With just over a quarter of the Premier League season in the books, now is a good time for a first assessment of this summer's transfer window and rank the newcomers.
Most of the top transfers came from leagues outside of England, with names like Chamakh, Hernández and van der Vaart claiming most of the attention. But a couple of players were kept inside the borders, simply experiencing a uniform switch.
Between the wallet breakers at Manchester City, the pocket change signings and a couple in between, some have gone well, others sour. Nine games into the season, let's take a look back and rank the top 10 signings in this summer's transfer window.
Honorable mentions: DJ Campbell (Blackpool), Moussa Dembele (Fulham), Sebastien Squillaci (Arsenal)
