2024 January Transfer Window Ins & Outs

The 1st of February 2024 saw the 2024 January transfer window slam shut in England. Every year, there are huge rumours, shock moves and big news. The first transfer window of 2024 certainly didn’t disappoint. Here’s some of the biggest news from January 2024.

Premier League January Transfer Window News

Potentially the biggest news that came out of the winter window wasn’t even a transfer! Towards the end of January, Liverpool legend, Jürgen Klopp announced that he would be leaving at the end of the season. After 9 incredibly successful seasons, will Klopp be leaving Anfield with another Premier League trophy? Liverpool are currently sitting at the top of the table, with Manchester City hoping to close the gap with their game-in-hand. 

Now talking about the actual transfers, January was a rather quiet one in terms of money spent. After a record-breaking £2.44 billion spent in the Summer by Premier League clubs, only £96.2 million was spent this January. One of the biggest reasons for this is the recent profitability and sustainability rules which have been hitting clubs throughout the league. Manchester City are still being investigated, Nottingham Forest have been charged and Everton were deducted 10 points this season. This has led to a lot of Premier League clubs keeping a low radar this window.

Brighton stuck to their philosophy of signing young, high-potential players and brought in 6 players permanently, all of whom are under 20 years old, including Argentinian wonder kid Valentin Barco. Crystal Palace, surprisingly, were one of the league's top spenders after bringing in Adam Wharton for £22 million and Daniel Munoz for £8.5 million. Spurs were also active and brought in Timo Werner on loan and spent almost £27 million on Radu Dragusin. They also hijacked a deal for Swedish talent Lucas Bergvall, who was close to joining Barcelona. The transfer won’t go through until the Summer. 

Other Premier League transfers

  • Kosta Nedeljkovic to Aston Villa from Red Star Belgarde for £7.8 million
  • Enes Unal to Bournemouth from Getafe on loan
  • Sergio Reguilon to Brentford on loan from Tottenham
  • David Datro Fofana to Burnley on loan from Chelsea
  • Armando Broja on loan to Fulham from Chelsea
  • Alfie Harrison to Newcastle from Manchester City
  • Giovanni Reyna on loan to Nottingham Forest from Dortmund
  • Kalvin Phillips on loan to West Ham from Manchester City

EFL January Transfers 

A potential for the best January transfer window came from Championship play-off hopefuls, Hull City. After being hit with injuries in the run-up to the window, Hull needed to bolster their squad in the hope of keeping up their play-off dreams alive - and they did just that. 

Their defence was improved with the signings of Croatian U23 international goalkeeper Ivor Pandur and Ryan Giles who previously excelled at Middlesborough. Their midfield was strengthened with the additions of Turkish international and league and cup winner Abdulkadir Omur as well as two Championship winners in Fabio Carvalho and Anass Zaroury. Championship veteran Billy Sharp along with Netherland’s U21 Noah Ohio were brought in to help solve the injury problems up top. Quite the window for The Tigers. 

The Championship Winter window also saw Alex Pritchard walk away from Sunderland and straight into the Birmingham squad for a steal of £200,000. Blackburn brought in 7 signings in the hope of improving their current bottom-half position they did however lose their star man Adam Wharton. Ipswich brought in Wimbledon striker Ali Al-Hamadi along with three others to ensure they keep a hold of the automatic promotion spot. Middlesbrough lost their star player Morgan Rogers to Aston Villa for £8 million.
