Latest EPL January 2017 transfer news for all clubs
To date, there are not any great surprises in the list by club below of January 2017 winter transfers. With only about a week to go until the close of the transfer window, titan Premier League clubs are looking to strengthen their squads to finish at the top of the table as other sides battle to avoid relegation. Of note is popular Chelsea footballer Oscar’s transfer to China. Chelsea and Shanghai SIPG have agreed to terms for the permanent transfer of Oscar. Skilful and tenacious, the 25-year-old has been a Chelsea player for four-and-a-half years, key to winning the Premier League, League Cup and Europa League as well as earning two Chelsea Goal of the Season awards after amazing strikes against Juve in 2012, on his full Chelsea debut, and QPR in 2014.
Chelsea is currently sitting in first place on the English Premier League Table way out in front of the other titan EPL clubs in the league title race this campaign. As a result, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has not hired any new footballers to date in the January transfer window. However there are quite a few footballers that will be leaving the Blues in addition to Oscar including Patrick Bamford (Middlesbrough, £5.5m), John Obi Mikel (free, Tianjin TEDA), Jay Dasilva (loan, Charlton), Marco van Ginkel (loan, PSV), Jamal Blackman (loan, Wycombe), Jordan Houghton (loan, Doncaster), Izzy Brown (loan, Huddersfield), Fankaty Dabo, Charlie Colkett and Islam Feruz (loan, Swindon).
Dutch midfielder Marco van Ginkel has extended his contract with Chelsea until 2019. Van Ginkel will now spend the rest of the 2016-17 campaign on loan with PSV, the club he helped to the Eredivisie title last season. Van Ginkel, 24, arrived at Stamford Bridge in summer 2013 before enjoying loan times with AC Milan and Stoke City. Last season his key impressive performances in his native Netherlands contributed to PSV lifting the league title. Oscar is highly regarded by fans, players and staff alike, scoring 38 times in 203 Chelsea appearances. Oscar arrived at Chelsea in summer 2012 transferring from Internacional in his native Brazil, to make his debut as a sub away at Wigan before gaining attention with a terrific effort against Antonio Conte’s Juventus at Stamford Bridge.
Oscar picked up his first medal with Chelsea in the Europa League, playing the full 90 minutes of their 2-1 win over Benfica in the final in Amsterdam before becoming a key player under Portugal manager Jose Mourinho, able to play well at both ends of the pitch. Oscar came off the bench to help the Blues secure a League Cup final victory against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium in London in March 2015, with the Premier League title secured at Stamford Bridge in early May. In last year’s campaign, Oscar netted a brilliant first-half hat-trick in Chelsea’s FA Cup win against MK Dons. Conte’s arrival in the summer 2017 to replace Jose Mourinho who is current manager at Manchester United led to a more intense role for Oscar at the beginning of the 2016-17 campaign, but the switch to a 3-4-3 formation in October saw Oscar’s opportunities diminish, and he now heads to Shanghai, China to play for his former Chelsea coach Andre Villas-Boas for a fee of reportedly £52m at Shanghai SIPG.
