As the deals go through on deadline day, Sky Bet tell us which other moves are being backed in their Transfer Specials.

Jack Butland

Favourites: Stoke

Butland's future has become subject of intense speculation since cash-strapped Birmingham revealed they may have to cash in to ease their financial problems. The 19-year-old goalkeeper, who has already made his full England debut, is likely to have his pick of suitors from the Premier League. Liverpool initially attracted the majority of the backing so far while Chelsea were also backed following reported contact with the St Andrews' outfit. However, Stoke have now emerged as the firm favourites following the news that they have had a bid rejected.

Mohamed Diame

Favourites: Arsenal

West Ham will be hoping none of the Premier League's top teams make their move on deadline day as a release clause remains in the midfielder's contract. We go odds-against that a deal will be done with Arsenal the only side really attracting support to secure his services.

Thomas Ince

Favourites: Liverpool

The talented young winger looked nailed on for a move the Liverpool, remaining odds-on to sign for the Reds for the majority of the transfer window. However, with a fee yet to be agreed and speculation cooling, the chances of a deal being done has drifted out to 2/1. Reading have also been backed to sign the England Under-21 star and are second favourites.

Peter Crouch

Favourites: QPR

Crouch is one of the many players Harry Redknapp is thought to want to link back up with as he looks to steer QPR away from relegation. The Hoops are considered the sole contenders to secure the striker's services, with the possibility of him remaining at Stoke looking more realistic at odds-on.

Charlie Austin

Favourites: Celtic

Austin has been scoring for fun - 23 in 27 games - and it now appears that the Burnley hitman is now the target of Celtic if Gary Hooper moves to the Premier League this month. With Norwich boss Chris Hughton thought to be prepared to pay up to £8million for the Celtic man, money has come in for Austin to make the move to Parkhead while Everton are second favourites.

Gary Hooper

Favourites: Norwich

Celtic's link to Austin seems to stem from growing interest in Hooper, who has been the subject of four failed bids from Norwich, one of several Premier League clubs believed to be monitoring the prolific Celtic striker. Having made the first move, the Canaries are considered favourites to sign him, particularly as Hooper has rejected a new contract offer from the Bhoys. However, support has come in for Tottenham to launch a bid despite manager Andre Villas Boas ruling out any deadline day deals.

Sky Bet's next club odds

David Villa

Favourites: Manchester City

City have emerged as the favourites to sign the Barcelona striker after talk of Mario Balotelli joining AC Milan gained substance. Swansea were actaully initially heavily backed to seal a shock move for the Spain international, but suggestions of a loan move have since been dismissed. Arsenal were backed into favourites briefly amid speculation over Theo Walcott's future, but the England forward's contact extension has cooled talk.

Sky Bet's next club odds

Falcao

Favourites: PSG

The Colombian striker will be near the top of the shopping list of any club with the financial clout to tempt Atletico Madrid to part with his services. Fernando Torres' shyness in front of goal prompted talk of a move from Chelsea, with a part-exchange deal mooted. The Blues had headed the betting for a matter of months, but interest has tempered somewhat since Demba Ba arrived at Stamford Bridge. Big-spending PSG have now emerged as the favourites to lure him away from the Vicente Calderon Stadium.

Sky Bet's next club odds

Nani

Favourites: Arsenal

Speculation has gradually started to build over Nani's future as he remains in the wilderness at Old Trafford. The winger has struggled to impress during his limited playing time this season. PSG were installed as the initial favourites to secure the Portugal international's services, but a flurry of money has seen Arsenal move to the head of the market.

Sky Bet's next club odds

Frank Lampard

Favourites: Any MLS club

With Lampard resigned to not being offered a a contract extension at Stamford Bridge, LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena admits the England midfielder could be an ideal replacement for David Beckham at the MLS club. Manchester United have also been linked to the 34-year-old who is a 6/1 shot to move to Old Trafford before September 1st.
