Sky Sports deadline daySky Sports is partnering with Twitter to deliver a global live stream of coverage of the English Premier League transfer deadline.

Sky is broadcasting live coverage from the Sky Sports Newsroom via Twitter at two points during the day and in the final hour before the transfer window for players to change teams closes.
