The first week of January is over. Youve taken down the Christmas decorations and youve eaten that last bit of stilton that was stinking out your fridge. Theres only two questions on everyones minds at this time of year how can I shift that Christmas bulge and who on earth is that player weve been linked with? January is a notoriously difficult transfer window to predict due to the fact that selling clubs are unwilling to sell small and buying clubs are unwilling to buy big. All this leads to a feast of rumours and supposition that wouldnt be acceptable in any other journalistic form unless discussing Jeremy Corbyns shadow cabinet reshuffle of course. In Alan Pardews FA Cup pre-match press conference on 7th January he was pretty scathing, stating: "Ive seen all the names that have been linked with us and not one of them is true. Somebodys giving out some false information. It would be stupid of me to be say who is in the frame. We are looking at one or two names, but the names that have been linked with us are not them." Still, theres no harm in having a look at the THIRTEEN players Palace are 100% definitely buying this January.
