Paris -Transfer deals from around Europe on the final day before the closure of the January transfer window:

Serbia's rising star Jojic joins Dortmund

Last season's Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund on Friday signed promising Serbia attacking midfielder Milos Jojic from Partizan Belgrade until June 2018.

The 21-year-old scored on his debut for Serbia in their 2-0 win over Japan last October and has scored six goals, creating a further seven, in 15 league games for Partizan this season.

"We are delighted to have signed Milos Jojic, a versatile midfield player with enormous potential, who completes our squad," said Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc.

No details of the transfer fee were released, but German daily Bild and football magazine Kicker report Jojic cost around 2.2 million euros ($3m).

Although Jojic has played for Belgrade in the Champions League this season, he will be eligible to play for Dortmund in their last 16 clash against Zenit St Petersburg next month.

Sunderland sign Scotland's Bridcutt, Diakite leaves

Scotland midfielder Liam Bridcutt has joined Sunderland from second-tier Brighton and Hove Albion, the English Premier League club announced on Friday.

"Brighton midfielder Liam Bridcutt has become Sunderland's fifth signing of the January transfer window," read a statement on the Sunderland website.

Bridcutt follows Spaniard Marcos Alonso and Argentinians Oscar Ustari, Santiago Vergini and Ignacio Scocco in joining Sunderland this month.

"I have met some of the lads and the staff already, so I am just looking forward to getting out onto the training pitch now," Hennessey told the Palace website.

Palace also announced that attacking midfielder Jason Puncheon's loan move from Southampton has been turned into a permanent transfer.

"It is great to sign a permanent deal," said Puncheon, who hails from nearby Croydon. "It's something I dreamt about when I was a kid, so I'm pleased to get it done."

Argentine defender Insaurralde loaned to PAOK

Argentine defender Juan Manuel Insaurralde has joined PAOK on a six-month loan deal from Spartak Moscow, the Greek Super League team announced on Friday.
