Highly-rated MK Dons midfielder Dele Alli has signed a new and improved contract with the club.

The 18-year-old is widely regarded as one of the brightest talents in the Football League, and has reportedly attracted interest from some of the biggest clubs in the world.

Liverpool and Bayern Munich are thought to be among his admirers, but Alli has committed his immediate future to the Dons.

The youngster's new deal will run until 2017, but manager Karl Robinson admits that it's unlikely Alli will remain at stadium:mk for that long.

"Dele is an exceptionally gifted player and it was only right that we rewarded him for a fantastic 12 months with this new deal.

Dele will continue to be linked with some of the world’s biggest clubs and it’s inevitable that there will be a time when we will have to let him go, whether that be in January, next summer or whenever. "

Norwich City have beaten the deadline to sign Southampton defender Jos Hooiveld on a season-long loan deal.

The commanding Dutchman is the second new defensive recruit of the day, after the Canaries also captured Arsenal centre back Ignasi Miquel.

Former Celtic man Hooiveld was a key part of the Saints team which gained promotion to the Premier League in 2012, and will add welcome experience to the Norwich backline.

"I am very excited about this move. I have played at Norwich and I was very impressed with the surroundings and the atmosphere. It was a full house then and again last Saturday when I saw the Bournemouth game.

Everybody I have asked about Norwich says only good things. I know Gary Hooper from our time at Celtic together and he was very positive about everything at the Club when I phoned him to talk about coming here.

I am looking forward to meeting the rest of the players in training and fighting for a place in the team. It’s a very good squad at Norwich and has every chance of doing well this season."

– Jos Hooiveld, Norwich City

Meanwhile, the Canaries have also agreed a deal to sign highly-rated Swindon Town midfielder Louis Thompson.

The 19-year-old had attracted a lot of interest this summer, but Norwich have won the race for his signature.

Thompson has agreed a three-year contract, with the option of a further 12 months, at Carrow Road.

He will remain with Swindon on loan for the rest of the season as he continues his development.

"I'm extremely proud. To come to a club of Norwich City's stature is a fantastic achievement for me. I'm really looking forward to the challenge of coming here after my loan finishes at Swindon.

It's a massive club with a huge fan base, there's not a single negative thing to say about them. Hopefully they can do well this year and challenge for a Premier League place."

– Louis Thompson, Norwich City

Finally, out-of-favour Norwich striker Luciano Becchio has joined Championship rivals Rotherham United on loan until January.

The Argentine has barely featured since moving from Leeds United in January 2013, and will now hope to see first team action in South Yorkshire.

Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond going nowhere

Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond will be staying with the club after all.

The 20-year-old was consistently linked with a move away from Carrow Road throughout the summer, but judging by this cheeky tweet, his future lies with the Canaries for another few months at least.

Peterborough United have completed the signing of highly-rated Hartlepool United striker Luke James for an undisclosed fee.

Posh have been chasing the talented 19-year-old all summer, and have finally managed to convince the League Two club to sell.

James has signed a four-year contract at London Road, and takes the number nine shirt left vacant by Britt Assombalonga who joined Nottingham Forest last month.

"I am delighted to get this bit of business done. I think everyone is aware that we have been interested in Luke for quite a while. We have had to be patient, but we have used our experience from other deals in this transfer.

I am grateful to my chairman and to Barry Fry for getting this deal over the line. We are delighted to get him. We felt we needed a number nine. He is a goal-scorer, he has a great attitude and he can't wait to get started."

– Darren Ferguson, Peterborough United manager
