Premier League Transfer Deadline Day XI - Zaha, Kallstrom and Holtby feature

Wilfried Zaha Clear1

Crystal Palace, Cardiff City, Arsenal, Norwich city and Fulham are among the clubs who feature.

The majority of moves completed were by clubs looking to add new faces in a bid to stay in the top flight, and this team of players that moved to Premier League clubs on 31 January reflects that deadline day dynamic.

Goalkeeper: Wayne Hennessey (Wolves → Crystal Palace)

Hennessey arrived at Selhurst Park having been second choice for Wolves in League One, yet Tony Pulis still paid £3m for the Welshman's services. Once highly rated and tipped for a big future, Hennessey's career has stalled and will now compete with Julian Speroni for the #1 jersey with the Eagles.

Right Back: Fabio (Manchester United → Cardiff City)

The Brazilian struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford, and watched on from the sidelines as twin brother Rafael established himself as a regular in the Manchester United first team. Whilst he's likely to play at left back for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Cardiff side, he makes it in at right back here for being predominantly right footed.

Centre Back: Joseph Yobo (Fenerbache → Norwich City)

Nigerian international Yobo returned to the Premier League after leaving Everton for Fenerbahce in 2012, and will arrive at Carrow Road in an attempt to help Chris Hughton's side stave off relegation. The 33-year-old has been a bit–part player in Turkey this season, and the Canaries will be hoping that Yobo can rediscover his form that saw him star for the Toffees.

Centre Back: Johnny Heitinga (Everton → Fulham)

Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen was seeking defensive reinforcements in a bid to keep the Cottagers in the Premier League, and swooped for his compatriot Heitinga after the former Ajax man found himself out of favour at Goodison Park. With Heitinga looking to break back into the Dutch squad before the World Cup, Meulensteen will be relying on positive displays from the 30-year-old.

Left Back: Pablo Armero (Napoli → West Ham United)

West Ham may have been seeking to bring in a new striker, but manager Sam Allardyce settled for a defensive addition with Colombian full back Pablo Armero arriving from Napoli. Romanian Razvan Rat has left the club, leaving a hole at left back, and Armero, whose athleticism is a great asset on the flanks, should be a good signing at Upton Park.

Centre Midfielder: Liam Bridcutt (Brighton → Sunderland)

Bridcutt has impressed over the years at Brighton after Gus Poyet took the Seagulls from League One obscurity to the top of the Championship, and now Poyet has taken Bridcutt to Sunderland with him. A £2.5m deal was agreed on deadline day, and the former Chelsea midfielder will now get his chance to play in the Premier League as Sunderland look to stay up.

Centre Midfielder: Kim Kallstrom (Spartak Moscow → Arsenal)

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was struggling the midst of a midfield crisis, and whilst Gunners fans were hoping for a centre forward to arrive, midfield cover was just as important. It's unfortunate though that Kallstrom, 31, suffered a back injury in his first training session having arrived from Spartak Moscow in a loan deal.

Centre Midfielder: Lewis Holtby (Tottenham Hotspur → Fulham)

Holtby had struggled to break into the Spurs team under new boss Tim Sherwood, and whilst the German was linked with a move back to the Bundesliga with Schalke and Borussia Dortmund, Fulham swooped to take him across London in a loan deal until the end of the season.

Right Winger: Wilfried Zaha (Manchester United → Cardiff City)

The man who will go down as Sir Alex Ferguson's final ever signing at Old Trafford has been frozen out under David Moyes this season, but will now spend the rest of the season on loan with Cardiff in a bid to continue his development. An impressive debut from Zaha in Cardiff's 2-1 win over Norwich last weekend will give United hope that he could be worth the £15m price tag.

Centre Forward: Kostas Mitroglou (Olympiacos → Fulham)

Dimitar Berbatov's exit from West London to Monaco left a gaping hole in Fulham's attack, and they splashed out with the £12.4m signing of Greek hitman Mitroglou. With 17 goals in 19 games for Olympiacos, Mitroglou's exploits in front of goal will give Fulham fans hope that they can haul themselves away from trouble and maintain their Premier League status.

Left Winger: Thomas Ince (Blackpool → Crystal Palace)

It's been a busy month for Ince, who has been visiting many clubs in England as he sought a move away from Blackpool. Swansea, Stoke and former club Liverpool were linked with a move for the 22-year-old, but he finally left the Seasiders on deadline day to join up with Tony Pulis's side to provide a creative attacking spark that the London club may need in order to survive.
