The lack of an 11th-hour transfer revelation ensured it wasn’t a vintage deadline day in January ‘14, however, there were plenty of quality players switching allegiances who can provide their new clubs with a huge boost in the ensuing Premier League fixtures.
Fulham’s £11m capture of Olympiakos’s highly coveted Greek international striker has to be the coup of deadline day, while only Juan Mata’s transfer to Manchester United trumps it in the whole window.
The 25-year-old scoring sensation has bagged himself 17 goals from as many appearances for Olympiakos this season, which includes four separate hat-tricks.
With Tottenham loanee Lewis Hotlby also arriving at Craven Cottage to boost Fulham’s attacking threat, the Whites can give Southampton a shock in west London.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has wasted no time bringing in players from his former club Molde and using his legendary status at Old Trafford to pilfer some Manchester United talent too.
Fabio da Silva is a good edition at full-back, but the man likely to have the most impact is loanee Zaha.
The England winger had been frozen out under David Moyes at United, but is sure to get a chance to showcase his
mercurial talents at Cardiff, starting with sickly travellers Norwich, who have lost seven of their 11 away matches in the league.
Tony Pulis has waved a magic wand at Selhurst Park, lifting the Eagles to 14th by grinding out some life-breathing wins.
Not content with stiffening them up at the back, the Welshman conducted some great business in the window to bolster their options in every area, including the capture of much-sought after Ince junior.
Along with match-winner from the last two games, Jason Puncheon, who made his switch permanent, the Blackpool loanee can ensure Arsenal get a real run for their money at the Emirates.
