A dramatic transfer deadline day saw misfiring Manchester United swap Danny Welbeck for Radamel Falcao.

Falcao’s loan move from Monaco came hot on the heels of Daley Blind’s £13.8m move to United from Ajax.

England striker Welbeck’s £16 million switch to Arsenal caught many by surprise and helped take overall spending in the summer window past the £835 million mark.

Elsewhere, Alvaro Negredo has joined Valencia on loan from Manchester City and Micah Richards has also been allowed to make a temporary move from the Etihad to Fiorentina.

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has gone on loan to Real Madrid.

Hull were the busiest Premier League side on deadline day by signing four players, including Palermo striker Abel Hernandez for a reported club-record £10m and Premier League trio Hatem Ben Arfa, Gaston Ramirez and Mo Diame.

Crystal Palace broke their club record to sign £7m Wigan midfielder James McArthur.

The biggest Premier League deals of this window were as follows:

Angel Di Maria (Real Madrid to Manchester United) £59.7m

Alexis Sanchez (Barcelona to Arsenal) £35m

Diego Costa (Atletico Madrid to Chelsea) £32m

Eliaquim Mangala (FC Porto to Manchester City) £32m

Cesc Fabregas (Barcelona to Chelsea) £30m

Ander Herrera (Athletic Bilbao to Manchester United) £29m

Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea to Everton) £28m

Luke Shaw (Southampton to Manchester United] £27m

Adam Lallana (Southampton to Liverpool) £25m

Dejan Lovren (Southampton to Liverpool) £20m

Lazar Markovic (Benfica to Liverpool) £20m
