Bastia have signed France Under-21 international goalkeeper Alphonse Areola on loan from Ligue 1 champions Paris St Germain.
Areola has had few opportunities to impress at the Parc des Princes but played 35 matches to help Lens gain promotion to the top flight last season.
He will again go out on loan this term, with the Corsican club confirming they had snapped up the 21-year-old, although the length of the deal was not mentioned.
Crystal Palace have signed striker Fraizer Campbell from Cardiff.
Campbell has joined for an undisclosed fee, putting pen-to-paper on a three-year deal with the London club.
The 26-year-old, who came through the youth ranks at Manchester United at the start of his career, won the solitary senior England cap he has to his name in 2012.
QPR have recalled Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar from his loan spell at Toronto FC in MLS.
The 34-year-old, who played in all seven of Brazil's matches at this summer's World Cup, joined Toronto in February and made seven appearances for the Canadian outfit.
Toronto general manager Tim Bezbatchenko said: "On behalf of everyone at Toronto FC, I'd like to send our sincere thanks to QPR for the opportunity to bring Julio to Toronto. We'd also like to thank Julio for everything he brought to our club. He made an immediate impact and all of us are better for it."
