Richard Jolly: Transfer Window Verdict


With Joe Cole loaned to Lille and Christian Poulsen going to Evian, two overpaid earners from the Roy Hodgson era are gone. The former manager's best buy, Raul Meireles, is another matter altogether and he could be missed. Among the arrivals, Sebastian Coates is the extra centre-back they needed while Craig Bellamy, coming in as David Ngog goes out, brings pedigree and versatility to the forward line.

Verdict: Did well to dispose of the deadwood, while Bellamy could be a bargain and Coates is one for the future. But losing Meireles to Chelsea may backfire.

The Rest
