Sergio Reguilon has completed a loan move to Manchester United while Jonny Evans has signed a one-year deal to return to Old Trafford.
In his previous spell at United, Evans made nearly 200 appearances for the club and won three Premier League titles, two League Cups and the Champions League.
The 35-year-old defender signed a short-term deal with his former club for pre-season after his contract at Leicester expired.
Goalkeeper Altay Bayindir also joined United on Deadline Day from Fenerbahce for around £4.3m, signing a four-year deal with the option of a further 12 months.
Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag has confirmed Reguilon will be available to face Arsenal on Sunday – live on Sky Sports.
Ten Hag said: “Reguilon is here, he trained.” Asked if the Spain international would be available to face the Gunners, the United boss said: “Yes.”
United are currently short of options at left-back as Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia are currently sidelined with injuries, with Ten Hag having to call on right-back Diogo Dalot at left-back already this season.

“He’s very experienced,” added Ten Hag. “Played for big clubs, played a lot of games in LaLiga and Premier League.
“We had a problem with Shaw and Malacia and I think we responded very well to that emergency situation.”
Reguilon has not featured in a competitive game for Tottenham since April 2022 and spent last season on loan at Atletico Madrid, where he played 11 LaLiga games.
After completing his move to Old Trafford, Reguilon said: “In life, you have to be ready for everything and the chance to represent this great club with such an illustrious history is one that I could not turn down.
“Having spoken to the manager, I know what he needs from me, and I am ready to play my part in helping the team to achieve success.
“I know that I can contribute to Manchester United this season; I am ready to fight for this group and show everyone my qualities.”
