LONDON (AP) The Latest on transfer deadline day in European soccer (all times local):

3 p.m

Newcastle has signed Paraguay forward Miguel Almiron from Atlanta United in Major League Soccer for a reported club-record fee of around 20 million pounds ($26 million).

Almiron scored 13 goals last season as Atlanta won the MLS Cup for the first time.

Newcastle's previous record transfer fee was the 16 million pounds it paid Real Madrid for Michael Owen in 2005.

Newcastle also signed defender Antonio Barreca on loan from Monaco until the end of the season.

12:10 p.m.

Arsenal has signed Spain international Denis Suarez on loan from Barcelona until the end of the season.

The move reunites the 25-year-old midfielder with Arsenal manager Unai Emery, with the pair having worked together at Sevilla in the 2014-15 season.

Suarez, whose one appearance for Spain came in 2016, can play in positions across the midfield. He is back in England after spending two seasons at Manchester City from 2011-13, during which he made two appearances in the English League Cup.

10:35 a.m.

Wolverhampton has completed the permanent signing of defender Jonny Otto from Atletico Madrid on transfer deadline day.

The 24-year-old Otto has made 22 appearances on loan in the first half of the season for Wolves. Now a permanent deal has been signed at the Premier League club until 2023 with Britain's Press Association saying a club-record 18 million pounds ($24 million) was paid to Atletico.

10:20 a.m.

Clubs in Europe's leading leagues are making their final signings for the rest of the season on transfer deadline day.

Premier League clubs in England have until 2300 GMT to sign players in what could be the last transfer window before Britain leaves the European Union, impacting future trading.

The transfer window closes at 22:59 GMT in Spain, just before midnight local time.

French clubs also have right until the end of Thursday, the final day of January.

For Bundesliga clubs, the transfer window closes earlier in Germany at 1700 GMT.
