thumbnail Hello,

From big money moves to loans and free transfers, Goal picks a starting XI from some of the most interesting deals to take place before the deadline passed on Friday night


Goalkeeper signings were few and far between during the January transfer window. Crystal Palace signed Wayne Hennessey from Wolves and Everton brought in 17-year-old Jindrich Stanek, but Sunderland's Oscar Ustari, who made his debut in the FA Cup against Kidderminster, gets the nod.

DEADLINE DAY ON GOAL

Fulham sign £11m Mitroglou
Done Deals: All the January transfer moves
He may not have displayed the sort of form which earned him a place in the Netherlands starting XI for the World Cup final, but Johnny Heitinga has made his way into our starting XI. Out of favour at Everton, the centre-back has moved to Fulham and could be involved immediately following the departure of Philippe Senderos.

Heitinga is joined at the back by Kurt Zouma. The 19-year-old defender is highly rated and was snapped up by Chelsea in a deal worth around £12 million, but the French youngster has been loaned back to Saint-Etienne for the rest of the season.

Another Chelsea player who will not be with the club for the rest of the current Premier League campaign is Ryan Bertrand. A full-back by trade, Bertrand slots into our defensive three after making a move to Aston Villa which could yet see him work his way into the England squad for the 2014 World Cup.

Another new Chelsea signing, Mohamed Salah, makes the Goal Transfer Window XI. Jose Mourinho snatched the winger from within Liverpool's grasp in the final days of January, and the former Basel man will offer competition for the likes of Willian, Eden Hazard and Andre Schurrle.

The Stamford Bridge contingent on our XI is completed by Nemanja Matic. The midfielder returned to the club after a short spell with Benfica in a £21m move and has already made three appearances for Mourinho.

On the left, Napoli's Pablo Armero, who impressed some high-profile clubs while at Udinese, could prove to be a shrewd loan signing by West Ham manager Sam Allardyce.

In attack, Wilfried Zaha could finally get the chance to play regularly that he has craved since moving to Manchester United during a loan at Cardiff City, while Juan Mata was undoubtedly the signing of the transfer window, joining the Old Trafford club in a £37m deal from Chelsea.

Completing the side is Kostas Mitroglou, the £11m man charged with scoring the goals to keep Fulham in the Premier League following a deadline day move from Olympiakos.
