Latest transfers

Almost three weeks in to the winter transfer market, and once again there has been little activity. Málaga have been the biggest mover this January, completing the signing of Baptista to add to the four we reported previously, and others could follow before the window closes. Atlético Madrid have snapped up Juanfran to plug the gap left by Simao, and Osasuna have replaced him with Alvaro Cejudo and Corominas. Elsewhere Villarreal have brought Cicinho back to Spain to replace Angel, who is out for the rest of the season, Sporting have signed Porto's André Castro and Athletic have swapped Ion Vélez for Díaz de Cerio. Levante got ahead of several clubs to sign Arsenal's 18 year old forward Wellington on loan, and Almería have strengthened their squad with Málaga's Juanito and Sevilla's Luna. Barcelona have closed the cheque book after signing Afellay at the end of December, but Real Madrid may still move to take on a centre forward to replace Higuaín, who is likely to be out for several months after an operation on his back. Many names have appeared in the press, including Adebayor, Van Nistelrooy, Tévez and others, but they only have eleven more days to make their minds up. (20.01.11)
