Two major signings for Chelsea and Crystal Palace at the end of the transfer window

End of January transfer window time for the Premiership has seen Man United taking a big loss with the return of Wilfred Zaha to Palace and Chelsea paying over £23 million for Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina.

Activity has been muted compared to recent years.

This could be explained by the introduction of Fifa’s Financial Fair Play rules – with many clubs looking to balance the books to avoid punitive measures.

Chelsea are responsible the two biggest transfers – signing Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina for £23.3m.

Mohamed Salah went in the other direction, joining the Italian club on loan until the end of the season.

World-Cup winner Andrea Schurrle left the West London club bound for Wolfsburg for a fee of £22m.

Juan Cuadrado was one of the star performers for an impressive Colombian side at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Crystal Palace bring in several players and completed their business right up to the deadline.

Recently appointed Head Coach Alan Pardew has signed four players.

Winger Wilfred Zaha, previously at Palace before a switch to Manchester United, signed permanently yesterday.

Lee-Chung-Yong also signed on a permanent basis from Bolton Wanderers.

The club have also signed Norwegian central midfielder Andreas Breimyr from Bryne FK and striker Keshi Anderson, from non-league Barton Rovers.

Tottenham Hotspur have signed MK Dons youngster Dele Alli for £5m.

He will be loaned back to the side for the remainder of the season.

Aaron Lennon, who has made 350 appearances for the North London club, left to join Everton on loan.

There is still time for the London clubs below the Premier League to make changes as the window for loan signings remains open.
