A sign that this was a relatively demure window is underlined by the fact that Real Madrid's capture of Norwegian teenager Martin Odegaard generated the second highest volume of tweets during January.

Chelsea's capture of Cuadrado from Italian side Fiorentina was the stand out deal in the English Premier League on what was otherwise a very low-key final day in the January transfer window. A total of £130 million ($195m) was spent by English clubs, compared to £835 million ($1.25 bn) in the summer window. Clive Rose/Getty Images
