Fernandes, Van Dijk, Aubameyang: Who is the Premier League's best ever January signing?

Bruno Fernandes in action for Man Utd

One year ago today, Manchester United completed the signing of Bruno Fernandes.

And what a signing he has been.

The Portuguese has been absolutely brilliant. He's almost single handedly transformed United into a Premier League title contending team once again.

But, is he the best transfer ever made by a Premier League club in the winter transfer window?

Some big names have moved to England's top tier in the past in January, including Patrice Evra, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Luis Suarez and Virgil van Dijk.

Poor Matic. He didn't get a single vote from BBC viewers.

To be fair, that's understandable given the array of quality on the list.

You know there have been some great signings made in January when Evra is only picking up 2% of the vote.

The top four is dominated by Liverpool and Manchester United players.

Vidic, signed for just £7m, just about beats Suarez to third spot.

Van Dijk has been terrific since joining Liverpool. He arrived for a massive fee but he quickly went on to prove that he was worth every penny.

But, despite his brilliance, it is Fernandes who has been voted as the best Premier League signing ever in the January transfer window.

Every United fan would have had high hopes when Fernandes signed for the club exactly a year ago.

But no one would have predicted that he would have the impact that he has had.
