With the season drawing to a close, here are five players who moved clubs in the Winter transfer window and have proved THAT they are worth the price...
5. Nemanja Matic - Benfica to Chelsea, £21.5m
Having left the club back in 2011 with only two Chelsea appearances to his name, Matic impressed at Benfica and has NOW returned. He didn't come cheap, but he has strung several excellent performances together for the Blues.
4. Keisuke Honda - CSKA Moscow to AC Milan, free
Signing a player of Honda's quality on a free is special. The Japanese plays down the right wing and can cross and pass superbly, as well as being a free-kick specialist.
3. Hernanes - Lazio to Inter, £18m
The Brazilian midfielder has been superb since joining Inter. World Cup hopeful Hernanes is a terrific player who can control the game with insightful through balls and vicious long-range drives.
2. Nikica Jelavic - Everton to Hull, undisclosed
After an unhappy season with Everton, the Croatian forward has scored six goals and formed a superb partnership with Shane Long at the KC Stadium. Another hoping to go the World Cup.
1. Ricardo Quaresma, Al Ahli Dubai to Porto, free
Having become a Porto Legend in the early 21st Century, Quaresma has been outstanding since rejoining. He scored a sumptuous curling strike against Frankfurt in the Europa League and later sent them past Napoli with an outrageous individual dribble followed by a brilliant finish with his weaker foot. Few can question his pedigree.
