LONDON (Reuters) - Latest news and highlights from the Premier League’s transfer deadline day on Thursday (all times GMT):

“He wasn’t really in the right frame of mind today, so I sent him home (from training), which is understandable.
“His beef is with the chairman and owners... because he’s wanted to leave and they haven’t received the offer that they think is sufficient to allow him to leave.”
