    "Redknapp bringing Ryan Nelsen in from #BRFC. Bassong to #Wolves. Pavlyuchenko to Lokomotiv. Pienaar unlikely to go to #EFC on loan"

    1/31/2012 10:43:53 PM
  • When Zamora takes the lead headline its the worst deadline day ever

  • David Pizarro and Bobby Zamora have been the deals of the day for me, nice to see Djribil Cisse back in the Premier league too #deadlineday
  • So all the major deals we had been waiting on are complete. Louis Saha has joined Spurs and Bobby Zamora has gone to QPR. Manchester City also completed their loan move for David Pizarro.
    1/31/2012 10:59:51 PM
  • It's now 11pm and the TRANSFER WINDOW HAS CLOSED. Despite that, we're still waiting on a few deals, mostly concerning Tottenham.
    1/31/2012 11:01:09 PM
  • Tottenham are in for Blackburn defender Ryan Nelson, which if goes through, would mean Sebastien Bassong leaves for Wolves. Roman Pavlyuchenko meanwhile could still depart for Lokomotiv Moscow.
    1/31/2012 11:03:45 PM
  • Bobby Zamora on his move to QPR: "I think this was the right time for me to have a fresh challenge."
    1/31/2012 11:06:03 PM

    1/31/2012 11:11:51 PM
  • DONE DEAL: Wolves have completed a deal for 25-year-old Tottenham centre-back Sebastien Bassong on loan for the rest of the season.
    1/31/2012 11:16:52 PM
  • Harry Redknapp talking earlier said Sebastien Bassong would only be allowed to leave if Tottenham had a replacement lined up, which presumably means Ryan Nelson is due to join from Blackburn.
    1/31/2012 11:19:57 PM
  • At this stage it would appear that most of the major deals we were expecting to be done have been confirmed. There are two outstanding transfers we are waiting for news on - Roman Pavlyuchenko leaving Tottenham and Ryan Nelson arriving. Sordell's move to Bolton is yet to be confirmed as well.
    1/31/2012 11:24:34 PM
