Here are five players who should reject a move during the January transfer window in order to stay with their current clubs.
Sometimes forcing a transfer away in January isn’t in a player’s best career interest. Afonso Alves shouldn’t have upped his wages to move to Middlesbrough.

Theo Walcott won’t be included on the list because he should leave. Same goes with Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Fernando Llorente and Yann M'Vila.
