Still three weeks to go until the final day transfer frenzy

Thierry Henry is back at Arsenal and there have been a whole host of moves already confirmed so far this month, but the real transfer frenzy won't come until January 31 - a full 23 days away.

There were just two transfers on January 29 last year and three on January 30 - but there were well in excess of 100 on transfer deadline day.

Doesn't that suggest that a change is required to the January transfer window? Perhaps it's time to do away with the winter window all together?

Fernando Torres was the big mover on transfer deadline day last year, joining Chelsea from Liverpool for £50m, and Liverpool got two for the price of one - and change - as Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez joined from Newcastle and Ajax for £35m and £22.7m respectively.

Chelsea also splashed out on deadline day in January last year, paying Benfica £21.3m for David Luiz, while Wolfsburg forked out £4.5m to lure Tuncay from Stoke.
