Should the January transfer window be scrapped?
English football wants to do away with the January transfer window, according to the League Managers’ Association.
The Premier League, Football League, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association are all said to support the LMA’s view.
Chelsea have broken the British transfer record by paying a reported £50m to seal the capture of striker Fernando Torres from Liverpool.
The Anfield club looked to plug the gap left by Torres leaving by signing two strikers - Uruguayan Luis Suarez from Ajax for £22.7m and Andy Carroll from Newcastle for £35m.
The transfer deadline deals saw more than £200m spent by Premier League clubs.
