With over 60 days left until this summer's transfer window closes, there's still plenty of signings to be made up and down the Premier League .

After making their first purchase last week with Leicester City goalkeeper Ben Hamer's arrival at the John Smith's Stadium, the Terriers are expected to finalise a deal for Ramadan Sobhi from Stoke City any day now.

Elsewhere, Liverpool have been the most active so far, completing the purchases of Fabinho and Naby Keita and moving closer to a deal for Lyon's Nabil Fekir.

And with just under a week to go, the excitement is building for not only the start of the World Cup but also the publication of next season's football fixtures.

Stick with us here for all the latest news and rumours regarding Town, with the transfer window now open to Premier League clubs.

Signing Out

Well that’s it for another day in what has been a relatively quiet one on the transfer activity front.

But we all know anything could go down at any point which is why we will be back again on Monday morning to bring you all the latest as it happens...

Harry Kane signs new 6-year contract at Spurs

England captain Harry Kane has signed a new deal with Tottenham Hotspur which will keep him at the club until 2024.

The 6-year deal doubles his existing £100,000 and rewards him with a string of bonuses.

All told the contract could be worth £90 million to the 24-year-old.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has been forced to break the club’s pay structure to keep talisman Kane who won the Premier League Golden Boot for three years before Salah won it this season.

Yaya Toure edges closer to Hammers deal

Yaya Toure is in the middle of discussing terms with West Ham United according to the Mail Online.

The Manchester City legend is keen on a reunion with former City boss Manuel Pelligrini who took over at the London Stadium this summer.

But Yaya is unlikely to see West Ham match the £220,000 per week contract he was on at City, which came to an end this summer.

The 35-year-old has been at Fulham’s training ground over the last couple of days, preparing for the Soccer Aid charity game he will play in at Wembley on Sunday.

It’s great to join and I’m happy it’s all gone through. When this opportunity came up, it’s one that I couldn’t turn down. It’s an ambitious Club, the owners are ambitious and everyone wants to push the Club forward.

I hope that I can give lots to the team and the Club. It’s a great place to play football, the fans really get behind the team and the players are fantastic - these are all factors that made me want to sign for this Football Club.

Spurs in for Grealish?

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is set to test crisis club Aston Villa’s insistence they will not sell Jack Grealish for under £40m, report The Telegraph.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has identified the player as a prime summer target and Spurs want to move quickly to take advantage of Villa’s money problems.

The Championship club will have to cash in on Grealish this summer after failure to win promotion to the Premier League left them in a financial mess with Levy believing he can get Grealish for as little as £15m.

Dortmund Signing Speaks of PL Interest...

Borussia Dortmund have signed Danish midfielder Thomas Delaney from Werder Bremen on a four-year contract.

Neither club have revealed the exact finances of the deal but reports in the German media believe Dortmund paid around £17.5 m for the 26-year-old.

‘I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League at some stage and I’ve had offers too... but when Dortmund came calling, I didn’t have to think twice,’ Delaney told Dortmund’s website.

Ramadan Sobhi...

We’re still awaiting news of this deal being concluded after the player had a medical at Canalside at the weekend.

With these things it normally takes a bit of time for the medical reports to be finalised and with a World Cup looming that’s another issue to circumnavigate.

In the meantime, have a look at a Stoke City perspective on the player from Dave Frith, Editor of The Oakcake fanzine.

Nabil Fekir Anfield-bound?

As previously mentioned, Liverpool hope to finalise a deal for Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir in the next 48 hours.

It is believed the club have held positive discussions with the Ligue 1 side and while a fee has not been agreed the France international’s move is edging closer.

Manager Jurgen Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards are keen to get the deal done before France head to Russia - as is national team boss Didier Deschamps- so the next couple of days are critical as the clock ticks down.

Liverpool expect to pay an initial £48.4m plus £4.4m in add ons.
