23.30 BST: Well it's not been the busiest of transfer days, so we'll leave it there tonight. Hopefully some more DONE DEALS tomorrow.
22.51 BST: Tunisia striker Youssef Msakni signed a four-year deal with Qatari club Lekhwiya instead of Arsenal or Lille. "I wanted to play in Qatar, the opportunity was given to me and I took it," Msakni told Sky Sports. "I am looking forward to impressing in that league. Arsenal were also keen but not enough for me to choose them, maybe one day I will be in a very big league in Europe. Lille were interested and wanted me but they did not show the willingness to have me in their club like the Qataris."
22.16 BST: No PSG move for RVP or Andrea Pirlo according to manager Carlo Ancelotti: "Van Persie is not a target of ours, but I think he is for other clubs," he told a press conference. "Pirlo is an interesting player for any club, but I have had the chance to coach him for eight years and that is enough."
21.33 BST: Young Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal has left the Bernabeu to join Bayer Leverkusen. "Today I made an important step in my career, I am now a player of Leverkusen for the next five seasons," Carvajal wrote on his Twitter page. "I hope to improve as a player and be able to return to Madrid in the future, when I am ready to be a part of their first team." No doubt a buy-back clause has been put in his contract.
21.00 BST: Jonathan dos Santos (brother of Spurs' Geovani) will start pre-season with the Barcelona first-team and coach Tito Vilanova will decide whether he stays or goes out on loan.
20.39 BST: DONE DEAL Birmingham City have completed the signing of former Newcastle forward Peter Lovenkrands on a free transfer.
20.29 BST: The BBC say that striker Fabio Borini is likely to become Brendan Rodgers' first signing at Liverpool. The pair worked together at Chelsea, but then Chelsea thought he wasn't good enough and failed to stop him joining Parma in 2011 before he impressed on loan at Roma, who then bought him. Confused? At least if he joins the Reds there won't be any ownership issues to contend with.
20.19 BST: Birmingham goalkeeper Jack Butland insists talk of a summer move is not proving a distraction as the Olympic Games approach. "You can't let it distract you,'' he said. "At the end of the day, it is all rumours until it becomes a necessity and it needs to happen. But for now, I am where I need to be. I need to play games at Birmingham and the rumours can carry on. They are no distraction for me. I know there are rumours but I can't let it affect what I do."
19.44 BST: Eljero Elia's move from Juventus to Werder Bremen has been held up because of a problem terminating his contract in Turin. '"The contract between Juventus and Elia has yet to be terminated. That's why he has not signed with us yet," Bremen director Klaus Allofs told Bild. "It's about a few material things. There's nothing we can do about it to solve this. I don't know whether this is insurmountable."
19.05 BST: Former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein thinks that if Robin van Persie does leave the club then it has to happen quickly. "All I would hope, for the stability of the club, is whether he stays or whether he goes, it happens quickly," he told Sky Sports News. "You don't want to see what happened last year when you had Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas stringing it out. Clubs this week are going back for pre-season training. You want to have a settled squad. I hope that whatever happens with Robin, it happens quickly."
18.39 BST: Millwall winger James Henry has signed an extension to his contract that will keep him at The Den until the summer of 2014.
18.10 BST: How will Roma compete next season? Francesco Totti believes the only way will be to buy more players. "We already have quite a good team, but we could do with some new additions. We need some important signings in order to be able to compete for the Scudetto with Juventus, AC Milan and Inter," Totti stated at a press conference. "I won't go into names, but you definitely need big players if you want to win something. Let's wait and see what happens.
17.35 BST: BREAKING NEWS Roberto Mancini has signed a new deal with Manchester City and will stay at the club until 2017. Earlier he had been linked with the vacant Russia job.
17.17 BST: Former Manchester City and Arsenal goalkeeper Stuart Taylor is training with Reading ahead of the new season according to Sky Sports.
16.44 BST: Blackburn manager Steve Kean must be dreaming, but he seems to think he can keep out-of-contract winger Junior Hoilett at the club. "Junior is out of contract and we've made him a very good offer. It's not dead yet," Kean told BBC Radio Lancashire. "If a club in this country signs him, there will be big compensation. We'd like him still to be here but I'm in the dark a little bit. When a player runs out of contract, you make him a good offer and he doesn't sign, you fear the worst, but we'll just have to wait and see."
16.07 BST: Kasimpasa have signed former Manchester City goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson from PSV Eindhoven on a free transfer.

14.00 BST: Caen striker M'baye Niang is on trial at Arsenal, much to the disapproval of club manager Patrice Garande. The 17-year-old striker is well-known in France, having burst onto the scene last year, but found life tough as a starter last season.
13.40 BST: Manchester United youngster John Cofie could be moving to League One side Sheffield United on loan. The forward, 19, had earlier spent a loan spell at Royal Antwerp in Belgium.
13.40 BST - DONE DEAL: Charlton have signed Jordan Cook following his release by Sunderland. The forward, 22, spent 14 gams on loan at Carlisle last season, notching up four goals, and Addicks manager Chris Powell said: “He's a young player who we feel can play down the middle, behind the main striker and out wide.”
13.36 BST - DONE DEAL: Chievo have secured the signing of AC Milan striker Alberto Paloschi on a further year’s loan deal. The 22-year-old joined the gloriously-nicknamed Flying Donkeys last summer, scoring five goals. A club statement said: “Beautiful news for Chievo - Alberto Paloschi will wear the Gialloblu colours in the 2012-13 campaign.”
13.32 BST: Here’s Brendan Rodgers again, this time reacting to earlier reports that Andy Carroll was interesting AC Milan – but on a loan deal, rather than a permanent basis.
Rodgers – not exactly renowned for the use of a Carroll-style target man in his teams – said: “He's a good player, Andy. He'll always be linked to clubs whether he's here or not. I haven't had anything from them [Milan].”
13.26 BST: Brentford defender Craig Woodman has left Griffin Park after his contract was terminated by mutual consent. The full-back, 29, has been linked with a switch to Exeter City.
13.24 BST - DONE DEAL: Hull City have confirmed the signing of Swiss goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic on a free transfer after seeing off rival interest from fellow Championship side Ipswich.

13.20 BST: The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says he is close to making an addition or two to his squad but, tease that he is, won’t say who his targets are. “There has been a whole raft of players linked with coming to Liverpool, and very few of them are actual targets for us," he said, coyly
13.10 BST: Augsburg have signed former Bayern Munich midfielder Andreas Ottl on a free transfer from Hertha Berlin.
“We are pleased to have signed such an experienced midfielder in Andreas Ottl, who is in his footballing prime,” Augsburg's director of sport, Manfred Paula, told the club's official website. “His quality will strengthen our side.”

10.48 BST: Inter Milan striker Giampaolo Pazzini has said he will leave the club this summer.
The 27-year-old, who has been told he is not in coach Andrea Stramaccioni's plans for next season, told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I will look to work hard in an attempt to change their minds, but I have always been honest and I am being so now, too.”
The Italy international, under contract with Inter until June 2015, is reported to be a target of Sampdoria and Lazio.
10.26 BST: Bayern Munich have denied, rubbished and contemptuously dismissed reports that they have made a move to sign Andrea Pirlo.
Reports in Italy said Pirlo, who starred for the Italians at Euro 2012, had been the subject of a €10 million offer to Juventus by the Bavarians.
But Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told his club’s official website: “FC Bayern have neither made an offer to Juventus, nor have FC Bayern had any contact with the player or his agent.”
09.50 BST: And more on Lovenkrands, who will become Lee Clark's first signing as Birmingham boss if all goes well with his medical.
Lovenkrands, 32, has agreed personal terms on his Bosman free transfer to St Andrew's, a move made possible after the transfer embargo on Birmingham was lifted by the Football League last week.
09.45 BST: More on Chamakh: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Fiorentina have made an offer.
The 28-year-old Morocco international has been linked with a summer move after failing to impress during his second season with the club, scoring only one goal in all competitions.
"Fiorentina requested information on his availability and made an offer," Wenger told the Times.
09.33 BST: Roma say they are expecting to complete the signing of Chievo’s USA midfielder Michael Bradley on a three-year contract this week.

09.15 BST: Cagliari defender Davide Astori has rejected a move to Spartak Moscow, saying he wanted to stay at the Italian club and would “try to do my best and have a starring role next season.”
Astori had looked set to complete a €15 million move, but told the Cagliari website: “I want to thank the Spartak Moscow executives for their consideration, but I will remain in Italy and at Cagliari.”
09.01 BST: Not quite a done deal, but subject to a medical – Birmingham have signed Newcastle forward Peter Lovenkrands on a free transfer. Confirmation of that one should follow fairly soon.
08.25 BST: Good morning from the Stygian dismalness of another English summer day – gloom that has nevertheless been lifted slightly by reports that Silvio Berlusconi has his eye on a new striker for AC Milan... and that the striker in question is Andy Carroll.
The Sun reports that Berlusconi’s son, Pier Silvio, was impressed by Carroll’s contribution to England’s cause during Euro 2012, quoting him as saying: “Milan still has its superstars but I’d like to have Carroll at Milan. I was impressed with his strength and his headed goal against Sweden.”
The paper says a permanent move would be unlikely – Milan aren’t convinced about Carroll’s £35 million price tag and, who knows, may not be alone in that – but could take the striker on loan for the season. Well, you never know.
The same paper says Chelsea have had an offer for Bayer Leverkusen’s Germany forward Andre Schurrle rejected. Bayer said the Blues had tabled a £20 million bid for Schurrle, but they had opted to keep him because “he’s too important for us on the pitch and he also made it clear he is happy to stay with us.” Depressing how old-fashioned money not talking sounds.
And one more from them: Southampton are apparently being linked with Crystal Palace’s excellent winger Wilfried Zaha.
The Mirror says Wigan are looking at Guatemalan Marco Pappa as a replacement for Victor Moses, who continues to be the subject of speculation linking him with Chelsea. Pappa currently plays in the MLS with Chicago Fire.
Meanwhile, new Swansea manager Michael Laudrup is reportedly trying to add to his attacking options by bringing Bristol City winger Albert Adomah to the club (£3 million), while Norwich could offer striker James Vaughan to Birmingham as part of a deal for defender Curtis Davis.
The Mail “understands” that Liverpool have failed in a bid for Real Madrid midfielder Liverpool Esteban Granero, while Fiorentina are reported to have made another bid for Arsenal’s Moroccan international striker Marouane Chamakh.
