The winter transfer window across Europe closed on Tuesday, and a number of teams — not the usual big-spenders — that were scrambling to fill vacancies and address needs for the second half of their respective seasons were able to add some valuable pieces to the puzzle.
Queens Park Rangers fall into that category, adding firepower in the form of former Lazio striker Djibril Cisse and Fulham forward Bobby Zamora.
Tottenham made a late charge ahead of the transfer deadline, adding Louis Saha on loan from Everton for the rest of the season and acquiring former D.C. United centerback Ryan Nelsen on a free transfer from Blackburn.
The Toffees added a familiar face in Steven Pienaar, reacquiring the South African on loan from Tottenham for the remainder of the campaign. Everton also went out and signed Nikica Jelavic from Rangers and introduced the striker to the crowd at Goodison Park during the club's victory over Manchester City.
The only American international to make a move ahead of the deadline was U-23 midfielder Mikkel Diskerud, who moved from Stabaek to Belgian club Gent on loan for the rest of the season.
The biggest name being batted around during deadline day, Carlos Tevez, failed to secure a move and is still with Manchester City.
