The worst January transfer signings

Posted Wednesday, January 06, 2010 by The Independent

Eric Djemba-Djemba (Manchester United to Aston Villa, £1.35m, 2005)
Legendary at Manchester United for being one of Alex Ferguson's worst ever signings and a symbol of the lost years of his player recruitment (other evidence - Kleberson, David Bellion). After 18 months at Old Trafford (and 20 attempts to prove he wasn't Roy Keane's replacement) he was sold at a loss of over £2m to Aston Villa who found that it wasn't a change of scenery that was needed. A handful of appearances and a loan spell at Burnley failed to halt Djemba-Djemba's downward spiral, which has now landed him at Odense in Denmark.
