Scared clubs winter window woes – less than £40 million spent

Claret and Hugh‘s exclusive blogger and top agent Barry Silkman explained here ahead of the transfer window opening the winter window was a waste of time!So far he is being proved 100 per cent correct with spending on players so far amounting to just under £40 million and the Mail on line describing it as a ghost window.

Scared clubs winter window woes – less than £40 million spent

The only clubs to have bought players thus far are Brentford – £4 million, Brighton – £8 million and Spurs £25 million.

And it’s all down to two elements, that the quality of players at this time of the year isn’t there and clubs worrying about falling foul of profit and sustainability .

The 10 point punishment with which the Premier League slapped Everton  with another possibly on the way and Nottingham Forest also under threat has clearly scared clubs.

All of that plus clubs holding on to there best players has made this a window to forget as it heads towards the last week

 West Ham showed their hand on Wednesday to bring in Kalvin Phillips on loan which may tur out to be the best move by any club!

But speaking to Claret and Hugh tonight our top source declared this to be one of the toughest windows ever.

The stats given below would certainly appear to prove him correct.
