Transfer Window slams shut, Leeds confirm 14/15 team
415 Million Pounds was spent in a hectic transfer window in the Premier League this season, Leeds only contributing towards 14 million of that total. Transfer deadline day itself was quiet, noteably the arrivals of Ruben Garcia (Levante to Arsenal) and Adriano (Barca to Liverpool), as well as the swap deal involved AC Milan's Abate and Liverpool's Fabio Borini.
With spending finished until at least January, the club today confirmed the registration of their team for the season. The target for the players most definitely being to stay in the league.
So, Dimitar Berbatov
completed a six-month loan move to Elland Road on transfer deadline day. The move lasts until Janaury, with it being expected that Leeds can extend the loan to the end of the season if they wish. The fee for the loan is around £250k with Leeds subsidising 40% of his 62k a week contract during his stay. With Lacina Traore's return to the club from Everton, as well as Riviere, Martial and Falcao, Berbatov was frozen out at the start of the campaign and wanted the move to play first-team football.
We will be reporting live from his first press conference with the Whites' shortly...
