Emerson was unveiled as a Barcelona player before the season and was handed a start in their 2-1 win over Getafe before the international break.

However, the Brazilian full-back now finds himself in the colours of the LilyWhites after Barcelona decided to sell him on deadline day.

"I met with the directors of the club. They started to tell me that the situation of the club wasn’t good, that I came in a complicated time and that for that reason it was better to sell," Emerson told Marca.

"I repeated my intention to stay because I had a dream of playing here and contribute to Barcelona. I know that in my best form I was going to triumph here.

"I am smart and I realised in that moment, no matter what I said I was out. They were kicking me out with good words.

"I have the ambition to play. I could say that I am a footballer with a contract and I could have said I am staying, but I am a person who wants to be happy.

"I don’t want to stay at a club that I love but being sad. I knew their thoughts were that I don’t stay, without saying it.

"Then, I decided to leave. I said that I don’t want to stay and be sad."

There were quite a few deadline-day deals:
