Vincent Kompany says that Everton pulled off a "clever piece of business" by signing Gareth Barry and Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has paid tribute to Everton for their deadline-day signings.

The Toffees left it late on Monday but brought in Kompany's City teammate Gareth Barry and compatriot Romelu Lukaku on season-long loan deals.

Kompany feels that The Merseysiders, who also recruited James McCarthy from Wigan Athletic for £13m, may have done the best business during the transfer window.

"Everton made two great signings in Barry and Lukaku," Kompany said on Twitter. "Clever piece of business.

"Arguably the best deals of this transfer window."

However, Everton lost Marouane Fellaini to Manchester United in the final hour.
