The January transfer window is notorious for promising a lot, but delivering little.

As is to be expected with the modern game, rumours fly around on a daily basis, linking all types of players to all manner of clubs.

However the unfortunate reality remains that the vast majority of the proposed 'deals' don't have a chance of happening. 

Primarily clubs are usually extremely unwilling to risk disrupting their squads mid-way through the season and, though most papers would speculate otherwise, players aren't usually too keen either.

No, it's the summer months when all the juiciest transfers take place, even if they are in-part set up in January. 

With that in mind we list ten transfers that are unlikely to happen this month but that would be incredibly welcome for certain clubs in the summer.
