Chelsea new-boy Kevin De Bruyne was the best signing on deadline day in the January transfer window, according to a poll conducted by GiveMeFootball.

The Belgian completed his move from Genk to Stamford Bridge early on on deadline day, but was then loaned back to the Champions League minnows.

He'll officially begin his Blues career in the summer, and at 20-years-old is expected to have a bright future ahead of him.

The winger scooped 33% of the vote, ahead of Tottenham Hotspur's new addition Louis Saha, seen as the second best of the frantic deals on deadline day, who earned 27%.

Saha's move to White Hart Lane was the one surprise move on the final day of trading, after having netted just twice for Everton this season.

However, the Frenchman is likely to play a support role to the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe, and an 18-month deal represents good value for Harry Redknapp's title chasers.

Third in the pole comes Queens Park Rangers' new signing Bobby Zamora (12%), who swapped Fulham for Loftus Road in the late hours of the transfer window.

The England international played a pivotal roll in the Fulham side that reached the Europa League final in 2010, but will be trusted with helping Rangers retain their Premier League status.

Zamora joins up with former manager Mark Hughes, his manager during last season's campaign, before the Welshman resigned in the summer

Next come Arsenal's 19-year-old recruit Thomas Eisfeld (9%), a relatively unknown German midfielder, Nikica Jelavic (8), who David Moyes is hoping can improve Everton's fortunes going forward, which has seen them net just 23 goals in the Premier League this term, and David Pizarro, Manchester City's newest signing from Roma.
