List Of All The Football Transfers in The EPL

footy news blog

What an absolutely busy transfer market we had! the transfer windows is now officially closed and there have been good buys by clubs and some great captures like Tevez and Mascherano to West Ham and the conclusion of the Ashley Cole saga.

I have to say i’m pretty dissapointed with Manchester United who only managed to capture Michael Carrick & Tomasz Kuszczak while selling/loaning out 18 players including Rossi to Newcastle, there’s rumors that they have signed Reo-Coker from West Ham but i’ve not seen it officially announced anywhere yet.

I think besides West Ham, clubs like Newcastle,Spurs,Portsmouth and Liverpool have made excellent purchases.
