Kiko had this to say: "In theory I was going to be an important player for Barca, but not even for one day were they concerned about me. My objective now is to return to what I was before going to Barça. They have sunk my spirits. They ruined my morale because I was coming from playing every game with Hercules and they changed everything for me. Last year I had to play with them, but they never even called me for one Copa [Del Rey] game, or brought me to train with the first team. I have always been for Madrid, I always respected Barca, but since I was a kid me, and my family, have been Madrid fans."

Someone was excited when he signed for Barca to make this video:

11.42 BST: report that Arsenal have tabled a formal offer for Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria, believed to be in the region of £25.6million. However, Real Madrid are reluctant to sell before Gareth Bale is signed, and Di Maria doesn't want to leave.

Alex, who turns 21 next October 15, made his debut with Madrid’s first team with Jose Mourinho on the bench. An international with the Spanish national team’s underage sides, he was European U-19 champions in 2011, and selected golden boot in the competition. With this signing, RCD Espanyol reinforces the centre of the pitch with a footballer with a lot of talent and outstanding potential, who is very excited about his arrival at the blanquiazul first team."

11.06 BST: If Spurs bring in these five players, then sell Adebayor and bring in Javier Hernandez (as has been speculated earlier) then it must be one of the best transfer dealings of all time. Quite remarkable stuff. The best part for Spurs is that with Bale selling for so much, they have spent very little of their own money on such great acquisitions. Kudos Daniel Levy et al. But it's not done yet.

11.02 BST: DONE DEAL! Malaga have finally sealed the loan capture of Fiorentina forward Mounir El Hamdaoui. The ex-Spurs striker made his name playing in the Netherlands with the likes of Ajax and AZ Alkmaar. Fiorentina snapped him up in last season, and now the 29-year-old moves on in a loan deal to Malaga, with the option to buy.

10.45 BST: Medicals booked for Eriksen, Chiriches, and Lamela. Spurs fans must be over the moon.

10.34 BST: Kazakhstan -born German youngster Alexander Merkel's agent says his client is unlikely to stay at Udinese for this season. The 21-year-old hasn't settled well in Italy, despite signing for the club from Genoa, where he caught the eye somewhat.

10.16 BST: Fabio Coentrao is still stuck in limbo, having not played a minute all season, and could be running out of options too. Marca say Tottenham, Chelsea and Monaco are his current suitors. Monaco getting him on final day of window looks pretty likely.

09.50 BST: Manchester City target Martin Demichelis was on Atletico Madrid's bench last night, for the Super Cup match with Barcelona, despite Marca reporting that a €5million move to Man City was already done. This one seems to be dragging on a bit, but it does look like a deal will be struck before deadline day on Monday.

09.33 BST: The Daily Mail has a report on the Alvaro Vadillo's potential transfer to Spurs as mentioned earlier. They report that Tottenham's spending spree shows no sign of slowing as Andre Villa-Boas targets £17million "new Ronaldo."

09.15 BST: So Samuel Eto'o is really set to complete his transfer to Chelsea from Anzhi Makhachkala, according to widespread reports in the British media. He will become their fourth striking option alongside Fernando Torres, Demba Ba, and Romelu Lukaku. It does seem as thought Ba will be heading back to Newcastle on loan though. FULL STORY HERE.

08.58 BST: Marca's front cover. They are finally satisfied with the whole Gareth Bale saga. Now we wait for the obligatory keepy-uppys to seal the deal at the unveiling.

08.45 BST: Spanish journalist Goncalo Lopes gives us a little teaser. Legitimacy is unclear at this point. Initial thoughts are Alvaro Vadillo of Real Betis, due to previous links.

08.40 BST: Eren Derdiyok, 25, had hoped to return to Hoffenheim team training, but a court turned down a restraining order. The Switzerland international had been demoted into the "training group II" with the likes of former Germany keeper Tim Wiese. The Switzerland star, hoping to make it to Brazil 2014, could still make a switch to Hamburg or Bayer Leverkusen, who are both interested in taking the unlucky Hoffenheim striker on loan. However Hoffenheim want €500,000 and that is too much for all clubs, along with his wages of €1.7million a year.

08.22 BST: The Daily Star reports that Samuel Eto'o has rejected Spurs to join Chelsea in a £6.9million deal, with the former Barcelona star to be unveiled as a Chelsea player today.

06.06 BST: According to the Mirror, there could be a reunion on Tyneside with Newcastle in talks of sealing a return for Demba Ba from Chelsea. Ba has been pushed down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge and now with the arrival of Brazilian Willian, may look for a move back to Alan Pardew’s side.

04.22 BST: The Mirror is claiming Tottenham are preparing to make a move for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez. But Spurs - who have splashed the cash this summer - will have to pay £15 million for the Mexico international.

Manchester United just won't take 'no' for an answer. The Premier League champions are back with an improved £38 million bid for Everton duo Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines. But according to the Mirror, not everyone is happy about it. United boss David Moyes angered many inside Goodison Park when he bid £28 million - an amount that was described as 'nonsense' - for his former charges. But Moyes is desperate to bring the two players to Old Trafford and has returned with an increased offer. Problem is, Moyes only increased the bid by £10 million, and that again has set fire to Everton officials' anger. However, reports are suggesting Everton will allow Fellaini to move to the champions, but will stand in the way of any attempt to let Baines leave.

The reunions just will not stop at Stamford Bridge. After Jose Mourinho returned to Chelsea, and in the process brought Michael Essien back to the club, the stage is set for another joining of old friends with The Guardian and the Daily Mail reporting that Samuel Eto'o will reform his partnership with Mourinho in the Premier League. Eto'o and Mourinho had great success together at Italian club Inter Milan, crowned by lifting the Champions League trophy in 2010 and The Guardian is claiming the Cameroon international will sign a 12-month contract with the club. Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports that Eto'o will take a £10 million-a-year pay-cut to re-join Mourinho.

Finally, Stoke City aren't done with the summer transfer window with The Telegraph reporting that manager Mark Hughes has tabled an offer for Werder Bremen striker Aaron Hunt. However, there are fears the deal will not eventuate with the German international said to be unsure over a move to the Britannia Stadium. Stoke have already seen a move for another German-based striker - Hannover's Mame Biram Diouf - collapse by the wayside, but with Werder Bremen already agreeing to a £2.5 million fee, it's just now up to Hughes to convince Hunt that Stoke is the right move. However, Stoke is also scouting Rennes forward Mevlut Erdinc.
