After a month of ins, outs and speculation, the January transfer window slammed shut at 11pm on Thursday evening. It was quiet month among Premier League teams compared to previous years, with concerns over profitability and sustainability rules widespread.
Manchester United and Manchester City were both active in the market, although marquee arrivals were not forthcoming. For Erik ten Hag it was about trimming the fat of his squad with loan exits while Pep Guardiola planned for the future.
The other 18 Premier League teams had mixed fortunes throughout January, with few enjoying news of significant arrivals and many unable to flex their financial muscle. Below, ManchesterWorld has graded the windows of United and City compared to their rivals.
1. Arsenal - E
No incomings for Arsenal, who were thought to want a striker but have been kept at bay by profit and sustainability concerns.
2. Aston Villa - C
A deadline-day move for Morgan Rogers could cost them up to £15m if bonuses are met. Right-back Kosta Nedeljkovic also joined but has been loaned straight back to Red Star Belgrade. It's been a decent window overall for Villa.
3. Bournemouth - D
Striker Enes Unal arrived on a deadline-day loan from Getafe, with an option to buy for around £14m. Otherwise, it was a month of loan exits including David Brooks and Hamed Traore.
4. Brentford - C
Sergio Reguilon on loan from Tottenham the headline arrival, following his early United exit. Goalkeeper Hakon Valdimarsson and midfielder Yunus Emre Konak, from Elfsborg and Sivasspor respectively, typical Brentford signings.
