The Premier League transfer window may have long since closed but there are still moves to be made across Europe before their transfer deadlines pass.

English clubs may not be able to buy players but they can still sell their men to clubs in leagues where the transfer deadline is still open.

It seems unlikely at this stage, but this means that the likes of Paul Pogba could still be snapped up by Barcelona and Manchester United would not be able to sign a replacement.

There is not long left to get these deals done, though, so clubs will need to get a move on to get any pushed through before the deadlines.
