The transfer deadline day in the Premier League was actually a fairly quiet affair.

The two headline deals were Edinson Cavani joining Manchester United on a free transfer and Thomas Partey swapping Atletico Madrid for Arsenal, while the Red Devils also brought in Alex Telles from Porto.

But, there was plenty of business to keep an eye on further down the table...

Who: Theo Walcott

From: Everton

To: Southampton

Fee: Loan

The prodigal son returns.

No less than 14 years since swapping Southampton for Arsenal, Theo Walcott returned to the Saints on deadline day on loan from Everton.

Who: Raphinha

From: Rennes

To: Leeds

Fee: £17m

Marcelo Bielsa had been keen to add another quick winger to his ranks this summer, with him reportedly initially interested in Ryan Kent of Rangers.

When that didn't materialise, Raphinha of Rennes was targetted, with the Brazilian joining for £17m.

Who: Ruben Loftus-Cheek

From: Chelsea

To: Fulham

Fee: Loan

Ruben Loftus-Cheek wasn't going to get the game time he desired at Stamford Bridge this season and was allowed to leave on loan to Fulham. One stumbling block which did present itself was Loftus-Cheek's astronomical wages, but Chelsea are footing some of the bill for Fulham this season.

Who: Joachim Andersen

From: Lyon

To: Fulham

Fee: Loan

One thing became clear over the opening few Premier League matches - Fulham could be doing with basically a full new defence. However, they've had to settle for one centre-back arrival on deadline day in the form of Lyon's Joachim Andersen, who'll no doubt have his work cut out for him.

Who: Rodrigo Vilca

From: Deportivo Muncipal

To: Newcastle

Fee: £200,000

Not much is known about the 21-year-old Peruvian but his acquisition seemed to excite Newcastle fans. Although not as much as a Saudi Arabian takeover.

Who: Robin Olsen

From: Roma

To: Everton

Fee: Loan

Robin Olsen had the unfortunate job of trying to replace Alisson at Roma and it just didn't work out that way.

Everton have brought him in to provide competition for Jordan Pickford, who has, of course, been prone to an error or two.
