The Transfer Window has finally closed until January. That was fun, wasn't it?

French midfielder Moussa Sissoko was the most expensive player bought on the final day. The 27-year-old left Newcastle United to move to Tottenham Hotspur on a five-year deal.

His £30million transfer fee is expected to be paid gradually over six separate £5million instalments.

Jeff Hendrick was the only Irish player to join a Premier League club on Wednesday. The midfielder left Derby County to join Burnley in a club-record fee.

Hendrick will be expected to slot into Burnley's midfield when he returns from the international break.

Islam Slimani has joined champions Leicester City in a club-record fee of just under £30million. The former Sporting Lisbon star is an Algerian international, and will join forces once more with Riyad Mahrez at the King Power Stadium.

One of the most surprising moves of the final day was that of David Luiz's to Chelsea. The Brazilian defender has rejoined the club from Paris Saint-Germain.

The 29-year-old only left the club two years ago, but has now rejoined, with Antonio Conte in charge.

Hal Robson-Kanu was one of the stars of Euro 2016, but he left it late to find a club. The striker, who left Reading in the summer moved up to the Premier League and has joined West Brom.
