The worst January transfer signings

Posted Wednesday, January 06, 2010 by The Independent

Michael Ricketts (Bolton Wanderers to Middlesbrough, £3m, 2003)
He once played for England you know. A purple patch at Bolton Wanderers persuaded Boro to part with £3m for his services, but three goals in 32 appearances were perhaps a better indicator of his abilities, and he was offloaded on a free to Leeds (no goals in 25 appearances). His fall from the heights has been so complete that it's a surprise to some that he's still paying (at Tranmere) and still only 31.
