It's a day where productivity across the country goes through the floor, where news reports from some of the nation's bleakest car parks become the most exciting thing ever, and where we all look on in disbelief when we learn that huge multi-billion businesses are still reliant on fax machines in 2019. Yes, it's transfer deadline day for the English Premier League and the EFL Championship! 

This year's instalment looks like being one of the more eventful ones of recent times, with the likes of Tottenham, Arsenal, Everton and Manchester United all looking to rush through deals before the late afternoon cut-off point.

Getting a live stream of transfer Deadline Day coverage is thankfully far, far easier than trying to get an ageing centre forward to pass a medical - use our guide below, and you'll be able to keep up with all the mayhem, as it happens.

Transfer Deadline Day Summer 2019 - where and when

The window for Premier League and EFL Championship clubs to sign new players closes today (Thursday August 8) a day before the new season starts.

Clubs have until 5pm on Deadline Day to bring players in, but can still sell to leagues where the window remains open beyond August 8 (teams in the German Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga and Scottish Premiership all have until September 2 to conclude deals for example, as do teams in EFL Leagues One and Two).

Man United look set to be one of the busiest clubs on the day, with the departure of Romelu Lukaku set to trigger moves for a new forward. Moussa Dembele from Lyon and Polish hitman Robert Lewandowski are rumoured to be lined up by boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, while a move to the Red Devils for Tottenham's want-away Norwegian star Christian Eriksen also remains a possibility.

Spurs also look set to make a major signing or two of their own, with talks ongoing for Paulo Dybala from Juventus, Real Betis star Giovani Lo Celso and Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon.

Everton appear to have taken a scattergun approach to their business, with the Merseysiders throwing out seemingly random bids for players during the closing stages of the window, with the club now focusing on bringing in Crystal Palace forward Wilfred Zaha and Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson to Goodison Park.

Arsenal fans have been hoping for some much needed strengthening at the back this window, and they'll be hoping the club can beat the deadline with deals for Celtic left back Kieran Tierney and Chelsea's David Luiz.

With so many deals on a knife-edge, the great news is that following the comings and goings is easy. Whether you're sneakily trying to watch at work or are on holiday abroad, we’ll show you how to live stream Deadline Day coverage no matter where you are in the world.
