Mesut Ozil: 14/1 for the PFA player of t

All the Transfer Deadline Day market moves from the Sky Bet trading room.

Check out Sky Bet's player specials!

2325: Sky Bet already have Marouane Fellaini specials up - his move to Manchester United is expected to be confirmed shortly.

His league goals line is set at 6.5 and it's 5/6 either side of that mark. The Belgian bagged 11 at Everton last season.

He's also 7/4 to score on debut - which could come against Crystal Palace on September 14 - and 33/1 to be named PFA player of the year.

2306: What's happening with Marouane Fellaini? Betting is back open and he's 4/7 to leave Everton, 5/4 to stay!

2304: Ah, but free agents can still move.

Sky Bet make Middlesbrough 6/1 favourites to sign former England striker Jay Bothroyd.

And don't forget other markets will soon be back up - the window may not reopen until January 1 but betting will commence long before then!

2300: That's the deadline. Transfer specials taken down.

2255: Five minutes left - Marouane Fellaini 4/9 to leave Everton and 13/8 to stay.

2235: The Mesut Ozil deal is done and you can already bet on how he performs at Arsenal.

Sky Bet have his total league goals line set at 5.5 and it's 5/6 either side of that mark.

The German is 14/1 to be crowned PFA player of the year and he's 3/1 to score on his debut - which could come at Sunderland on September 14.

2217: More on Mesut Ozil. Sky Bet are now betting on whether he stays at Real Madrid or leaves.

He's already been backed in from 11/1 to 9/2 to stay. However, it's 1/8 that he leaves.

2205: Less than an hour go to to the deadline and are deals going to collapse?

Still no news on Mesut Ozil completing a move to Arsenal but he's still 1/20 to make the switch from Real Madrid.

Manchester United target Marouane Fellaini is back out to 1/2 to leave Everton and 6/4 to stay.

And Ander Herrera - another midfielder linked with a move to United - is now 1/16 to stay at Athletic Bilbao.

"This one has no legs and is dead in the water," says Sky Bet's Chris Spicer.

2200: Another twist in the Romelu Lukaku market - he's now evens for West Brom and 6/4 for Everton after Sky Sports News reported the Blues were pushing hard to sign the Belgian.

He's 9/2 to remain at Chelsea.

2155: Sky Bet have reopened their James McCarthy stay or leave market.

He's immediately been back in from 2/5 to 1/4 to stay at Wigan and is out to 11/4 from 7/4 to go.

It's been reported that Everton have made a bid which has been knocked back by Wigan chairman Dave Whelan.

2135: After Sky Sports News report that Romelu Lukaku is heading to West Brom's training ground, Sky Bet go 1/5 that he re-signs for the Baggies on loan.

He was 50/1 to make such a move earlier this evening.

Everton are out to 9/1 to nab the Belgian.

2105: Luis Suarez hasn't really figured today but here's an update.

One Sky Bet punter had a "massive" bet on him staying at Liverpool at odds of 1/16.

The market has now been withdrawn.

2058: Here's an interesting move - Fernando Torres is 5/1 from 40/1 to sign for Tottenham.

Sky Bet trader Chris Spicer said: "There has been a lot of interest in this and it may have legs."

Meanwhile, Arsenal are out to 25/1 to sign Demba Ba with reports suggesting he won't be going there. Ba is now 1/4 to stay put at Chelsea.

2016: Sky Bet report one of their customers has had a "maximum bet" on Thomas Ince joining Tottenham.

They subsequently go 4/7 from 4/5 about the Blackpool star making such a move.

2000: With reports now suggesting Manchester United have not even bid for Ander Herrera, he's been backed to stay at Athletic Bilbao, although his future remains up in the air as far as the market is concerned - it's 5/6 he stays put and the same price that he leaves.

Romelu Lukaku continues to be backed to join Everton - he's now 8/13 for such a move.

And Demba Ba is back out to 5/1 to move to Tottenham. Arsenal are back as clear favourites to sign him at 3/1. Everton can be backed at 8/1.1940: Sky Bet report a "massive gamble" on Demba Ba joining Tottenham following reports that such a move could happen.

The Chelsea man is now 3/1 from 28/1 to move to White Hart Lane. Arsenal, linked with Ba earlier today, are out to the same price to sign Ba.

1920: It's just been suggested on Sky Sports News that Everton want a Chelsea striker on loan.

Romelu Lukaku is now 2/1 to move to Goodison before the deadline with Demba Ba 28/1 for such a switch.

1916: A big move to report - Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes has been slashed from 50/1 to 8/1 for a move to Everton.

More good news for Everton fans is that Leighton Baines is now into 1/7 to stay at Goodison Park.

However, it's currently 4/9 that Marouane Fellaini leaves - that price is on the drift though as the deadline nears and still now deal with Manchester United has been sorted.

Also, an update on Juan Mata. He's looking more and more likely to stay at Chelsea, according to the market. The Spaniard is 1/6 (from 1/3) to remain at the Bridge.

1900: Peter Odemwingie has finally got out of West Brom and has landed with Cardiff.

The striker is 2/1 to score on his debut in Sky Bet's specials market on him while it is 5/6 over/under 7.5 goals for the Bluebirds this season.

Sky Bet football compiler Chris Spicer said: "Odemwingie has a couple of other strikers to displace at Cardiff if he wishes to make the first team.

"It could be tough for the Nigerian and I'm not fully convinced he could flourish in Wales."

1800: Plenty more changes as we reach the final few hours of Deadline Day.

Juan Mata is being backed to stay at Chelsea.

He is now 8/15 to do so from 8/11 while PSG are front runners to sign the Spaniard at 7/4.

Some Wigan news and Callum McManaman is now 1/14 to stay at Wigan from 1/3.

Fellow Lactic James McCarthy is 4/9 to leave Wigan and 1/2 to go to Everton.

Elsewhere, Sky Bet have seen a few bets on Fabio Quagliarella to sign for for Roma at even money and they are now 4/5.

1745: We are reliably informed that the Mesut Ozil deal is getting closer and closer to be completed at Arsenal.

He is 1/20 at Sky Bet to sign for the Gunners and once it goes through - if it does - we shall have some specials betting on how he does this season at the Emirates.

1715: One of the big talking points in recent weeks has been whether Marouane Fellaini will remain at Everton or head elsewhere - with Manchester United the likely destination.

The Belgian midfielder is currently 1/4 for a Goodison Park exit and 11/4 to stay.

1620: Another striker Billy Sharp is pick-em at 6/1 to move to either Leeds or Sheffield Wednesday.

1615: The 4/1 about Jordan Rhodes has disappeared in a twinkle of an eye and the striker is now 5/6 to move to Wigan.

1610: Paris Saint-Germain have been backed in from 33/1 to 9/2 to sign Juan Mata by Sky Bet amid French reports of a deadline day move.

Suggestions of the big-spending Ligue 1 champions making a late move have prompted a flurry of bets, forcing the firm to slash the odds.

They do however see the Spaniard staying at Stamford Bridge as the most likely scenario, going 1/6 to remain and 7/2 for him to leave the Blues.

1600: Wigan have reportedly tabled a bid for Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes so could the 4/1 to join the Latics at Sky Bet be some value? We shall see!

1515: Lets have another round-up from Sky Bet on some of the big names who could be going or staying:

Ander Herrera is really short at 1/9 to leave Athletic Bilbao now.

Juan Mata has not been mentioned a great deal on this feature today but he is being backed to move to Liverpool - that is currently a 9/1 chance.

Stephane Sessegnon is 2/9 at the moment to leave Sunderland.

Last but not least, Fabio Quagliarella has been backed in to join Roma and they are 2/1 to land him.

1505: Kaka has admitted to his delight at being back at AC Milan and there are now some specials with Sky Bet on how he will get on - including 7/4 to score on his debut.

1445: Here is a bit more detail as Sky Bet have slashed the odds on the Gunners signing Demba Ba from 5/1 to 1/2 following a run of bets.

The Chelsea striker has been linked with a loan move away from Stamford Bridge, having fallen further down in the pecking order following the arrival of Samuel Eto'o.

Newcastle had been the favourites to sign the Senegal frontman but their odds have drifted out to 12/1 with punters now seeing the Gunners as the most likely suitors.

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "Ba looks surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge but whether the Blues are willing to allowing him join a rival club remains to be seen.

"With Mesut Ozil also extremely short odds to join, the Gunners look set to finally bring in the neccessary reinforcements, but we're still refraining from cutting their title or top-four odds."

1430: Potential movement at Arsenal again with striker Nicklas Bendtner possibly on the way out - he is 8/11 to join Crystal Palace.

1425: The Ander Herrera situation continues to gather pace and he is now into 1/5 at Sky Bet to leave Athletic Bilbao and 10/3 to stay put.

1415: Demba Ba is now 1/6 to leave Chelsea and 7/2 to stay put as there has also been interest from across Europe as well as at Arsenal for the striker's services.

Rafa Benitez is said to be a fan and could be keen to to take him to Napoli.

1400: Wigan charman Dave Whelan has said Everton will need to cough up £14m at least to land James McCarthy. The midfielder is 1/5 for the Toffees to be his next team.

1350: Another round-up on who is going where and there current odds with Sky Bet.

Ander Herrera is 4/5 to stay at Athletic Bilbao and 10/11 to leave.

Arsenal are trying to get some busness done and Sky Bet now make Demba Ba 2/5 to move to the Gunners.

The firm also report they have laid a few big bets on Marouane Fellaini to move to Manchester United at 1/4 and he is now 1/6 to play at Old Trafford.

Finally, Jordan Rhodes to join Wigan has shortened to 4/1.

1310: Mesut Ozil clearly remains the current biggest story and his odds of joining Arsenal have eased slightly to 1/20 at Sky Bet.

1240: Mesut Ozil is reportedly having a medical at Arsenal and he is now 1/25 for the Gunners to be his next club.

1220: Fabio Borini looks highly likely to be playing his football this season st Sunderland after going on loan from Liverpool and Sky Bet have some specials on what he may or may not achieve in the north east.

1215: We are through midday on Deadline Day and time for a round-up of the where we stand with Sky Bet in terms of the potential big names who could be on the move today.

Mesut Ozil is now heavily odds-on to join Arsenal at 1/10 with loads of reports coming in that a deal is almost in place.

Victor Anichebe's price continues to contract and he is now 4/5 to leave Everton and 10/11 to stay.

Fabio Borini's next club and to stay/go has been suspended due to reports that he is having a medical at Sunderland.

Finally, after a run of bets, Shinji Kagawa is 1/6 to stay at Manchester United now.

Sure to be plenty more to follow, so keep it right here!

1205: Manchester United are reportedly showing some interest in Athletic Bilbao's Ander Herrera and he is now odds-on at 8/11 to leave the Spanish side and evens to stay put.

1200: Victor Moses has joined Liverpool on loan for a year from Chelsea and Sky Bet have a range of specials on him right here.

1150: There has been some interest in Everton's Victor Anichebe's future with rumours that he has been holding talks with West Brom and his odds have been trimmed to evens to leave Goodison while he is now out to 8/11 to remain.

1125: Two strikers that have been linked with a move this morning - Stephane Sessegnon is 1/5 to leave Sunderland with West Brom interested and 10/3 to remain in the north east.

Everton's Victor Anichebe is also being tracked but any potential departure is less clear - he is 8/13 to remain at Goodison and 6/5 to leave.

1120: Gareth Bale has passed his medical at Real Madrid - check out the Sky Bet specials on how the Welsh wonder will perform in Spain's capital.

1040: Sky Bet have added a stay/go market for Ander Herrera. It's currently 1/2 he stays at Athletic Bilbao, 6/4 he leaves.

1025: Seems reports of Manchester United interest in Mesut Ozil were premature, with the Gunners now back as short as 2/7 and the champions out to 4/1. PSG look interesting outsiders at 28/1 - they've been linked in the past.

0950: Big change, inevitably, in the Mesut Ozil betting. Sky Bet now go 6/5 Manchester United, and 5/4 Arsenal. Gunners had been 1/6 this morning, United as big as 25/1 yesterday.

0905: The Fabio Quagliarella market is proving very lively with all the money now indicating that West Brom are serious candidates to land the Italian striker. It's 7/4 he joins West Ham and 15/8 West Brom.

0855: Money for Fabio Quagliarella to join West Ham and that is now evens from 5/1. West Brom have also been added to this market amid reports they may also be in for him (5/1).

Vaz Te has been backed to join Crystal Palace and it's now 6/4 from 7/1 for that move to go ahead.

One of the larger stories of the day is Leighton Baines. Both outcomes are attracting money and he's 10/11 to stay at Everton and 4/5 to go.

0845: Tottenham have come in from 6/1 to even-money favourites to sign Thomas Ince from Blackpool today. Everton are 5/1 second favourites with Liverpool now out to 10/1.

0830: So will Marouane Fellaini make the switch from Everton to Manchester United on deadline day? Sky Bet certainly think so. He's priced at 1/4 to move to Old Trafford by the end of today.

0800: Likely to be a busy day for Sky Bet's transfer specials, with Mesut Ozil currently 1/6 to make the move to the Emirates Stadium. Wayne Rooney is 4/1 to make that move, and 16/1 to join Chelsea.
