TRANSFER WINDOW DEADLINE

Today is the last day of the FIFA transfer window. Normally the window closes on August 31st, but since the 31st fell on a Sunday this year, the window is extended until Monday September 1st.

Last Minute Completed Transfers:

Michael Bradley: Young American midfielder was sold to German side Monchengladbach by Heerenveen yesterday. Bradley had an outstanding season in the Dutch league last year and had been tipped to be making a move to a bigger league. Most expected Bradley to get picked up by a much larger team due to his club and national team form. Everton, Blackburn, and Middlesbrough of the Premier League were rumored to be interested in Bradley. In my opinion Monchengladbach is a good move for a young player. The Bundesliga is a top tier European league but not quite as fast or physical as the premier league. I think Bradley will have an easier time adjusting and get starting minutes sooner rather than later.

Quaresma to Inter Milan from FC Porto

Seol Kim Hyeon to Hull from Fulham
