>Steve Bruce and Sunderland have gone big and signed Ghana star Asamoah Gyan, on what was a generally dull deadlined day. The North-East team spent the club record fee of £13mil for the Ghanian striker, who missed a penalty that would have put his country through to the World Cup semi-final.

Stoke City were the other big movers, signing Eidur Gudjohnsson, Mark Wilson and Jermaine Pennant. Dave Kitson and Liam Lawrence have though left the club, both joining Portsmouth in the Championship.
