Transfer deadline day round-up video: Radamel Falcao joins Manchester United as Arsenal complete Danny Welbeck swoop
Video: The Independent guides you through the main stories from the last day of the summer transfer window.
As the rumour mills finally came to an end after a summer of non-stop gossip churning, Premier League clubs had spent a new record of £835m over the course of the transfer window.
On Monday itself, clubs in the top tier spent £85m.
Clearly the biggest news of deadline day was the introduction of Radamel Falcao at Manchester United on a season-long loan deal worth around £20m. Falcao said last night that playing for “one of the truly great teams” like Manchester United was a lifetime’s ambition.
Meanwhile, Arsenal poached out-of-favour United striker Danny Welbeck on an apparent five-year deal for £17m. Another United striker leaving the club in the wake of Falcao's arrival was Javier Hernandez, who joined Real Madrid on loan.
United also added Daley Blind to their ranks for £14m on a four-year deal from Ajax. In total, new United manager Louis van Gaal spent just over £150m in the transfer window.
