England: English Premier League top 10 January transfers

The 10 biggest incoming Premier League
transfers of the January transfer window
after Tuesday’s final day of player trading
(*denotes fee as reported by British media):

Gabriel Jesus
Palmeiras (BRA) to Manchester City, £27
million* ($33.6 million, 31.3 million euros)
Jesus, 19, agreed to join City last year, but did
not formally complete his transfer until
earlier this month. The highly rated Brazil
forward has made two City appearances to
date and registered his first assist in
Saturday’s 3-0 FA Cup win at Crystal Palace.

Morgan Schneiderlin
Manchester United to Everton, £20 million
rising to £24 million
After being frozen out by Jose Mourinho at
Manchester United, Schneiderlin moved to
Everton on a four-and-a-half-year deal. The
move reunited the 27-year-old France
international with Ronald Koeman, who was
formerly his manager at Southampton.

Wilfred Ndidi
Genk (BEL) to Leicester City, £15 million*
Champions Leicester signed Nigeria
international Ndidi, 20, in the hope of
plugging the gap left by N’Golo Kante’s
departure to Chelsea last year. “He’s an
impressive player with a big future,” said
manager Claudio Ranieri.

Manolo Gabbiadini
Napoli (ITA) to Southampton, £14 million*
Southampton were the biggest movers on
transfer deadline day, shelling out around
£14 million to sign 25-year-old Gabbiadini
from Napoli. The former Sampdoria striker,
capped six times by Italy, signed a four-and-
a-half-year deal.

Patrick van Aanholt
Sunderland to Crystal Palace, £14 million*
Former Chelsea defender Van Aanholt, 26,
joined Palace from relegation rivals
Sunderland on a four-and-a-half-year
contract. The Dutchman played an important
role as Sunderland avoided relegation under
new Palace manager Sam Allardyce last

Robbie Brady
Norwich City to Burnley, £13 million*
Burnley broke their transfer record as the
deadline loomed with a swoop for former
Manchester United youngster Brady. The 25-
year-old Republic of Ireland international,
who can play in any position on the left
flank, penned a three-and-a-half year deal at
Turf Moor.

Saido Berahino
West Bromwich Albion to Stoke City, £12
million rising to £15 million
After 18 months of stagnation at The
Hawthorns, Berahino finally secured the
move he has long coveted. The 23-year-old
England Under-21, who last played in
September, will hope to recapture the form
that saw him finish as West Brom’s top
scorer in the 2014-15 season with 20 goals.

Jeff Schlupp
Leicester City to Crystal Palace, £12 million
Ghana winger Schlupp, made 24 appearances
as Leicester won the league last season, but
decided to find pastures new after falling
down the pecking order. He made an
inauspicious home debut, an attack of cramp
allowing Seamus Coleman to earn Everton a
1-0 win with a late strike.

Ademola Lookman
Charlton Athletic to Everton, £11 million*
Lookman, 19, became the most expensive
player in the history of England’s third tier
when he left League One Charlton for
Goodison Park on a four-and-a-half-year
deal. The England Under-20 international had
a dream debut, scoring a late goal in a 4-0
rout of Manchester City.

Robert Snodgrass
Hull City to West Ham United, £10.2 million
To the evident disappointment of incoming
Hull manager Marco Silva, top scorer
Snodgrass was allowed to join West Ham on
a three-and-a-half-year contract. The
Scotland international, who is expected to
take over set-piece duties from the departed
Dimitri Payet, said he had joined a club with
“real ambition”.
