With the January transfer window sneaking up on the Premier League sides, it is a chance for unhappy players to earn a move away from their current club to earn some first team football on a regular basis. Whether it be an older player hoping for one last hurrah at a big club or an international player looking to break into their side for the Euro’s next summer players will definitely be on the move after Christmas.
The January transfer window can often be the start of a clubs escape from relegation or push for the European places but it has also come in for some criticism in the past few years. Some players have moved in January in the past for extortionate prices, for example Andy Carroll and Fernando Torres, and not lived up to their hype, so it could be described as a time for panic buying. We are hoping for some more big money signings at the big clubs to bring even more talent to the Premier League and for squad players to get their chance at new clubs ahead of a captivating end to the Premier League season, followed by Euro 2012.
