Latest transfers

The 2010 programme is now over and clubs have a few days rest before activities resume at the beginning of January. The transfer window opens again on 3rd January, and clubs have already started to take on new players in preparation. Barcelona have signed on PSV Eindhoven's Afellay to strengthen a relatively small squad, and Atlético Madrid have agreed terms with Brazilian midfielder Elías to add to their attacking options, somewhat depleted after Simao decided to move on. Málaga are the big movers at the moment though, the new owners investing heavily in bringing quality players to the club. Demichelis, Maresca, Sergio Asenjo and Nacho Camacho have already been tied up, and Brazil's ex Sevilla and Real Madrid midfielder Julio Baptista is tipped to be next. Clubs have until the end of January to complete their squads. (30.12.10)
