Get caught up with all the movers and shakers from this past summer's transfer window.

Fenerbahce have reportedly completed the signing of Portugal midfielder Raul Meireles from Chelsea.

On Monday lunchtime, discussions were confirmed to be taking place between the two clubs regarding the midfielder and a deal now appears to have been reached.

Meireles, 29, had made only one start in three Premier League games for Chelsea this season and was an unused substitute in the Super Cup defeat by Atletico Madrid.

The arrivals of the likes of Eden Hazard and Oscar had been an indication the European champions were looking in a different, younger direction.

And Meireles has now switch the move to Fenerbahce after just more than a year since he moved to Chelsea on the British summer transfer deadline day of 2011.

The Portuguese will be reunited with Dirk Kuyt at Fenerbahce having spent a year with the Dutchman at Liverpool.
