THE JANUARY TRANSFER window is wide open, and who better to guide us through the latest wheelin’ and dealin’s than ‘Arry himself.

Just don’t use the words wheelin’ or dealin’, alright?



Miller is homeward bound: After a spell playing in Australia with Melbourne City the 33-year-old former Alex Ferguson signee will line out for Cork City in next season’s Airtricity League Premier Division.

Arsenal ready to raid floundering Dortmund: Arsene Wenger is set to splash out £63 million in a combined bid for Borussia Dortmund duo Mats Hummels and Ilkay Gundogan.

Warnock leaves Leeds for Derby: Former Liverpool left-back Stephen Warnock has left Leeds United and signed an 18 month contract with Derby County.
