Everton have potentially spent £30 million to bring in England defender Michael Keane from Burnley. The 24-year-old has signed a five year deal with the club and there are clauses in the transfer that could raise the price up to that club record tying fee. He's Everton's fifth signing of the summer. 

Real Salt Lake have added defender Marcelo Silva from Real Zaragoza in the Spanish second tier. They used Targeted Allocation Money to complete the deal. The Uruguayan had been in Spain for seven years before the move, a time that included stays at Almeria, Las Palmas, and Real Valladolid.

Paris Saint-Germain had given 17-year-old American Timothy Weah his first pro contract. Weah is the son of former PSG player and Ballon d'Or winner George Weah and was born in New York. He had been with their youth academy since 2014.

John Terry has finalized his new contract at Aston Villa. It's a one year deal that will pay him £60,000 a week and has him targeting promotion back to the Premier League for the battered club. Coincidentally, he made is Chelsea debut way back in 1998 against his new club.

There were a couple other minor moves around England yesterday. Manchester United added Belgian teen Largie Ramazani and French midfielder Aliou Badara Traore. West Bromwich Albion have also added Chinese international striker Zhang Yuning and subsequently loaned him to Werder Bremen for the year.
