The transfer window is a period in the season in which Premier League managers can bring in much needed reinforcements – a world class defender to plug a leaky defence, a midfield enforcer to drive the team forward, or a silky striker to bang in those much coveted goals.
But it’s also a period in which managers can get rid of some of the deadwood. The players who no longer serve a purpose, those that are deemed “surplus to requirements.”
Players like Andy Carroll, whom the Reds signed for £35 million from Newcastle and is now out on loan at West Ham.
