Details on 3 deadline day deals & the massive month ahead – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool came out of the transfer window stronger than they went into it – and another deal could still go ahead as planned even though it didn’t close before the deadline.


Diaz and the days ahead

Given the expected quiet nature of the month in the market at Anfield, the Reds have had a near-perfect window in the eyes of most fans and pretty much without exception, everyone is now looking forward to a return to action.

Luis Diaz joined on a massive-money deal, six months earlier than expected to give him time to adapt this season – and boost our attack when called upon.

The Colombian’s debut is just one of several dates to look forward to in February, which will be a pivotal and potentially celebratory few weeks for Jurgen Klopp and his squad.

Here are all the vital dates you need to know – which includes a return to Champions League action and a domestic cup final!

  • Joao Cancelo has signed a two-year extension to stay at City until 2027, by which time he should be getting somewhere close to Trent’s number of assists. Assuming Trent doesn’t play another game between now and then, obviously
  • Leeds turned down the chance to sign Harry Winks, presumably on the fairly sound basis that he’s not very good – although not as good as literally nobody isn’t great, considering Leeds‘ injury issues
  • Donny van de Beek says he expects to learn a lot from Frank Lampard after joining Everton on loan from Man United. Presumably lesson No1 will be in how to play more than four minutes of Premier League matches at any one time
