Transfer Deadline Day: What deals can we expect on Jan. 31?

It's been another relatively quiet January window, but there still might be some action on Thursday's transfer deadline day (11 p.m. GMT/6 p.m. ET)

Here are a few moves that should, could and probably won't happen...

What should happen on deadline day...

So, farewell then, Marouane Fellaini. If it hasn't already happened by the time you read this, it seems Fellaini will be the latest Belgian midfielder to seal a move to China, following Mousa Dembele, with Shandong Luneng offering him a three-year contract and, presumably, a massive stack of cash. Will he be missed? Possibly, but Manchester United will somehow struggle on.

On the topic of Belgian midfielders, it very much seems like Youri Tielemans  will be playing in the Premier League, but for whom? Leicester have been the favourites, a swap deal for Adrien Silva  mooted, but there's talk of interest from Tottenham, West Ham, Newcastle and even Arsenal, so who knows exactly where he will end up.

Newcastle are going to sign someone! Perhaps more than someone! Maybe two, perhaps three -- three! Imagine that! -- players. The long-running Miguel Almiron saga should have concluded before the clock strikes 11 p.m., while left-back Antonio Barreca looks likely to arrive from Milan and midfielder Andreas Samaris could come in, too. The admin department at St James's Park will have rarely seen such action.
