Recapping the Unnoticed Premier League Deals on the Last Day

    The summer transfer window for the record book finally came to an end on Friday night as Premier League clubs ended up spending a staggering £2.36bn on new recruits.

    While the likes of Declan Rice and Moises Caicedo may have already completed their own disruptive move earlier in the window, Deadline proved to be another throbbing 24 hour across the country.

    While a host of top clubs struggle to complete their latest signings, the likes of Matheus Nunez and Sofian Amrabat made the most of the headlines throughout the evening.

    Likewise, since Tottenham’s outcast Sergio Reguilon completed a shock loan move to Manchester United, there have been 28 Premier League transfers on the final day.

    Now that the hectic deadline day is officially in the record books, we’ve taken a look at the last few Premier League moves you might have missed amid all the madness.

    Neil Mope – Everton to Brentford, loan

    While Everton could have spent £15m taking Neil Maupe to Goodison Park from Brighton last summer, the 27-year-old had a nightmare in the blue half of Merseyside.

    The former France Under-21 international, who scored just one goal in 29 Premier League appearances last season, has failed to find any stability in his 12-month spell at Everton.

    Since the opening of the summer transfer window, the Toffees have made it clear they are already looking to cash in on the Maupe, with the former Brighton striker completing a shocking return to former club Brentford on the final day.

    Mope scored 41 goals in 95 games for the Bees between 2017 and 2019 and will provide some cover in the absence of attacking talisman Ivan Toni.

    Brentford is currently without an England international due to his eight-month betting ban. Tony is not set to return until early 2024.

    Albert Sambi Lokonga – Arsenal to Luton, loan

    Having made a famous return to the top division this season after enjoying the tale of a championship, Luton is more than aware that they’re in for an uphill battle at heavyweight this time around.

    While the spirits on Rob Edwards’ team may still be on fire, it’s no secret that the Hatters are seen as the frontrunners in the fight for an immediate return to the championship in 2024.

    However, despite losing each of their first three Premier League matches, fans at Kenilworth Road will be thrilled by the arrival of Belgian midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga on deadline.

    On loan from title contenders Arsenal, the 23-year-old made 15 appearances for the Gunners last season before spending the second half of the campaign on loan at Crystal Palace, making nine appearances.

    In total, he made 34 Premier League appearances, 24 of which came in an impressive debut season for the Gunners.

    Luis Sinisterra – Leeds to Bournemouth, loan

    After losing their Premier League status last season and coming under scrutiny, Leeds went through a major transition behind the scenes at Elland Road this summer.

    While Lilywhites may have managed to keep Wilfried Gnonto despite continued speculation over a move to Everton, Daniel Farek’s men had to watch Luis Sinisterra leave the club on the final day.

    The 24-year-old made it clear in the summer that he wanted to forcibly leave Yorkshire after Leeds were relegated from the top flight, while Sinisterra moved to Bournemouth on a season-long loan with his dying breath.

    Sinisterra, 24, who has scored eight goals in 25 appearances for Leeds since joining Leeds last season, was Cherry’s eighth signing this summer.
    The deal includes an option to buy the Colombian, who has scored three goals in seven caps for his country. As part of a season-long loan, Bournemouth player Jadon Anthony completed his own move in the opposite direction.
