Of our five projected deals, four of them went through, including Mohamed Elneny to Arsenal and Lewis Grabban returning to Bournemouth.

Which five moves could be confirmed this week as business begins to pick up? Here, CaughtOffside casts our eye into the crystal ball again:

Steven Naismith – Everton to Norwich City

Norwich manager Alex Neil confirmed after Saturday’s defeat to Bournemouth that this deal had been close for “the best part of two weeks”, according to Sky Sports, and it finally seems to be happening.

Sky Sports add that the Scotland international forward, who has seen his first-team chances with the Toffees cut this season, is undergoing a medical with the Canaries ahead of an £8.5m switch.

Sam Byram – Leeds United to Everton

It could be one in and one out at Goodison Park over the next few days. Sky Sports reports that the Merseyside outfit have agreed a deal with Leeds to sign talented right-back Sam Byram.

Sky Sports adds that Byram is in the midst of discussing personal terms with Everton. The 22-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season, and the Championship club have little choice but to sell now.

Patrick Bamford – Chelsea to Queens Park Rangers

The Nottingham Post claim that QPR are the favourites to sign the Chelsea striker on loan for the rest of the season. He has recently returned to Stamford Bridge after cutting short a spell at Crystal Palace.

Rangers sold leading marksman Charlie Austin to Southampton over the weekend, and Sky Sports claim that 22-year-old Bamford is part of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s transfer plans to fill that void.

Andros Townsend – Tottenham Hotspur to Newcastle

Talks have continued this week between Newcastle and Spurs over the England winger, who has not played for Tottenham since October and is keen on a move to Tyneside, according to The Independent.

The Magpies have wrapped up their business quickly so far this January and therefore we should expect progress on Townsend’s future this week, whether it is a permanent transfer or an initial loan move.

Mathieu Debuchy – Arsenal to Aston Villa

Last week we reckoned that the Frenchman was Roma bound, but now it seems as though Aston Villa is his most likely destination, with Debuchy having confirmed talks with Remi Garde to L’Equipe.

The right-back is eager to play regularly to boost his Euro 2016 hopes, and might be more inclined to join Villa, on loan at least, after a couple of positive results improved their slim chances of staying up.
