Manchester United finally secured the signature of Everton's Marouane Fellaini during the closing stages of transfer deadline day for £27.5million.

Moyes has nevertheless insisted that he has total faith in the squad already at his disposal as he plots United's Premier League title defence after succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson as manager. "From what I saw of the players, I'm more than happy with the players I've got," he said after United's 1-0 loss to Liverpool on Sunday. Everton, meanwhile, will be pleased that they managed to hold on to Baines and were also able to bring in three new players on deadline day. Midfielder James McCarthy was snared from Wigan Athletic, Romelu Lukaku joined on loan from Chelsea and a loan deal was also completed for Manchester City's Gareth Barry.
