This January transfer window has seen a number of notable moves happen for players, both from teams in the domestic leagues, and further afield.
Domestically, College Europa have further strengthened their attempts to win the league with the signing of goalkeeper Matt Cafer, as well as striker Issa Bangura. The pair, formerly of English teams Yeovil and Luton respectively, will no doubt have been attracted by the potential of European football next season, something which would have been a pipe dream had they stayed in England. With the rules on foreign players in the league being changed to match UEFA rules from next season, expect to see more players at professional teams in domestic lower leagues across Europe, and potentially elsewhere too, consider Gibraltar as an entry point into Europe.
Outside of Gibraltar, Liam Walker recently confirmed his move to Israeli Premier Division side Bnei Yehuda. The Tel Aviv based side are bottom of their league, and look certain to be in the bottom eight when their league splits into two (similar to how Scotland manages their league). However, Walker may not play too many games at the club this season, with a loan move to another Israeli team, potentially one in the same division, rumoured to be happening. Regardless of this, Walker has been given the number 13 shirt for when he plays for his new team.
In England, after Danny Higginbotham’s retirement from football, Scott Wiseman was transferred from Barnsley to League One side Preston North End. Wiseman has played two games so far for the Lancashire based team, and received the man of the match award against Coventry.
With around a week left in the window, expect more moves to occur, mainly domestically, as teams try and strengthen their battles for Europe, or merely to survive in the league.
