So with the window closing in the early hours of this morning there was quite a bit of last minute action.
Paul Konchesky rejoined his old manager Hodgson at Liverpool, providing competition at left back.
AC Milan have probably done the best bit of business this transfer window, after bringing in Ibrahimovich for a cut price, they now have Robinho signed from Man City for a reported 15 mill after he arrived two years earlier at the Sky Blues for 32 mill. Moving out of Milan is Italian striker Marco Borriello who has joined Roma on loan, and Huntelaar who has signed for Schalke.
Staying in Italy, long serving Juventus midfielder Camoranesi has joined Stuttgart after 8 years at the club.
Birmingham were busy as they signed former Arsenal player Alexander Hleb, some Chilean player Beausejour and Spartak Moscow defender Martin Jiranek.
Stoke were also active in the last day loaning in Eidur Gudjohnsen and Jermaine Pennant, while they have finally signed Portsmouth captain Marc Wilson.
Sunderland have smashed their transfer record by signing Asamoah Gyan, which is a great signing and should ensure they stay strong in the Premier League. Asamoah had a great World Cup with Ghana, yet will be remembered for missing that penalty against Uruguay in the dying minutes of their Quater-Final match.
Elsewhere Tottenham are still awaiting confirmation on the signing of Van der Vaart from Real Madrid.
Newcastle didn’t make anymore signings yet I believe their squad should be right if we avoid major injuries. Sweet.
