There is an abundance of footballers currently flying under the radar just waiting to get their big break this coming January.
The January transfer window is quickly approaching us and, as we wait with great fervor for our teams to ultimately disappoint us with their purchases, let's take a moment to recognize some talent that, usually, goes unrecognized.
Don't get me wrong all players get exposure. It's the most popular sport in the world after all, but some players, for a few different reasons, receive more fame than others.
This collection of players will fall into the not-so famous category. Sure, certain leagues are featured more prominently, and it may seem like some of these players are on the radar.
I'm thinking in more about name recognition. The diehard fans probably know everyone. So if a casual fan knows who you are, then you're pretty popular. If they don't, however, it's safe to say you are under the radar.
Any way, the other prerequisite is that these players have been linked with a move before. Rumors are rumors and don't always mean a transfer is imminent, but it'd be extremely difficult to compile a list of players who have already committed to a January transfer. It'd be a short list.
