Robin van Persie to Chelsea, Saido Berahino to Tottenham, transfer window deadline day must be around the corner…Published January 28, 2016
It’s nearly the end of the January transfer window and fans across up and down the country are feverishly getting their fix of transfer gossip, hoping that their club’s chairman digs deep to fund the purchase of a player that can either save their season or become the subject of a myriad of insulting chants.
Football. Don’t you just love it!
There haven’t been too many big signings this month but there is still time for a big deal or two, it only takes a few seconds to send off that all important fax and agents will have all relevant clubs on speed-dial, keen to hawk their client to all and sundry in search of their 10%.
Sky Bet offers a vast array of Premier League betting markets though transfer bets fluctuate madly, so keep a close eye on proceedings.
Saido Berahino is indebted to the way West Bromwich Albion have helped to nurture his obvious talents, the young former England Under 21 international having represented the Baggies since the age of 11, indeed the forward has so much respect for the club that he stormed off on a Twitter huff when the Hawthorns side refused to sell the youngster to Tottenham.
Since last summer’s fall-out it’s been pretty clear that Berahino would be on his way in January and a move to Tottenham remains the solid bet with SkyBet offering 6/4 on Berahino moving to White Hart Lane before the transfer window slams shut on Monday evening.
Hot-shot Jamie Vardy, who was fairly unknown six months ago, continues to be linked with a move to join one of the big-boys and the 29-year-old may have a tough decision to make in relation to his future.
Whilst the England international will no doubt feel a great deal of loyalty towards the Foxes, the King Power Stadium side having helped to make the former medical technician a household name, he may also feel the time is right to secure a big pay-day and a move that could help double or even triple his wages.
SkyBet offers 12/1 on possible moves to Chelsea and Liverpool happening in this window, though a move in the summer could prove far more likely.
There are also fairly crazy rumours suggesting that unhappy Dutch veteran, and former Arsenal and Man United goal-machine, Robin van Persie Is a strong target of Premier League side Chelsea, however no bookmaker as yet is offering odds on such an eventuality, perhaps proving just how ridiculous such a transfer would be.
