January transfer deadline day promised much with a number of clubs attempting to bolster their squads for the remainder of the season.
It proved to be a relatively quiet window in terms of major transfers, but Arsenal boosted their midfield with the loan signing of Kim Kallstrom from Spartak Moscow.
Dimitar Berbatov left Fulham for Monaco on loan, while the Premier League side brought in the likes of Konstantinos Mitroglou, Lewis Holtby and Johnny Heitinga.
The window ended in disappointment for Liverpool, however, as they failed to sign Yehven Konoplyanka from Dnipro, while Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur also failed to add to their squads.
It proved to be a prosperous window for Crystal Palace as the London outfit added five new players, while Chelsea acquired highly-rated centre-back Kurt Zouma.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for Germany's Julian Draxler but it looks as if a move for the Schalke man will not go through. The latest name to be linked with the North London club is Kim Kallstrom, who would join on loan.
"BREAKING: Newcastle have had an £8million offer for Papiss Cisse this morning from a mystery club in the Middle East."

"[Manager Danny Wilson] called me yesterday and wanted me to come play and help the team push out the relegation zone. Hopefully I can help the team achieve that this season.
"I wouldn't say I'm fit yet, but the only way to do so is to play games. The more I play, the better I'll get."
"He knows the environment, he's a prolific goalscorer and I think that we can make him better. He'll be a good asset to the club.
"He seems like a very focused player & is delighted to be here. He represents good value for money & he will score goals for us."
"The challenge for him now is to push for a place in the team and prove between now and the end of the season he is worth a longer-term deal with the club."
According to The Telegraph, Rodgers said in today's press conference: "There’s no update. There’s an interest in the player, but we’ll see how it evolves. It’s a little complicated. The staff over in Ukraine have done really well to put us in the position we’re in, but time is against us. I’m happy with the players I’ve got if we don’t bring anyone in. But let’s hope we can do something. Konoplyanka is the only signing there could be."
The Northern Echo quotes Poyet as saying: "From the beginning of the morning, we started to deal with the Lee Cattermole situation. I am late because in the last few hours we have got to a really impressive point. The offer and the situation is not easy. Nothing is finalised. It is still ongoing."
"I like Kevin," BBC Sport quotes Redknapp as saying. "He's a good pro and a good lad who needs to get his career up and running again.
"He was a good player at Reading and my sides have played against him many times. This is a great opportunity for him. I like him a lot - he's a good player and a good person."
“I’m here because I want to fulfil the club’s targets and I want to help the club achieve their goals. I was really flattered that they wanted me so badly and I’m really happy to be here."
“I’m really happy that I will work with Rene Meulensteen. I know that he has a lot of experience in football. He explained to me how he works and I am really looking forward to working with him."
It could be a race against the clock, especially because Taylor is in Swansea with his wife, who is due to give birth to their second child.
"It was a case of once again proving his fitness, as he did with Yeovil, and then when the bid came in, reaching agreement with Crystal Palace.
"We are fortunate to have some excellent goalkeepers here at Wolves, with Carl Ikeme and Aaron McCarey as the senior men and some more good young goalkeepers in behind."
He wrote on Instagram: "Frimmy all the best for your future. It is good to know you. It was a great time bro! Good luck in Barnsley, you'll smash it there!! Love you 👊 #bro #love #dench #aha #gihhhhh #frimmy #poldi"
Widespread reports have claimed that Berbatov is expected to leave the Premier League completely in favour of a loan switch to Ligue 1 outfit Monaco.
"It's still in the balance," Moody told the London Evening Standard. "Ultimately we can't control what Blackpool want to do - chairman Karl Oyston is the man who has the whole deal in his hands. If we get to 10 o'clock and nothing is decided then he will be left with a choice of not keeping Tom or letting him come to us for a good chunk of money."
Yeovil manager Gary Johnson told the club's official website: “I am very pleased to be able to bring Tom into our squad from Manchester United. He’s a player that can play either side wide or as a regular number 10."
A statement on the club's official website said: "Crystal Palace would like to place on record our thanks to Darcy for his service to the football club and we wish him well in his future career."
He said: “The idea with Liam is many, many things. One, how important it is to have a British player. It’s important that we got him at that age and at the price we got him for, and he knows the way we want to play and understands the game. When you put it all together, it’s a great acquisition.”
"I am just thankful to get my chance here and hopefully I can prove that I am a good signing and start scoring goals for fun. My message to the fans is that I´m looking forward to playing and scoring goals and winning things here."
The striker is believed to have been the subject of a rejected bid from Premier League side Cardiff City today. Well, there's still under three hours to go!
Co-chairman Steve Parish has told BBC Radio Five Live: "We're very close to signing three other players - we should have those done before the window closes. The medicals are all done and we're just finalising paperwork.
"We're very pleased with today, and I think the supporters will be when the final ones are announced. It's been a long, difficult day and we've got the four that we wanted, as long as we get them over the line."
"When everything was completed last night I sat down and I couldn't believe it. As I said before, it's been a pretty hectic three or four days but I'm happy."
I think he's happy... The loan deal runs until the end of the season, but Juventus have the option to buy in the summer.
Coates told BBC Radio Five Live: "The Lee Cattermole deal is dead. We thought that was going to happen and it hasn't - we're not quite sure why. We thought there was a deal to be done, but now there isn't, you need to ask Sunderland about that."
"I spoke to Tony and it's amazing how well Tony has done there since he came in, and he said to me I was someone he needs, someone who can run at people and create some magic in the final third. Steve has worked hard behind the scenes to get me to Palace and I'm grateful for that.
"I had a gut feeling - Palace was for me and I'm going to be happy to play in a Palace shirt."
“He is a player we have been monitoring for some time and has arrived with a real hunger to prove himself in the Barclays Premier League.”
