The rush is on… With just a few days to go until the end of the January transfer window, clubs are scrambling for last minute additions as they attempt to bolster their squads for the rest of the season.

Sport360 brings you latest news on some of the latest big transfers.


JOLEON LESCOTT (Unattached to Sunderland)

DONE DEAL – Free

Davis Moyes is sticking to what he knows by bringing in defender Lescott on a free, a player he worked with for three years at Everton. Lescott was released by AEK Athens in November and is the seventh former player of Moyes to join him in the north east.

ADRIAN RAMOS (Dortmund to Granada)
DONE DEAL – Loan

With Thomas Tuchel settled on a more youthful approach, the 31-year-old Colombian forward has moved to Spain until the end of the season. Ramos has started four league games this season and should transfer to a Chinese club in the summer.

LEON BAILEY (Genk to Leverkusen)
NEW TARGET – €20m (Dh78.9m)

Bayer coach Roger Schmidt has confirmed the club’s interest in the Jamaican winger, 19, who was left out of Genk’s matchday squad on Monday. Schmidt said: “He’s got a lot of pace, he’s technically skilled, and someone we are looking at in the long run.”

LUIS HERNANDEZ (Leicester to Malaga)
DONE DEAL – £1.7m (Dh7.8m)

Just six months after joining the Premier League champions on a free transfer from Sporting Gijon, the 27-year-old defender has returned to Spain. Hernandez made just nine appearances for the Foxes and struggled to settle in Leicester.

GONCALO GUEDES (Benfica to PSG)
FEE AGREED – €25m (Dh98.7m)

Young Portuguese forward Guedes, 20, was in Paris last night to complete his transfer to the French champions. PSG may possess huge resources but outside of Edinson Cavani (20) and Lucas (6) no player has more than two goals in Ligue 1 this term.
