Zlatan Ibrahimovic (OVR 85 → 85)

In the relegation zone and with their first-choice goalkeeper injured, Aston Villa needed to act swiftly in the transfer window.

The loan acquisition of World Cup winner Pepe Reina is a smart one, with the ‘keeper very experienced at the age of 37, and knows the rough and tumble of the Premier League due to his eight seasons at Liverpool.

Manchester United, and West Ham were also trying to snap up the 21-year-old, but he has headed for Spurs on an 18-month loan with an option to buy.

Ryan Babel (OVR 78 → 78)

Position: LM, ST

New club: Ajax (loan)

Cost: 1.2k PS4 / 1.7k Xbox One

Ryan Babel has returned to Ajax on loan from Galatasaray, as he begins his third spell at the club.

He may now be 33, but with over 120 goals for club and country in his career, the Dutch international is exactly the kind of experienced signing that can help the Amsterdam club hold on to their Eredivisie title.

Patrick Cutrone (OVR 77 → 77)

Position: ST

New club: Fiorentina (loan)

Cost: 950 PS4 / 1k Xbox One

With just three goals in 24 appearances since signing for Wolves in the summer, Patrick Cutrone’s move from AC Milan hasn’t gone to plan.

The 22-year-old Italian international has returned to his homeland with a loan to Fiorentina a great move for all parties.

Takumi Minamino (OVR 75 → 77)

Positions: RM, ST, CAM

New club: Liverpool

Cost: 650 PS4 / 650 Xbox One

Another player who has left Salzburg for pastures new this month is Japanese attacking midfielder Takumi Minamino, who joins Liverpool on a four-and-a-half-year contract.

His current RB Salzburg card is a 75-rated CAM, with his new Liverpool rating 77.

Cenk Tosun (OVR 77 → 77)

Position: ST

New club: Crystal Palace (loan)

FUT cost: 900 PS4, 1.3k Xbox One

Cenk Tosun has shown flashes of why Everton signed him for £27 million two years ago, but 10 goals in 51 games for the Toffees hasn’t been good enough.

A loan move to Crystal Palace makes sense, where he can link up with fellow attackers Jordan Ayew, Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend.

Danny Drinkwater (OVR 77 – 77)

Position: CM

New club: Aston Villa (loan)

Cost: 850 PS4 / 1k Xbox One

It’s been a tough season and a half for Danny Drinkwater, playing just three games since the start of last season. Two of those came this term for Burnley, with his loan from Chelsea cut short for a switch to Aston Villa.

It was a tough debut for the central midfielder, at fault for two of the goals in a 6-1 destruction by Manchester City.

Ondrej Duda (OVR 77 → 77)

Position: CAM, CM

New club: Norwich (loan)

Cost: 650 PS4 / 750 Xbox One

Norwich are really up against it in the fight for Premier League survival, and the loan signing of Ondrej Duda will aid their cause.

The 25-year-old will look to recapture his form of last season where he recorded 11 goals and seven assists.
