Manchester City – Wilfried Bony
Bony returned just six goals in 36 Premier League games following his £25 million from Swansea.
Manchester United – Alexis Sanchez
Incredibly good for Arsenal. Incredibly bad for Manchester United.
His piano playing was his best performance at Old Trafford.
Newcastle – Michael Owen
Owen did manage 30 goals in 79 games for Newcastle but the fact he’s since said he regrets joining the club and couldn’t wait to retire while picking up hefty wages at St James’ Park has seen him considered a terrible signing.
Norwich City – Ricky van Wolfswinkel
We feel sorry for any Norwich fans who put the £8million signing on the back of their shirt – mainly because the cost of such a long name but also due to the fact he scored just one goal as the Canaries were relegated.
Sheffield United – Geoff Horsfield
You know you’re a bad signing when your manager, Neil Warnock, tries to cancel the permanent transfer agreement that has already been made during your loan spell.
After his £1.2 million move reluctantly went through, Horsfield didn’t play in the Premier League for the Blades.
Southampton – Dani Osvaldo
The Saints paid £15million for the Italian in 2013 but the B-Tech Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored three times in 13 Premier League appearances and reportedly headbutted Jose Fonte in training.
Tottenham – Roberto Soldado
Soldado cost a ridiculous £26 million but he scored just seven times in two years at White Hart Lane – only two of which came from open play.
Watford – Steve Kabba
A fee that rose to £750,000 certainly isn’t disastrous. But he scored just once as Watford were relegated.
West Ham – Benni McCarthy
No goals in 14 appearances and having your contract terminated at the end of the season, which reportedly cost West Ham £1 million, pretty much sums up McCarthy’s time in east London.
Wolves – Roger Johnson
Johnson swapped Birmingham for Wolves in a £7 million in 2011 but the move was a disaster that involved a series of controversies.
