The worst January transfer signings

Posted Wednesday, January 06, 2010 by The Independent

Ade Akinbiyi (Burnley to Sheffield United, £1.75m, 2006)
The big surprise of Akinbiyi's career may be that his transfer fee ever went up. The inelegant striker was a study in disastrous misses and muscular unsubtlety. Poor at Leicester City (who paid £5m for him!), he had found his level at Burnley (for a more reasonable £600,000). But Neil Warnock found it in himself to panicbiyi for Sheffield United for a club record £1.75m. Three goals in 18 appearances, and he was back at Burnley.
