Okay – this sounded like a good idea at the time when I found a run down of all the January Premiership based deals done so far but I’m beginning to regret it now.

Plenty of sides have had a few outgoings so far this month, but surprisingly very few have actually been that active in terms of recruiting people.

At a quick count Norwich are the busiest with a number of additions to the playing squad, but then a side fighting for their life like Aston Villa – well the telephone seems off the hook.

The established ‘top’ clubs haven’t been that busy either, no signings for Manchester City, Manchester United, and only one for Arsenal, one for Liverpool and a few clubs don’t even get a subject line and then a blank space.

With the summer transfer window seeing an increase in spending on the season before, it’s not looking like January of this year will unless the next week and a half really see things hot up!

As an aside – I’m not searching for fees if they haven’t been announced and all that malarky and any deals that have gone through this morning won’t be updated here – I’m not that conscientious!

Southampton haven’t been particularly busy, the signing of Charlie Austin from Queens Park Rangers for a reported £4million and the departure of on loan Steven Caulker so he could complete a move to Liverpool on loan – but possibly so far Southampton have got the bargain of the window in the shape of the 26 year old free scoring England forward.
