So at 11pm 1st September the transfer window closed. We have seen overall stupid amounts of money spent in the premier league Infact the highest ever, but how to do you sum up Blues ins and outs?
Well for me we started the window with Lee Bowyer and even at that stage there was a warning that deals would be completed late in the window and so that proved to be
D.Sanderson (Loan), F.Thorndike (Permanent), J.Ruddy (Permanent), P.Placheta (Loan), A.Trusty (Loan), E.Longelo (Loan), K.Bielik (Loan), H.Mejbri, (Loan) and T.Chong (Permanent)
All great players that have helped to strengthen our club. The outgoings from the club whilst greater in number have for me not caused to much damage and were expected
Fran Villalba – €0.5M, Iván Sánchez – €0.1M, Jérémie Bela – Free, Archie Matthews – Free, Kristian Pedersen – Free, Oriol Soldevila – Free, Kane Thompson-Sommers – Free, Connal Trueman – Free, Josh Andrews – Loan, Ivan Sunjic – Loan, Kyle Hurst, Sam Cosgrove – Loan, Odin Bailey – Undisclosed, Keyendrah Simmonds – Loan, Marcel Oakley – Loan and Ryan Woods – Undiclosed
Overall I think this has been a good window for the blues. The incoming players have helped strengthen the team and despite not getting a striker signed we are in a much better position. The standout signing for me is that of Tahith Chong from Manchester United, whilst official figures have not been released it is believed that the initial outlay was £1.5 million with further add-ons and a sell on clause made this a brilliant piece of business.
Well done to all at the club and now to see them together and getting the results
