the academy graduate leave.

    And with the German transfer window set to close at 5pm (UK time), progress on that deal will have to be made quickly.

    FIVE YEAR PLAN

    Juventus have revealed the breakdown of Cristiano Ronaldo's £12.8million move to Manchester United.

    Ronaldo, 36, could cost United a further £6.8m if he meets certain performance objectives.

    And the Red Devils will still be paying Juventus for the superstar by the time he reaches 41, according to BBC Sport's Simon Stone.

    That is because United have split the payment to Juventus over five years.

    MOYES DELIGHTED

    David Moyes has been speaking about West Ham’s capture of Croatia international Nikola Vlasic.

    The attacking midfielder has joined the Hammers in a £25m move from CSKA Moscow.

    Moyes told the club’s official website: “I’m delighted to welcome Nikola to West Ham.

    "I’ve been watching Nikola improve over recent seasons. He’s got a good goals and assists record during that time.

    “He’s also a Croatia international with experience and still being only 23, I feel there’s more to come from him. 

    “I was really impressed with how determined Nikola was to become a West Ham player. It’s that hunger and ambition that fits with what we’re trying to build here at the club.”

    CHRISTIE CHASE

    Championship side Bournemouth are the favourites to sign Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie.

    According to Sky Sports the 26-year-old – who is a free agent on January 1 – has rejected a new contract offer from the Glasgow giants.

    And Burnley and Bournemouth have both been credited with having an interest in the Scotland international.

    GUNNERS TURN TO JAPANESE

    Arsenal are working on a deal to sign Takehiro Tomiyasu from Bologna, according to The Athletic.

    The Japan international can play both centre-half and right-back, with the latter a position Arsenal are keen to strengthen.

    Arsenal are not the only Premier League club to show interest in Tomiyasu.

    Tottenham also enquired about the 22-year-old earlier in the window, but their pursuit of Emerson Royal looks to have opened the door for Arsenal.

    Tomiyasu made 31 Serie A appearances for Bologna last season but has featured just once this term.

    Hector Bellerin’s potential exit from Arsenal to Real Betis would help free up space for the arrival of Tomiyasu.

    NO GO

    SunSport's Duncan Wright reports Jesse Lingard is almost certain to remain at Manchester United until at least January after West Ham secured the £25.7million capture of Nikola Vlasic.

    The Hammers pushed through the five-year deal for the 23-year-old Croatian as the player David Moyes wanted to strengthen his attacking options at the London Stadium.

    It is understood there had been a late conversation with Moyes and Lingard over the England star returning to East London following the success of his loan spell with the club last season.

    But Linagrd, 28, is still wanted at United by boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now that Daniel James is on his way to Leeds in a deadline day deal.

    And West Ham decided not to wait around for a late change of mind in case they got caught out, so completed the deal for Vlasic which could rise to £33m if add-ons are met.

    Having already splashed out £29.8m on Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma, there is no money left for Moyes to make another permanent signing during the current window.

    But there may be some finances available for a loan move, and Moyes is considering options for a left-sided player to provide much-needed strength in depth.

    CAV A DAY OFF

    Edinson Cavani has reportedly been offered to Barcelona in a shock transfer twist.

    According to Mundo Deportivo, Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival in Manchester means Cavani's future at the club is in doubt.

    But the Spanish outlet claim any potential deal for the 34-year-old is a difficult one.

    Cash-strapped Barcelona are desperately short of funds and have already signed Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia and Memphis Depay this summer.

    SOLSKJAER SPEAKS

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken after Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Manchester United has been officially confirmed.

    He said: “You run out of words to describe Cristiano. He is not only a marvellous player, but also a great human being

    “To have the desire and the ability to play at the top level for such a long period requires a very special person.

    “I have no doubt that he will continue to impress us all and his experience will be so vital for the younger players in the squad.

    “Ronaldo’s return demonstrates the unique appeal of this club and I am absolutely delighted he is coming home to where it all started.”

    CRIS PITCH

    According to ESPN the Red Devils pitched a deal Cristiano Ronaldo that included 'completing unfinished business at Old Trafford and writing a new chapter rather than trying to relive the past.'

    Technical Director Darren Fletcher is said to be behind the pitch, while Sir Alex Ferguson, Bruno Fernandes, Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand were all driving forces in making the deal possible.

    CR7 has been officially announced as a United player this morning, putting pen to paper on a two-year deal with the option for a further 12 months.

    The 36-year-old is set to make his second United debut on September 11 as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side take on Newcastle.

    MAITLAND-NILES STAYING PUT

    It’s not been a great few days for Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

    After seeing his move to Everton blocked, the Mirror reports that the star has been told he won’t be allowed to train with Arsenal’s first team.

    The England international is desperate to join the Toffees and took to Instagram to make his feelings known.

    “All I want to do is go where I’m wanted & where I’m going to play @Arsenal,” the 24-year-old wrote.

    However, it appears Maitland‑Niles will now be staying put and has also been banished to train with the Under-23s.

    “It’s amazing to finally get it done and just concentrate on looking forward and what the future may hold.

    “I’m in a different place of course, as a player and as a person, from when I first walked in. I’ve learned and grown a lot over my time here, and I’ve got to thank a lot of people for that.

    “I’ve loved every minute of it, even when I look back at the tough times, I was still enjoying being a part of this football club. The longer I can do that, the better for me really. I want to be here as long as possible, I’ve always said that.

    “To continue this journey is incredible for me and my family, and I hope the fans and the club feel the same way.”

    Negotiations are also ongoing with star man Mohammed Salah regarding a new contract.
