The deal was not officially confirmed before the 5pm deadline, but a Premier League ‘deal sheet’ gives them an extra two hours in which to finalise the details of the transfer.

These sheets provide details of the impending transfer and confirm that an agreement has been reached, before providing clubs with extra time in which to submit all the required documentation.

The details required on this sheet are fairly basic. Deal sheets cannot be requested until 3pm on transfer deadline day and then must be submitted, fully completed, by 5pm.

Once received and approved, clubs can then be granted permission to submit all the required transfer paperwork by the 7pm deadline.
