Latest transfers

We are still in the middle of those two weeks where virtually everybody in Spain is on holiday, and on the transfer front that also appears to be the case. Most of the big signings have been done, but many players are carrying the "transferable" tag, and as usual the more cash-strapped clubs are waiting for the "last minute sale" signs to go up as the transfer deadline approaches. Expect activity to increase again over the next week. (24.08.09)
