The January Transfer Window is in its closing phases and teams are looking to make last-minute decisions as for who to add and subtract from their squads.
Sport360 brings you latest news on some of the latest big transfers.
ROBERT SNODGRASS (Hull City to West Ham)
DONE DEAL – £12m (Dh55.3m)
Either Hull are preparing for life in the Championship or coach Mauro Silva really doesn’t rate Snodgrass. Either way, the Scotland international has penned a three-and-a-half year deal after seven goals for the Tigers.
KEAGAN DOLLY (M. Sundowns to Montpellier)
DONE DEAL – €1.8m (Dh70m)
Montpellier’s thrashing at Marseille on Friday night is ample reason why they’ve made so many signings this January with the South Africa midfielder their fourth recruit of the window. The 24-year-old has signed until 2020.
PATRICK VAN AANHOLT (Sunderland to C. Palace)
DONE DEAL – £14m (Dh64.5m)
Sam Allardyce has got his man with the fullback undergoing a medical on Friday night to be reunited with his former manager at Palace. Van Aanholt has been one of Sunderland’s brightest performers in a miserable season.
CLEMENT GRENIER (Lyon to Roma)
The France playmaker has turned down a move to Premier League clubs West Ham and Middlesbrough to move to the Italian capital until the end of the season. The 26-year-old has fallen out of favour at Lyon.
JORGE (Flamengo to Monaco)
DONE DEAL – €8.5m (Dh33.4m)
Monaco’s penchant for farming young South American talent continues with the 20-year-old left-back flying to the Principality today to conclude a deal. Jorge earned his first Brazil cap earlier this month.
With the hoard of players from Europe’s major league’s moving to the cash-rich Chinese Super League more are expected to follow suit, particularly from the Premier League.
In light of the transfer trend, the brilliant 442toons have put together this animation of a Premier League clearance sale with the CSL blowing the rest of the competition out of the water.
Who do you think will be the next star setting sail for Chinese shores?
Patrice Evra can be a supremely likable individual.
It was with a heavy heart that Manchester United fans bid him farewell in the summer of 2014 and now, just three seasons later, it’s Juventus’ turn to waive him off with fondness and gratitude.
The 35-year-old made 82 appearances for the Old Lady of Italian football, winning two Serie A titles along the way.
A great character on and off the pitch, Evra left a lasting impression in Turin and Juventus have put together the above video uploaded to their YouTube channel as a tribute to the left-back.
