Top 5 surprise English Premier League transfers
1. Mamadou Sakho, to Liverpool
The defender's arrival comes as a surprise only due to the sheer number of defenders already at Anfield. In addition to Sakho, Kolo Toure and Aly Cissokho also joined the Merseyside team. Let's not forget that Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel are also at the club, with Sebastian Coates and Martin Kelly waiting in the wings. So it's really surprising the French international was added to the squad on transfer deadline day.
