    Leeds have completed three deals on deadline day, while Gylfi Einarsson has left the club and is now a free agent.

    Portuguese left-winger Felipe Da Costa has signed from Greek First Division side Ionikos on an initial one year deal.

    Newcastle defender Paul Huntington has signed a 'long term' deal at the club for an undisclosed fee. Paul, who will be 20 this month, made 11 starts and one substitute appearance for the Magpies, scoring the equalising goal as they came from behind to beat Spurs 3-2 last season.

    Scotland Under 19 international goalkeeper Alan Martin turned down Rangers to sign a two year deal at Leeds after a successful trial. He will be competing for the Number One jersey with Caspar Ankergren and, when fit, promising goalkeeper Jonathan Lund, who was attracting interest from Man Utd last season.

    Johnny Howson and Jermaine Beckford have both committed to the club long term, Howson saying he would love to stay at Leeds for his entire career after being linked with Middlesbrough.
