The infamous Transfer Deadline day is almost upon us, with the closing date now less than a week away. At 11pm on the 2nd of February, the January transfer deadline will pass.
So far we have seen some interesting deals occur, on the 14th of January, Manchester City forked out an incredible £28 million for Ivory Coast Striker Wilfried Bony. City are known not to be shy with the chequebook, spending a total of £1Billion in the transfer market since 2008. Bony, formerly of Swansea, signed a four and a half year contract with Manuel Pellegrini’s squad.
Though the most expensive deal so far, the transfer seems like a good investment, as fans will be more inclined to witness how Bony plays with the rest of the squad after his performance in the last World Cup. The Ivory Coast national saved the team twice with two equalising goals.
This signing is a particularly historic moment in football, as Bony is now the joint most expensive African footballer to date. This set of circumstances will no doubt see a rise in ticket sales for Manchester City

Swansea have been the busiest team in regards to transfers this season, their most notable transfer being Kyle Naughton, who transferred from Tottenham to Swansea City for £5 Million.
Arsenal are another Premiership side that have seen a fair amount of activity over the current transfer period, with Krystian Bielik who transferring to the team for an undisclosed sum from Polish side Legia Warsaw, and Yaya Sanogo is now on loan to the team from Crystal Palace.
We have tickets available for the next Arsenal match on Saturday the 31st of January, where they will play Aston Villa at The Emirates. We also have plenty of Arsenal tickets available for some of their biggest matches home ande away in the upcoming season. Be warned though, with the Premier League stepping up a gear after a dramatic transfer period, we doubt the will be sticking around for very long .
This season's transfers are already looking very exciting, and we are looking forward to see what the last and commonly most exciting week brings as we edge closer to deadline day. Visit our Premier League tickets page to see the latest tickets available for all sides in the tournament.
