As much as people hate to admit it, we all love the January transfer window. It may have started slow this year but with a £10million new signing at Newcastle, Gary Cahill arriving in West London and Thierry Henry’s return to Arsenal; it is really starting to heat up.
There is no way that this month will see the same amount of money spent as this time last year, but the more days that go by , the more clubs that will get involved, with all 20 Premier League clubs wanting to do something before February 1st. The January transfer window is unique, in that players do not have a pre season to get to know their team mates and if they are fit, they will be thrown straight into the side. Deals seem to happen so fast as in a matter of days a player could have played for two separate clubs in the same division.
Come deadline day, every football fan will be engrossed in the internet and the TV to see if their club can do any last minute business. But for now, here is my top ten best aspects of the January transfer window.
