The ever-faithful Times has returned, as it promised, clutching a rancid batch of craptastic moves. This is their version of the top-five worst January signings:
5 James Beattie, Southampton to Everton, 5 January 2005
4 Konstantinos Chalkias, Panathinaikos to Portsmouth, 28 January 2005
3 Georgios Samaras, Heerenveen to Manchester City, 30 January 2006
2 Michael Ricketts, Bolton Wanderers to Middlesbrough, 31 January 2003
1 Jean-Alain Boumsong, Rangers to Newcastle, 1 January 2005
So do you agree – is Boumsong really the worst January signing of all time?
