Andy Murray and Rory McIlroy did their best to disrupt the daily grind of the transfer merry-go-round but Celtic pulled a deal out of the bag.

Belgian goalkeeper Logan Bailly is poised to complete a move to the Scottish champions from oddly named Pro League outfit Oud-Heverlee Leuven.

And the Nadir Ciftci saga could soon be at an end with the Hoops matching Dundee United's £1.5m asking price for the forward.

Outside of Scotland, it was a day for moving on bearded midfielders.

Despite being the subject of a registration embargo and unable to field him until January 2016, Barcelona confirmed a deal for Arda Turan from Atletico Madrid.

Andrea Pirlo's time in Serie A is finally at an end as he prepares for a new adventure in the Big Apple with Frank Lampard at New York City FC.

No Pirlo, no party in the city that never sleeps.
