What Happened on Deadline Day?

What Happened on Deadline Day?

Another transfer deadline day has been and gone, most of us fans love it, but for the managers and players it must be a nightmare.

Their key players are linked with everyone, some stay and some go, but one thing is for certain everyone will wake up a little happier this morning now that the window is firmly shut.

The transfer coup of yesterday has to be Harry Redknapp’s signing of Scott Parker for £6 million from West Ham to Tottenham Hotspur.

The England international, last year’s player of the year by the Football Writers’ Association, surely is a snip at that price and will go a long way to giving Spurs another great season.

Surprise move of the day goes to Owen Hargreaves switching to rivals Manchester City on a free. There is no doubting Hargreaves ability as a player, but after his injury ravaged time at City’s rivals Manchester United why would the mega rich City take on the injury jinxed player.
Other noticeable moves were Mikel Arteta’s £10m movie from Everton to Arsenal, Craig Bellamy to Liverpool and Peter Crouch from Tottenham to Stoke for £10m.
