Stoke City forward Bojan Krkic returned to La Liga on a one-year loan deal with Alaves on Thursday. After spells at Roma, AC Milan and Ajax, he joined Stoke in 2014.
However, he has struggled to hold down a regular starting place under Mark Hughes in recent seasons and also spent the second half of last season on loan at German side Mainz.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain left Arsenal after six years to join Premier League rival Liverpool for an initial fee of 35 million pounds ($45 million) on Thursday, the first high-profile move on the last day of Europe's transfer window.
The 24-year-old Oxlade-Chamberlain allowed his Arsenal contract to enter its final season after rejecting offers of a new deal, and had been linked with a move across London to Chelsea. Facing the prospect of losing Oxlade-Chamberlain on a free transfer next year, Arsenal instead secured a big fee for the England international.(Photo: AP)
Croatian teenager Nikola Vlasic said his move to English Premier league side Everton on Thursday from Hajduk Split for a reported £10 million (11mn euros, $13mn) is the "opportunity of a lifetime", becoming the Toffees ninth signing of the summer.
Vlasic caught Koeman's eye in the two-legged Europa League clash with Everton earlier this month -- which the English side won -- and the teenager revealed a large part of his decision to sign for them was because the Dutch great is in charge.
Barcelona right-back Douglas will spend the rest of the season on loan at Portuguese giants Benfica, Barca announced on Thursday. The 27-year-old Brazilian has made just eight appearances for the Catalans since joining from Sao Paulo in 2014 and spent last season also on loan at Sporting Gijon.

Inter Milan have shipped out unsettled Brazilian striker Gabriel Barbosa on loan to Benfica, the Italian club announced on Thursday.
The 21-year-old joined Inter on a five-year deal from Santos last August for close to 30 million euros ($35.8 million) but scored just once in nine league appearances during the 2016-17 campaign.
Known as Gabigol, the forward was part of the Brazil team that won Olympic gold in Rio and has been capped four times by his country. (Photo: Twitter)
Central midfielder Nampalys Mendy has returned to former club Nice on a season-long loan from Leicester. The 25-year-old Frenchman joined Leicester last season after it was crowned Premier League champion.
He was signed as a replacement for N'Golo Kante - who joined Chelsea - but was hindered by injury and made only four league appearances as Leicester struggled. (Photo: AFP)
Germany's World Cup winner Benedikt Hoewedes completed a hastily arranged transfer to Italian champions Juventus on Wednesday after being stripped of the captaincy at Schalke.
The transfer includes an option to buy Hoewedes outright for 13 million euros which will be automatically activated if he makes 25 appearances for his new club. After ten years and 240 appearances for Schalke, Hoewedes' departure was extremely hasty. (Photo: AP)
Premier League champions Chelsea have bolstered their squad with a transfer deadline-day move for Italian right-back Davide Zappacosta. Zappacosta, 25, signed a four-year deal after Chelsea paid Torino a reported fee of around £23 million ($29.8 million, 25 million euros) for his services.
He has been capped four times by Italy and played under Chelsea manager Antonio Conte during his time as national coach.
Dutch defender Marvin Zeegelaar signed for Premier League side Watford on Thursday from Sporting Lisbon and resolved a problem for manager Marco Silva.
The 27-year-old -- who had been at Sporting Lisbon for just a season -- signed a four year contract with the Hornets for an undisclosed fee. Silva had been searching for a left-back as Jose Holebas' ill discipline caught up with him again when the 33-year-old Greek international was sent off in their League Cup loss to Bristol City last week.

Inter Milan has signed France under-21 forward Yann Karamoh from Caen on a two-year loan deal with the option to buy.

Brighton have also signed Dutch international goalkeeper Tim Krul from Newcastle United on a season-long loan. The 29-year-old previously played under Hughton at St James' Park.
"I know Tim from my time at Newcastle and he is an excellent professional that has a vast amount of experience at both club and international level," said Hughton, whose side have picked up one point from their first three games.
Premier League champion Chelsea has signed Danny Drinkwater from Leicester at the end of the summer transfer window.

Llorente is linking up with last season's top Premier League scorer, Harry Kane, at Tottenham.
Portugal winger Renato Sanches has joined Swansea on season-long loan from Bayern Munich in one of the most improbable signings in Europe's transfer window. Weeks earlier, he had joined Bayern on one of the richest contracts in Bundesliga history for a transfer fee that could climb to about $90 million.
Swansea manager Paul Clement likely played a big role in the move for the 20-year-old Sanches, having been assistant coach at Bayern during the first half of last season.(Photo: AP)

France international centre-back Mamadou Sakho has joined Crystal Palace from Liverpool on a permanent basis, his new club announced on Friday.
The 27-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Palace, helping the south London club avoid relegation, after falling out of favour with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
Teenage forward Moise Kean has moved to Hellas Verona from Juventus on a season-long loan deal. Kean was the first player born in this millennium to score in one of Europe's top five leagues; play in the Champions League; and play in Serie A. He made his debut for Juventus aged 16.
Kean made 18 league appearances for Juventus last season, scoring once. However, the 17-year-old was competing with Gonzalo Higuain, Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala for a spot in the starting lineup in Turin.
Teen sensation Kylian Mbappe has joined Paris Saint-Germain on loan from Monaco with a view to a permanent signing. PSG says an agreement is already in place for the 18-year-old Mbappe to sign a deal through 2022 at the end of the season.
Mbappe is the latest player from last season's title-winning Monaco side to leave, following the departures of attacking midfielder Bernardo Silva (Manchester City), full back Benjamin Mendy (Manchester City), forward Valere Germain (Marseille), and defensive midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko (Chelsea) for about 160 million euros ($190 million).
Central midfielder Giannelli Imbula has joined French club Toulouse from Stoke on a season-long deal.
The 24-year-old Frenchman failed to shine in the Premier League after joining Stoke for a club-record fee from FC Porto two seasons ago. Prior to joining Porto, Imbula had a good spell with Marseille for two seasons, playing 66 games in the French league.
Jadon Sancho will take the Borussia Dortmund jersey given up by Ousmane Dembele after the England youth international joined from Manchester City.

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has joined German team Wolfsburg on a season-long loan deal. The Belgium international was set to be the fourth-choice striker at the Premier League club this season, behind Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke.
Origi was signed from Lille in 2014 and spent a season back on loan at the French club before scoring 21 goals in 77 appearances for Liverpool over two years. He was never a regular starter, though.
Portugal winger Nani has joined Lazio from Valencia on a season-long loan for 3.5 million euros ($4 million) with the right to buy.
Nani has spent a year at Valencia following stints at Sporting Lisbon and Fenerbahce after his departure from Manchester United in 2014. The 30-year-old has played more than 100 times for Portugal, winning the European Championship in 2016. (Photo: AP)
Ivorian right-back Serge Aurier has joined Tottenham Hotspur from Paris Saint-Germain on a five-year contract, the two clubs announced on Thursday. During his time at Parc des Princes, he won three French Cups and three French League Cups.
At Spurs he will fill the void left by England right-back Kyle Walker's ?45 million move to Manchester City. He can also play at centre-back.
RB Leipzig announced Thursday the signing of Slovenia midfielder Kevin Kampl as a possible replacement for Guinea international Naby Keita who has agreed to join Liverpool for the 2018-19 season.
