There is a reason Premier League clubs tend to avoid doing business during the January transfer window. As these ten deals prove, they can backfire horribly.

For every transfer completed during the winter window which proves successful, there are handfuls which work out badly for all parties.

One of the most famous was Fernando Torres‘ £50million switch to Chelsea in 2011.

If you think we’ve forgotten any you can let us know on Twitter or Facebook.
