FPL – New Signings In January

Email

This page will be updated regularly throughout January and will list all players who have:

  • Been added to the official FPL website after signing with a Premier League club.
  • Already existed on the official FPL website but have made a permanent/loan move to another Premier League club.

    ARSENAL


        BOURNEMOUTH

        Name
        Nathaniel Clyne

        Position
        Defender

        FPL Price
        £4.4m

        FPL History

        TSZ Scout Analysis
        Nathaniel Clyne’s injury troubles throughout 2018 have paved the way for Liverpool starlet Trent Alexander-Arnold to take his place on the right-flank, both at the Reds and for England. Despite a mere 108 minutes of playing time this season, Clyne played the full 90 against Manchester United and was impressive considering his lack of practice. His low price and his likely game-time at the Cherries makes him something of a positive gamble for many. Clyne’s stats in previous years make for a tempting budget full-back. Although one can expect few clean sheets in a Bournemouth set-up, the former Southampton full-back could amp up his assists quota for Eddie Howe's - at times - attacking outfit.

        Name
        Dominic Solanke

        Position
        Forward

        FPL Price
        £4.7m

        FPL History

          TSZ Scout Analysis
          Dominic Solanke’s limited playing time at Liverpool might put some managers off, but his bargain-basement FPL price of £4.7m could potentially make him the most value-for-money striker in the game. The Under-20 FIFA World Cup champion is yet to show what he can do in the Premier league, but his consistent scoring at youth level had earned him a senior England cap in 2017, a year before his new strike partner Callum Wilson. At his price range, his FPL peers are the likes of Watford’s Isaac Success (£4.6m), Fulham’s Aboubakar Kamara (£4.5m) and Southampton’s Shane Long (£4.7m), who are all often substitutes and are hardly firing on all cylinders. With transfer speculation surrounding Callum Wilson, this big-money move looks like a pre-emptive replacement, and so Solanke could be about to feature prominently for the rest of the season. A word of warning for any investors though...Solanke is currently suffering from a hamstring injury and is not expected to be available until February.

          BRIGHTON


                BURNLEY


                  CARDIFF


                    CHELSEA


                      CRYSTAL PALACE


                        EVERTON


                          FULHAM


                            HUDDERSFIELD

                            Name
                            Jason Puncheon

                            Position
                            Midfielder

                            FPL Price
                            £4.2m

                            FPL History

                            TSZ Scout Analysis
                            Jason Puncheon’s loan to Huddersfield Town offers the Premier League stalwart a chance for first-team football, and at £4.2m he looks to be great value as a cheap midfield option. With an eye for the spectacular in front of goal, his position at Crystal Palace has been usurped in the last few seasons by Andros Townsend, but his goal and assists tally has been strong in seasons in which he’s featured heavily. It is likely Puncheon could be a starter for Huddersfield, who desperately lack the kind of creative work he can provide.

                            LEICESTER


                            LIVERPOOL


                              MAN CITY


                                MAN UTD


                                  NEWCASTLE


                                    SOUTHAMPTON


                                      TOTTENHAM


                                        WATFORD


                                          WEST HAM

                                          Name
                                          Samir Nasri

                                          Position
                                          Midfielder

                                          FPL Price
                                          £5.5m

                                          FPL History

                                          TSZ Scout Analysis
                                          Nasri's return to the Premier League is an intriguing one for FPL managers, particularly given his budget price of £5.5m. Veterans may well harbour fond memories of the Frenchman from his days at both Arsenal and Man City, where he was a frequent source of both goals and assists at his best. However, an 18-month doping ban has interrupted Nasri's career and - until his debut for the Hammers in the FA Cup - he had not had any pitch time since November 2017 when he plied his trade with Turkish side Antalyaspor. Time will tell if the 31-year-old can be the attacking asset he once was, but now that he can return to the field, he will look to inject new life into his career at an attacking West Ham side. Definitely one to monitor.
