Worth the wait: Gareth Bale

With the transfer deadline fast approaching, clubs scramble to complete deals and things can get pretty chaotic to say the least.

With teams holding out for the best possible deal, transfers often go down to the wire. We’ve earlier listed the ten worst deadline day moves but it’s not all doom and gloom.

Just ask Rafael van der Vaart. The Dutchman featured in our Ten Worst list but also makes an appearance this time around for his earlier deadline day move from Real Madrid to Tottenham in 2010 which proved to be a hit.

Like him, there are several other last-ditch transfers which turned out to be hugely successful.

Which transfer do you think was the best out of our top ten?

IN PICS: Ten deadline day flops

Fernando Torres: The poster boy for deadline day flops?

With the transfer deadline fast approaching, clubs scramble to complete deals and things can get pretty chaotic to say the least.

With teams holding out for the best possible deal transfers often go down to the wire. Meanwhile, others push the panic button and make a purchase in haste which can be a recipe for disaster.

Fernando Torres is something of a poster boy for deadline day signings that failed dramatically after his £50 million move from Liverpool to Chelsea in 2011 resulted in the Spaniard scoring just 45 times in 172 appearance for the Londoners.

However, there are several other deadline day recruits who crashed and burned and here, we take a look at 10 of the worst.

On the move?: Joao Mario, Benjamin Stambouli, Ryan Mason, Salvatore Sirigu.

Besides making signings, clubs around Europe are also in the process of clearing out their squads and PSG are no exception.

With Salvatore Sirigu and Benjamin Stambouli on the way out, the deals should free up space and funds for further recruitment.

Sport360 rounds-up the day’s major transfer stories.

Salvatore Sirigu, PSG to Sevilla, loan (Done Deal)

Sevilla were rumoured to be interested in taking Manchester City outcast Joe Hart but have instead sealed a season-long loan seal for Italian Sirigu. The 29-year-old has dropped down the pecking order in Paris with Kevin Trapp the preferred No1.

Benjamin Stambouli, PSG to Schalke, €8.5 million (Done Deal)

PSG boss Unai Emery’s summer clear out has continued apace with the 26-year-old joining the Bundesliga outfit having signed a four-year deal. He is the second midfielder to have joined Schalke this week following the loan arrival of Nabil Bentaleb from Tottenham.

Joao Mario, Sporting to Inter, loan (Fee Agreed)

Internazionale are close to significantly bolstering their midfield with Portuguese star Mario. The 23-year-old is more than just a talented prospect and will make an immediate impact as either a No8 or 10. The Serie A side are also closing in on Brazil’s Gabriel Barbosa.

Ryan Mason, Tottenham to Hull, €9.3 million (In Talks)

The Tigers face stiff competition from Sunderland for the midfielder’s signature with the 25-year-old seeing his first-team opportunities at White Hart Lane blocked by Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and new signing Victor Wanyama.

Simone Zaza, Juventus to West Ham, €28 million (Fee Agreed)

Their depleted forward line ultimately saw them knocked out of the Europa League on Thursday and boss Slaven Bilic has moved to bolster his attacking options. The Italy international is due to have a medical, just don’t expect him to take pens anytime soon.
