The Three Best Transfers on Deadline Day

Latest News

Michy Batshuayi to Crystal Palace

The former Marseille man spent the first half of this season on loan with Valencia from his parent club Chelsea, with whom he saw little game time.

The 25-year-old had been closely linked to Everton and Tottenham during this transfer window, with both sides lacking a consistent front man.

However, it was Roy Hodgson who got the signature of the Belgian, who will be looking to improve on his tally of just one goal this season, albeit with few starts in La Liga.

Batshuayi has demonstrated his qualities in previous seasons, particularly with Borussia Dortmund where he netted seven goals in ten matches for the German side.

Steve Parish, the Crystal Palace chairman, said of the signing “Michy is a player we’ve long admired”. “He will be a magnificent addition to our squad”.

Palace have enjoyed good performances in recent weeks and with a top finisher as their striker, more excellent results are sure to come.

Miguel Almiron to Newcastle

Miguel Almiron joins Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle as their new record signing, with the Paraguayan attacker costing the Geordies around £20 million, beating the £16 million they paid for Michael Owen almost fifteen years ago.

Almiron had scored thirteen goals and notched eleven assists for Atlanta United during last season, as he helped his former team win their first ever MLS Cup.

Benitez will be pleased with the new arrival, and the Spaniard unsurprisingly had a big part to play in Almiron’s decision to make the move, saying “The league is very competitive, this is a historic club and Rafa Benitez himself [are] the main reasons why I am here now”.

The South American has been included in the MLS team of the year two years in a row now and played thirteen times for his country, with the 24-year-old on the receiving end of plaudits from those who watch him for his dribbling ability and calmness in front of goal.

It’s about time that Newcastle made a signing that fans can get excited about, and there is no doubt that Almiron will have the full backing from the supporters.

Youri Tielemans to Leicester City

Claude Puel’s Leicester City announced on deadline day the signing of Youri Tielemans from French side Monaco on loan until the end of the season as Adrien Silva goes in the opposite direction as part of the deal.

The 21-year-old has made twenty appearances for the struggling Ligue 1 outfit this season, scoring five and providing one assist.

The Belgian was comfortably one of, if not the best performer for Monaco during the campaign in the side’s unexpected fight for survival in the French division.

Having played for his nation and the 2018 World Cup and earned experience in the Champions League, Leicester will feel this is a deal that will only add to their squad despite the loss of Adrien Silva.

Tielemans is quoted as saying of the move “The Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world, I’m really happy to be here and I’m excited to get started”.

The former Anderlecht man isn’t the only one who’s excited by the move, with Leicester fans surely thrilled at the announcement of their new number eight.
