We’re approaching that time of the transfer window where Sky Sports rev the engines for their most exciting day of the season – or so it seems. Transfer business has been quieter this January than in past windows, but deadline day always promises to be a thrilling ride for both clubs and supporters.
Many clubs will be looking to force a drop in transfer fees from others as the deadline nears. And while clubs will be keen to add to their squads this winter, an eye for a bargain deal remains a priority.
At this stage, a number of high profile Premier League targets have been snapped up and are now off the market. A good handful of clubs may be disappointed that a name like Yann M’Vila has now moved on from France. But there is relief in that it may be a while until we see his name linked to England again.
Part of the draw of deadline day is that it always throws in a couple of surprises; a few curveballs that would otherwise have seemed unlikely. As of now, however, there are still players available who continue to see their names linked with a move to England.
