With less than a month until the start of the January transfer window, players who aren’t playing as much as they’d like or managers hoping to offload underperforming stars will all be positioning themselves to ensure deals are completed early in the new year.

 

The winter window has traditionally appeared to be less busy than its summer counterpart; however, the volume of deals in January appears to have increased over the last couple of seasons.

 

The margins between success and failure can be razor thin, so a good mid-season window can make all the difference.

 

Sean Dyche’s Everton will undoubtedly need to use the market to their advantage.

 

The Premier League has penalised Everton with a 10-point deduction, dropping them to the bottom of the table.

 

Any points that they can pick up over the course of the next couple of months are going to be vital in their attempts to claw themselves away from relegation, regardless of whether an appeal against their punishment for financial irregularities is successful or not.

 

According to Football Insider, high-flying Aston Villa are prepared to allow their midfielder, Leander Dendoncker, to leave, and Everton are interested.

Given that Dendoncker has only played for 53 minutes of the 2023/24 campaign per WhoScored, he’ll surely jump at the chance of a switch, even if that means going from chasing a Champions League spot to being plunged into a relegation battle.
