Amount involved: EUR 4 Million
The Queens Park Rangers moved to Southampton at a resounding 4 million Euros. The signing is the kind that one would not have anticipated for.
It is a great win for Charlie Austin. With the great players at Southampton, he is set to flourish.

Giannelli Imbula moves to Stoke City
Amount involved: EUR 18.3 million
The former FC Porto player will now put on a new Stoke City jersey. The deal was the biggest by far at the close of the transfer period, and it’s a big win for Stoke City.
The Potters have of late made notable signings such as Bojan and Xherdarn Shaqiri. Giannelli deal becomes advances the lengths to which they have come.
He will help cool things for Mark Hughes in the centre midfield.
Last, Stoke lost Steven N’Zonzi and was unable to replace him. Imbula thus becomes an excellent choice to replace him.
Jonjo shelve moves to Newcastle United
Amount involved: EUR 12 million
Jonjo leaves Swansea City and moves to Newcastle United. However, this deal may be seen as being overpriced. His signing, however, would play a significant role in helping Newcastle continue exerting their presence in the premier league.
The man has an incredible vision, and his passes are also on point. He is the kind of a person that the team precisely needs.
Mario Suarez moves Watford
Amount involved: EUR 4 million
This is an incredible signing by Watford from Fiorentina.
Several clubs in the premier league have wanted Mario Suarez for a long time. The likes of Liverpool ‘have openly shown their interest to sign him. But with all that interest, it is Watford who managed to bring the man into their camp.
The Hornets have done quite a lot both on and off the pitch, and this signing puts all that bare.
Fans are keen to see how well he will be able to fit in the Premier League. The luck on him is that he may not get the pressure to deliver immediately. That is because Watford is currently far away to safety from relegation.
Steven Naismith moves to Norwich City
Amount involved: EUR 8.5 million
Norwich City did not find it hard to convince the guys at Everton to part away with Steven Naismith. He is an underrated player in the Premier League. It is due to this fact that his career would never have grown while at Everton.
The transfer is however, overpriced, but as you know, January prices are always high. The only way to determine if it is money well spent is to wait and evaluate his performance.
