This has been a surprisingly quiet transfer Deadline Day for the big Premier League teams. We haven't seen any of them make big signings that shake things up, and the entire league has actually made a profit during the January window.

Manchester City followed the trend and made no signings or sales during the window, only moving a couple of young players on loan. The only real interest was for Bayern Munich defender Holger Badstuber, but he went to Schalke 04 and the deal with City was off.

So as the clock ticks down in the window, should we expect any signings before 11:59pm?

“We said no. We have enough players. Good players. The window is important for the club, players. Every weekend I am so sad because I have to leave three players at home. While this happens why should we buy. If players leave, maybe.

“I’m happy.”

So we'll stay frustrated with our defense and wait for new full-backs until the summer? Pep better know what he's doing.
