Anthony Martial and Donny van de Beek.

January transfer window round-up

Tuesday 01 February 2022 10:50

The January transfer window allowed Manchester United to set up eight outgoing loan deals, with a permanent departure also confirmed on Tuesday.

The first move processed, four days into the new year, was Teden Mengi's switch to Birmingham City for the rest of the season. The young defender has made a promising start to life at St Andrew's and will be joined by Tahith Chong, when the Netherlands Under-21 international regains full fitness.

Axel Tuanzebe was next to clinch a fresh transfer, with his loan ended at Aston Villa to facilitate a similar deal with Serie A side Napoli. The centre-back has already gained some valuable experience in Italy.

Another defender, Ethan Laird, cut short his stay with Swansea City to switch Championship clubs by heading to promotion-chasing Bournemouth. Injury has prevented him from making his debut yet for Scott Parker's Cherries.

German move for Hoogewerf


Dillon leaves United on a permanent basis as he switches to the Bundesliga.

Anthony Martial, who came off the bench to play a part in the build-up to Marcus Rashford's dramatic injury-time winner against West Ham United last time out, tied up a loan to Spain for the remainder of the campaign. The France international will look to help fire Sevilla to success, with the team currently in second spot in La Liga, four points adrift of leaders Real Madrid.

With five days remaining of the window, Reece Devine traded St Johnstone for Walsall as another player changing loan clubs. The full-back will be challenging for a place at the Banks's Stadium with the League Two outfit.

While Devine was leaving Scotland, United stationed Amad in the Scottish top-flight when agreeing to a temporary move to Rangers. The lively winger made an instant impact in Glasgow, scoring within five minutes of his debut against Ross County, and is currently preparing for the Old Firm derby with Celtic on Wednesday.

On deadline day itself, Donny van de Beek completed his move to Everton for the rest of the season. The Netherlands midfielder links up with new Toffees boss Frank Lampard and will look to gain regular first-team football on Merseyside.

With midnight approaching on the final day of the month, confirmation was received that Matej Kovar's loan to Burton Albion had been processed in time. The young keeper signed a new contract with the Reds before sealing a second stint away, following an earlier spell with Swindon Town.

Finally, Dillon Hoogewerf completed a permanent transfer to Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday morning.
