Everton have bolstered their ranks with the loan signing of Dutchman Royston Drenthe from Real Madrid.

Sky Sports sources revealed earlier on deadline day that talks were under way over a possible deal and it has now been confirmed that the Toffees concluded their business before the 11pm cut-off point.

The versatile, left-sided 24-year-old joined Madrid from Feyenoord in 2007 but struggled to tie down a first-team berth at the Bernabeu and spent last season on loan at Hercules.

He is likely to be asked to perform a midfield role as Leighton Baines is an automatic first choice at left-back.

Drenthe's season-long deal went through late on, along with another loan for striker Denis Stracqualursi from Argentine side Tigres.

The Toffees did not officially sign the pair until just before the deadline on a day when there were primarily departures from Goodison Park.

Those came in the form of Mikel Arteta, unexpectedly to Arsenal, with Yakubu Ayegbeni on his way to Premier League rivals Blackburn.
