Sneijder to United! Donnelly to Liverpool! 10 transfers we expect to happen in the window


Incredibly, it's that time again already when clubs desperate to achieve their goals start scouting around for the players they can pinch mid-season.
Don't believe anyone who tells you it will be a quiet one.
The clubs at the bottom of the Premier League are bang in trouble and need urgent reinforcements.
At the top, Manchester United need fantasy in their midfield, Arsenal need back-up for Robin van Persie. Liverpool need an alternative to misfiring Andy Carroll to support Luis Suarez, Chelsea need a clearout to make way for fresh blood and Spurs will be hunting the "mega-signing" that Harry Redknapp believes will put them in with a shout of the title.;wi.1;hi.1/01
Elsewhere in the Premier League, Martin O'Neill needs more striking options at Sunderland. Everton and QPR too are a touch light up front.
And Newcastle need to sell to fund moves for a new striker to back up Demba Ba and a new defender.
A quiet window this January? No chance. Here are 10 moves we expect to happen...

1. Gary Cahill: Bolton to Chelsea
Only 26 years of age and Chelsea want him to recreate the effective central defensive partnership that has done well for England alongside John Terry.

2. Jan Vertonghen: Ajax to Newcastle
Alan Pardew needs a central defender badly with Steven Taylor out for the season. Vertonghen looks a good player. He's only 24 but he has already won 35 caps for Belgium and won the Dutch championship.
The only problem for Newcastle is that Spurs are also interested as well.

3. Carlos Tevez: Man City to AC Milan
We all know what Tevez can do in front of goal. We also know the problems that come with him but Milan want to sign him.
The only problem is City only want to sell and Milan only want to take him on loan.
Again, watch out for Spurs with this one. Harry Redknapp has been making noises about being interested in taking Tevez.
If Spurs were to get him they would have a real, real chance of being up there in the fight for the title in the second half of the season.

4. Wesley Sneijder: Inter Milan to Manchester United
Forget what everyone is saying about his injury record. I think United will sign him and I think  United will get him right and I think he will be fantastic for them.
He's 27 and the word is that Milan will have sell to raise funds to rebuild at the club.

5. Thierry Henry: New York Red Bulls to Arsenal
He is 34 but he can still do a job. He knows the club, he knows the players and the way Arsenal play suits him down to the ground.
Arsenal lose two strikers to the African Cup of Nations and Henry would be a great move even at his age.

8. Salomon Kalou: Chelsea to PSG
At 26 still got a lot of football in him. Has always known where the goal is but has more fashionable footballers ahead of him at Chelsea.
His contract runs out of the end of the season and billionaire French club PSG are keen to give him a new home. An approach has already been made.
