Done deals of the day including Szczesny, Zielinski and more

We are five days in to the last month of the transfer window, and it seems like the transfer window is going through a lull before some major deals start shaping up in the last few days of the window.
However, there were still significant deals that happened on August 4.


Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has joined AS Roma on loan for yet another season. The Poland international spent last season on at Roma too. The loan deal doesn’t reportedly involve an option to buy for Roma.


Napoli have finally signed Piotr Zielinski from fellow Serie A side Udinese in a deal worth £8.5m. The Poland international had been strongly linked with Liverpool since January, but it appears that the Reds cooled off their interest in recent months.


Stoke City have confirmed the signing of young defender Ryan Sweeney from AFC Wimbledon in a deal worth £1m. The 19-year-old has agreed to the personal terms with the Potters and will undergo a medical tomorrow.


Newcastle United winger Florian Thauvin has joined Ligue 1 side Marseille on a season-long move. The 23-year-old, who joined the Magpies in a £15 million deal from Marseille last season, also spent the second half of last season on loan at his former club. Marseille have an obligation to make the move permanent next summer.


Norwich City have signed midfielder Alex Pritchard from Tottenham on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee. The 23-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom.


Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of striker Ross McCormack in a £12m deal from Fulham. The 29-year-old, who scored 21 league goals last season, has signed a four-year deal.


Former Sunderland midfielder Ola Toivonen has signed a three-year contract with Ligue 1 side Toulouse. The 30-year-old made 14 appearances in all competitions for the Black Cats last season on a loan move from Rennes.
