The summer transfer window has now closed for Premier League clubs - take a look back at Manchester United's comings and goings, with the European market and EFL loan system still open.

Diogo Dalot and Fred were confirmed as new arrivals in June. Defender Dalot sealed a switch from FC Porto, while the move for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred was finalised once his work permit and international clearance was received.

Goalkeeper Lee Grant became the third signing of the close season when sealing a transfer from Stoke City.

On the outgoing front, Daley Blind finalised a return to his former Ajax.

Seven players were initially released from the Reserves squad with one of them, Joe Riley, already fixed up with new employers. The full-back has agreed to join League One side Bradford City. Sam Johnstone secured a switch to West Brom after a fee was agreed with the Baggies, following his time on loan at Aston Villa. Sam's younger brother, Max Johnstone has joined Sunderland and Tosin Kehinde agreed a deal with CD Feirense in Portugal.

Under-23s forward Indy Boonen has also left after signing for Oostende in his native Belgium, and his fellow countryman Ilias Moutha-Sebtaoui is now with Anderlecht. As for players going out on loan, goalkeeper Dean Henderson's move to Sheffield United has been followed by temporary transfers for Matty Willock (St. Mirren) and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson (Scunthorpe United).

Meanwhile, highly-rated keeper Joel Pereira has returned to his native Portugal to link up with Vitoria Setubal on loan for the 2018/19 campaign, Kieran O'Hara went to Macclesfield Town, and Axel Tuanzebe has linked up with Aston Villa again for the campaign. At the end of the Premier League window, Tim Fosu-Mensah was loaned to Fulham for the term and James Wilson also clinched a season-long move to Aberdeen.

With time running out before the deadline at the end of the month, Demi Mitchell agreed another loan move at Hearts.

We wish the best of luck to all the players who have left the club this summer.
