James McCarthy: Joins Everton from Wigan

Everton have completed deals to sign Wigan midfielder James McCarthy, Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku and Manchester City

McCarthy joins for a fee in the region of £12million, while Lukaku and Barry make the move to Goodison Park on loan for the season.

Everton had been linked with Republic of Ireland international McCarthy for some time but the transfer appeared to be off after Latics chairman Dave Whelan baulked at the idea of the fee being paid in instalments.

A deal has now been thrashed out though and the 22-year-old will be back playing in the Premier League having been relegated with Athletic last season.

Meanwhile, Everton boss Roberto Martinez has boosted his attacking options after beating West Brom to the loan signing of Belgium international Lukaku.

Chelsea had initially indicated they would not be letting him leave Stamford Bridge after he impressed on loan at The Hawthorns last season.

Lukaku has played in three of Chelsea's four matches this season but Jose Mourinho has allowed him to make the temporary move to Merseyside, despite West Brom appearing keen to take him back to the West Midlands.

After Marouane Fellaini completed a £27.5million move to Manchester United, Martinez moved to bolster his options in the middle of the park by taking England international Barry on a temporary deal.

The move was not finalised until close to the 11pm deadline, with City apparently keen to secure a transfer fee for him.

They have relented, although it is not clear how much of Barry's wages Everton will be liable for.
