Crystal Palace have signed Connor Wickham from Sunderland on a five-year deal.
The striker moves to Selhurst Park for an undisclosed fee after four years at the Stadium of Light.
Wickham told the club's official site: "I think I needed the fresh start, I had four years up north and it's been a bit stop-start. Now I've come back home and I can settle down and see my family a bit more and hopefully let my football do the talking."
Lyon are closing in on the signing of Brazilian right-back Rafael from Manchester United.
The defender was told he could leave United earlier this summer after being left out of the squad for the club's pre-season tour of the United States.
And on Monday morning, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas announced the 25-year-old was in the French city ahead of a potential transfer to the Ligue 1 runners-up.
"Rafael has arrived from Manchester, we are waiting for an agreement with MU (United) about his transfer," Aulas tweeted.
"He has the Brazilian good humour."

Angel di Maria has arrived in Doha for his medical with Paris St Germain.
The Argentina international touched down in Qatar late on Sunday night and posed for photos with excited fans at the airport in the country's capital.
Di Maria is expected to undergo tests at the Aspire Academy on Monday.
If there are no hiccups, Di Maria could complete his transfer from Manchester United to PSG before the end of the day.
The 27-year-old was given permission to fly to Qatar for talks with PSG officials after United agreed a 63million euro (£44.3m) fee with the French champions for the midfielder.
United signed Di Maria from Real Madrid for £59.7m last summer, but after an encouraging start his form dipped drastically and he only started one of the final 10 games of last season.
