January’s transfer window has not been open a week and already some serious business has been done.
Now I’ll admit that these first few days of the year I’ve had my eye off the ball – but my god, some amazing transfers have not only been done already, but already seen rewards on the pitch.
Chief among these must be the scooping up of Demba Ba by Chelsea, he’s already netted a brace on his debut!
In addition, Joe Cole looked the business once again for West Ham, who also have added Marouane Chamakh to their stable of strikers, Wigan have bagged Roger Espinoza, Chelsea’s Danuiel Sturridge has joined Liverpool, while English fans will be keen to see how the dual-heritage German performs for Spurs after his switch from Schalke.
And the surprise star signing of the window could yet be the awesome marauding French full-back Mathieu Debuchy, whose signiature could revitalise Newcastle’s season yet.
That’s all in less than a week! If things carry on this way, an already explosive Premier League season could be braced to get even better – teams and players may not like them, but from a fan’s perspective, god bless the transfer window.
