When does the transfer window open?
The transfer window will open on December 31, 2018.
The new season is expected to be full of big names, but there are also plenty of lesser-known names that could be coming to the Premier League this season.
Here are the top five transfer news stories of the day.
Middlesbrough have signed midfielder and international striker Sadiq Akram from Bournemouth, reports Goal.
Akram joins the club from fellow British international striker Tom Cleverley who joined Bournette from Southampton in the summer.
The 24-year-old joins the Seasiders after spending last season on loan at Reading, scoring seven goals in 21 appearances.
“I am delighted to have secured the services of Sadiq, who brings international experience and versatility to the club,” Bournettes manager Mick McCarthy said.
“Sadiq is a versatile player who can play as a number 10 or as a forward.
He has been a top scorer for his country at both youth and senior levels and has represented England at senior level.”
Akram is likely to slot into a number ten role at Bourn, although the defender’s current contract at the club expires in the 2019-20 season.
He made his debut for the Bourners in the Premier Leagues Championship last season, making five appearances in the league and scoring twice.
The midfielder has previously represented England’s U-21s at Under-19 and Under-21 level.
Akrams previous club, Brentford, are set to take on an undisclosed fee in the coming days.
