As the January transfer window has now closed, it's time to assess all of the singings in the January window to see which ones will help their team stay safe from relegation, make Europe or just stay mid table. Out of all of the moves by these clubs I see three that stood out. Who was your clubs best move? Did you like your clubs transfer window? Let us know by tweeting us at DST_Tweets.
Note: These aren't in order
Transfer: Manchester United --> Everton
Morgan Schneiderlin made his name known at Southampton as he was one of the first ones to make the ever so famous move out of the St Mary's Stadium. With teams like Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United all going after him he seemed like he was going to finally get a chance to show on a larger scale how good he was. Sadly, he was a forgotten man in the era of Louis van Gaal and José Mourinho. Finally, he will get a chance to play at an Everton side that needs a consistent midfielder to give actual competition to Ross Barkley and James McCarthy. Since joining Everton, they have not lost a match and beat teams like Manchester City, Crystal Palace (not that impressive), they drew Stoke away from home, and as I am writing this, they are 6-3 up on Bournemouth. Schneiderlin may be the factor that can help sneak Everton into the Europa League for next season.
Transfer: Hull City ---> West Ham United
Robert Snodgrass was one of the Hull's only hopes of staying up this season. He is fast, amazing with his feet and one of the best free-kick takers in the league. Obviously, all of the reporting about West Ham will be about Dimitri Payet leaving but with this signing, I think it won't make them forget about Payet, but with his seven goals and three assists this season for a team that has trouble scoring, West Ham fans will quickly love Snodgrass. I hate admitting it since I predicted West Ham to go down but this is a fantastic move.
Transfer: Napoli ---> Southampton
Manolo Gabbiadini is one of those buys that is high risk/high reward. The reason I put him on here is that I believe Southampton don't have consistency between Charlie Austin, Shane Long and Dušan Tadić, so the style of play of the Italian will suite them as they try to climb the table. His best attributes are short passing and his long distance threat. He is great from outside the box or in tough angles (as we saw today) and also is a great freekick taker. Even though three goals in six starts for Napoli isn't amazing, I think he brings a different threat than their other strikers. I would give him some time, we have seen many players have an issue adjusting to the Premier League from Italy.
