Liverpool have confirmed a deadline-day agreement with Tottenham for the return of Robbie Keane to White Hart Lane.
Keane, who has endured a frustrating six months at Anfield after leaving Spurs n the summer for £20.3m, was given permission to speak to his former club ahead of a proposed move.
''Liverpool Football Club have reached agreement with Tottenham Hotspur for the sale of Robbie Keane,'' said a Liverpool spokesman.
It meant Keane was set to become the third player manager Harry Redknapp has brought back to White Hart Lane this month, following Jermain Defoe and Pascal Chimbonda.
Chelsea meanwhile, signed Inter winger Ricardo Quaresma on loan in a deal that was sealed a matter of minutes before the window closed.
Any agreed deals could be extended beyond the 5pm deadline due to the weather.
The Premier League announced they would grant applications from clubs to complete transactions after the deadline if there was email confirmation from the two clubs involved that a deal has been agreed in principle.
The clubs were also informed they must satisfy the board that the prevailing weather conditions were preventing the signing from being completed by the deadline.
With the transfer deadline officially passed the latest reports suggested that Andrei Arshavin's protracted move to Arsenal was off, despite him being in London ready to complete a medical ahead of a move.
Arshavin braved heavy snow to arrive in London on Sunday evening, suggesting that a deal was becoming a formality.
On Monday reports first suggested that the deal was off with the two clubs at loggerheads over a fee, however subsequent reports said the deal was done and the only remaining issue was payment owed to Zenit from Arshavin.
However, the latest AP report claimed that a deal for the 27-year-old Russia forward between Arsenal and Zenit had collapsed.

Veteran Roma defender Christian Panucci, who was linked with Hull, looked set to remain in Italy until the end of the season, according to his agent.
''Christian will remain at Roma and will respect his contract,'' said Panucci's agent Oscar Damiani. ''We haven't been able to reach an agreement, the offers we received were not considered good enough by the player.''
