OL: the most expensive transfers in history
We are yet to know what will unfold during the next winter transfer window. However, there is a possibility that John Textor might consider bringing certain players from his other club, Crystal Palace, to OL.
Newcastle and OL well served
Surprisingly, Premier League clubs have voted in favor of a text that allows player loans between clubs owned by the same owner(s), starting from this winter. Many expected the vote to be against such loans, potentially banning certain teams under the same ownership from operating.
As highlighted by Fabrizio Romano, this means that Newcastle will have the opportunity to utilize players from its other clubs, and OL and Crystal Palace can potentially reach agreements. This could prove beneficial, considering that Les Gones will need to make an impact in the upcoming market.
