Ndidi, Lookman in 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:
Palmeiras (BRA) to Manchester City, £27m ($33.6m, €31.3m)
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.
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.
Genk (BEL) to Leicester City, £15m
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.
Napoli (ITA) to Southampton, £14million
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 season.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
