Facing relegation and a search for a new manager, Stoke City knew action had to be taken during the January transfer window.
Either side of appointing Paul Lambert as Mark Hughes’ successor, the Potters swooped for right-back Moritz Bauer – who has since played in all four of Stoke’s Premier League fixtures – and powerful midfielder Badou Ndiaye, who provided an assist upon his debut against Bournemouth last weekend.
That, in addition to a loan deal for left-back Konstantinos Stafylidis, saw Stoke commit to an overall net spend of £20.52million last month according to Transfermarkt.
But some would argue Stoke didn’t address all of their issues in January. The Potters are still short of dependable firepower in the final third, their joint-top scorers Mame Biram Diouf and Xherdan Shaqiri netting just five times each in the Premier League this season, but failed to bring in another striker.
