Transfer Deadline Day; No BVB Deals


The January transfer window has slammed shut, and there wasn’t any action at Signal Iduna Park despite a number of fringe players being made available for loan. Surman was stated as saying he’s perfectly happy with the strength and depth of the Dortmund squad.

Biggest deal of the month was Gabriel Torje’s £9.5m move from Udinese to Juventus, with Junior Hoilett’s £9.25m switch from QPR to Arsenal close behind. In Germany, the deal of note was Schalke’s £3.2m purchase of Bayern Munich’s Diego Contento.
