The January transfer window is usually a rather quiet one in Germany, and that in 2013 has been generally the case. Only seven purchases and sales have eclipsed the €2 million barrier, and the most expensive transfer thus far has been Wolfsburg's signing of Ivan Perisic for €7.5 million.
Still, there have been some big names to move to, from and within the Bundesliga. In addition to Perisic, star midfielders Nuri Sahin and Lewis Holtby have moved to Dortmund and from Schalke, respectively.
Schalke compensated for the loss of Holtby by importing Brazilian attacking midfielders Raffael and Michel Bastos, while Renato Augusto left Leverkusen for Corinthians in his homeland.
The aforementioned players are just a selection of the many transfers to take place in the Bundesliga this January. Click "Begin Slideshow" for a rundown of the most significant moves in the German league, arranged in chronological order.
