A few days ago, we talked about some new faces in the Premier League who have all the potentials to stand out this season and mark an amazing beginning to their Premier League career. Andre Ayew, Matteo Darmian, Xherdan Shaqiri all have been impressive with their performances in the first few weeks and hope to continue with their fine forms in the coming ones.
Let us now focus on those names who signed for a new Premier League club on the deadline day of this transfer window. Well, every year, this day emerges with some unexpected signings. With a lot of money flying around on the last day, everyone waits eagerly till the clock ticks and this year was no exception!
We have seen David de Gea deal fall through because of some miscommunications, we have seen Alex Song back in the Premier League on loan and we have definitely got some unusual swap deals on the final day. Before we start discussing the potential stars of this lot, let us have a look at all those deals that took place on the deadline day.

And now, here are a few players who may become the next big thing in Premier League.
Glenn Murray (Bournemouth): This guy is not at all new to the top tier of England. Last year, as a Crystal Palace forward he got to play only 868 minutes and he provided 7 goals and 5 assists. Now that he has signed for Bournemouth, with an in-form Callum Wilson on his side, the 31-year old is definitely capable of giving more firepower upfront.
Nathan Dyer (Leicester City): With Sigurdsson, Shelvey, Ayew and Jefferson Montero in the team, Gary Monk could not give him enough match-time but in Leicester, Nathan Dyer should find himself in the starting line-up pretty soon. The Foxes have been the surprise package this season and huge credit goes to their attacking trio of Albrighton-Vardy-Mahrez. Dyer will definitely strengthen this attack and has the opportunity prove his worth this season.
Anthony Martial (Manchester United): Ed Woodward broke the teenage transfer record, by signing former Monaco forward Anthony Martial for a whooping fee of £36m. Louis Van Gaal’s side has been suffering from the lack of a proper striker. Wayne Rooney could not do a decent job at the number 10 role and now, the nineteen year old should step up to become the star of the season.
Virgil Van Dijk (Southampton): The Saints had to rely on young defender Matt Targett after Bertrand suffered an injury and it did not come out to be too well as Southampton conceded as many as five goals in the first couple of matches. However, in Virgil van Dijk, Ronald Koeman may find a responsible center back. Formerly a Celtic player, Van Dijk, in 2013, was part of the defence that went 1,215 minutes without conceding a goal, breaking the 43-year-old Scottish League record set by Aberdeen’s keeper Bobby Clark. Now at Southampton too, he should give security at the back with Jose Fonte.
Victor Ibarbo (Watford): Newly promoted Watford has been the busiest club this summer and on the final day, they signed three players, Ibarbo being one of them. He has joined the English side on loan from Cagliari. Watford have not scored for the last three matches and the coach will hope for a better display from the new recruit.
Alex Song, Nikica Jelavic, Victor Moses (West Ham): The Hammers completed the singing of four new players and among them, these three have the potential to become the key players this season. Song, with his huge experience so far, should prove to be useful for West Ham. On the other hand, Jelavic should also get some match-time now that Zarate, Carroll and Valencia all are injured. If he can score some goals, he will find a permanent place at the team. However, it’s not so easy task for Victor Moses. The midfielder is not fully match-fit and his fellow team-mates Kouyate, Payet, Noble and Lanzini are in good form at the moment. But he has always performed against the odds and this season should not be an exception either.
