Arsenal made a late foray in the January transfer window to sign Sweden
midfielder Kim Kallstrom on loan, the only major move by a top club on
Friday on a deadline day dominated by struggling Premier League sides
scrambling around to strengthen their squads. Trai Turner Panthers Jersey .
Kallstrom left Spartak Moscow to join Arsenal for the rest of the season
in what was the title challengers only recruit of the January window.
Chelseas only signing was 19-year-old Saint-Etienne defender Kurt Zouma,
who was immediately loaned him back to the French club until this
summer, while Liverpool failed in its bid to sign Ukraine winger Yevhen
Konoplyanka from Dnipro.
Otherwise, the late deals were exclusively being done by clubs battling
to avoid relegation from the worlds richest league.
Next-to-last Fulham was very active, bringing in Germany midfielder
Lewis Holtby on loan from Tottenham, Netherlands defender Johnny
Heitinga on a free transfer from Everton and Greece striker Kostas
Mitroglou from Olympiakos on a 4 1/2-year deal. Out of Craven Cottage
went Dimitar Berbatov to French team Monaco -- ending his eight-year
stint in English football -- Adel Taarabt to AC Milan and Philippe
Senderos to Valencia.
Crystal Palace, which has just climbed out of the bottom three, was even
busier, signing five players including winger Jason Puncheon on a
permanent basis from Southampton and midfielder Joe Ledley from Celtic.
Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer used his connections at former club
Manchester United to sign winger Wilfried Zaha on loan and full back
Fabio on a permanent deal, taking the number of signings by the
bottom-place Welsh club this month to seven.
Third-bottom West Ham turned to Serie A for the third time this window
to sign Napoli left back Pablo Armero on loan until the end of the
season, mirroring the deals that have already seen Italy internationals
Marco Borriello and Antonio Nocerino move to Upton Park.
Boosted by a huge three-year television deal taking effect at the start
of the season, Premier League clubs spent more than 600 million pounds
(then $932 million) in the summer transfer window.
Before Friday, they had splashed out 95 million pounds ($156 million) on
acquiring new players in January, according to football finance experts
Deloitte. It ensures English top-flight teams set a record for transfer
spending this season, breaking the 700-million pounds ($1.15 billion)
mark for the first time.
Having shattered Man Uniteds transfer record to sign Juan Mata for 37.1
million pounds ($61.2 million) from Chelsea, manager David Moyes spent
deadline day offloading players. As well as Fabio and Zaha, Italian
forward Federico Macheda was loaned out to second-tier Birmingham.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger turned to the 31-year-old Kallstrom, a
veteran of 108 caps for Sweden, after seeing his teams midfield options
hit by injury and suspension.
Aaron Ramsey will be sidelined for up to six weeks following a setback
in his recovery from a thigh problem, Jack Wilshere is also currently
out injured and Mathieu Flamini is suspended for the next three matches.
"Kim Kallstrom is a hugely experienced player," said Wenger, whose
second-place side is a point behind Manchester City in the standings.
"He is a midfielder with proven quality at both club and international
level."
Kallstrom, who is eligible to play in the Champions League, joined
Spartak in 2012 after six years at French club Lyon.
Liverpool, Tottenham and Premier League leader Manchester City all
failed to add to their squads in January.

Koufax, whose blazing fastball dominated baseball in the mid-1960s,
removed the protective goggles from his eyes and rested his arms on
Kershaws broad shoulders.TAMPA, Fla. - Lovie Smith is well aware of
Tampa Bays shaky track record in the NFL draft, as well as the role
recent failures have played in the Buccaneers missing the playoffs the
past six seasons.
The franchises third coach in four years has spent the last two months
overhauling the roster through free agency. Now, Smith and first-year
general manager Jason Licht are counting on filling more holes with an
infusion of young talent.
Barring a last-minute trade to move up or down in the selection process,
the Bucs have six picks in this weeks draft, beginning with No. 7
overall.
Needs include wide receiver, offensive line, and possibly targeting the
clubs quarterback of the future. As expected, Smith and Licht have given
little indication of how they may be leaning.
"I think if we had to play tomorrow, we could line up a pretty
competitive team at every position, but youre always trying to upgrade,"
Smith said. "There are some positions we would like to upgrade, but Ill
be saying that every year, and thats the way you should always be
thinking."
The Bucs have signed career backup Josh McCown to be their starting
quarterback. They also acquired six other projected new starters in free
agency: defensive end Michael Johnson, cornerback Alterraun Verner,
centre Evan Dietrich-Smith, tackle Anthony Collins, defensive tackle
Clinton McDonald and tight end Brandon Myers.
To ensure long-term success, though, Smith and Licht are adamant they
have to build through the draft.
The Bucs, who havent made the playoffs since 2007, have only one player
remaining on the roster who was drafted in 2009 or 2010 — the first two
springs of the reclamation project the team launched under former GM
Mark Dominik and ex-coach Raheem Morris.
It helps that its two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, the
third overall pick in 2010. But an inability to nurture other young
prospects into productive pros ultimately led to the demise of Dominik
and the two coaches he worked with: Morris and Greg Schiano, who was
dismissed in January after just two seasons.
"Is it hard to make up, and is it a hindrance? Thats probably one of the
reasons why Jason and I are both here right now,&qquot; Smith said
of failed drafts in general. Jerricho Cotchery Panthers Jersey.
"If you have to have one guy remaining you would like for it to be
Gerald, of course," Smith added. "Our plan is for us to do better on the
draft and make that our foundation. I feel like well do that."
Five things to remember as Smith and Licht continue to put their stamp
on the Bucs:
QB? MAYBE: While the consensus is Tampa Bay has a pressing need is for a
speedy receiver to play opposite Vincent Jackson, the Bucs lack a
clear-cut quarterback of the future. McCown is 34. And, theres no
indication Smith and Licht consider second-year pro Mike Glennon the
long-term solution. So if Johnny Manziel is available at No. 7, would
the Bucs balk at selecting a player who would almost certainly bring a
circus-like atmosphere to town?
"In terms of fan interest and selling tickets, we are lucky to work for
the Glazers, who have hired us both to make us a better football team.
... We are just going to make the best football decision, whats best for
our football team," Licht said. "I think Lovie and his staff can handle
the rest of it."
IF NOT A QB, THEN WHO?: Clemsons Sammy Watkins and Texas A&Ms Mike
Evans are among the top-rated receivers . Most people feel Watkins will
be long gone by the time the Bucs turn comes.
WELL-PREPARED: Smith spent the past year out of football after being
fired by the Chicago Bears following the 2012 season. Being off gave him
more time than usual to watch college games, thus get a head start on
evaluating talent for the draft.
DONT BE SURPRISED: The Bucs have one pick in every round except the
fourth. They may be tempted to trade out of the seventh spot, dropping
lower in the first round while adding additional selections in later
rounds. That seems more likely than moving up into the top five.
NEED VS. BEST PLAYER: Licht offers this spin on the traditional
draft-day strategy: "Our team needs in September are going to be totally
different than they are right now. The player you take you may not
think we have a need for him now, but a lot of times youre thankful you
have them when the season starts."
