Ten 2015/2016 Summer Signings you probably did not hear of

The off season has and will always remain a time for the media houses to take the center stage, feeding us with all sort of information ranging from speculations to even wrong transfer News.
Going by the information given by so many so called "transfer News gurus" certain players would undergo medicals at all the top clubs in Europe only for you to wake up with the news of the same player renewing his contract with his current club. And that sums up the frenzy of the transfer window.
Amid the huge transfer speculations flying all over the place from different media houses, some transfers have actually taken place without anyone taking notice of them, below is a list of ten of such transfers.

1. Tomasz Kuszczak's move to Birmingham City
Many may have forgotten Tomasz Kuszcak the former Manchester united goal keeper who was actually an understudy to the veteran  Edvin Van Der Sar. The polish keeper who since leaving United has not made the news for a while, is now back on the pages of news papers as he completes his move to Birmingham City.

2. Sevilla have announced the €3.5m signing of Adil Rami from AC Milan
Adil Rami who was bought by AC Milian to help salvage the defensive woes of the club is now on his way out following the dismissal of former manager Inzaghi
and seeing that he alone could not remedy the situation now hopes to have a much better season as well as stake a claim for a place in the French National team.

3. Manchester United's Saidy Janko signed by Celtic
The name Janko will be sound very familiar to Manchester united faithful who would have expected Janko to remain at the club to continue his development and one day take his place with the big boys in the first team at Old trafford but all that is over now as he signs a 4 year deal with the Scottish giant Celtic and hopes to get active first team football under his belt.

4. Charlton have signed Simon Makienok. Season-long loan from Palermo
Much is not known about Makienok, but one thing stands out he is 6ft 7in and that tells you the whole story of what to expect from him.

5. Miranda moves to Inter Milan
Finally Miranda gets himself a club after numerous links and news of medicals up and down for him from various social media handles, the Brazilian who was signed from Atletico Madrid will now move to Italy a news which will break the heart of many Manchester United and Chelsea fans who wished their team could snapped him up last  two seasons after a solid display for Simone's team as they reached the UEFA champions league final. 
He will move to Inter on an initial 2 -year loan then followed by a €12.5m in 2017.

6. Sunderland have signed Sebastián Coates from Liverpool. 4-year deal. Undisclosed fee
Having crashed out of the Copa America with Uruguay former Liverpool defender Sebastian Coates is set to put the performance of the competition behind him as he signs a 4 year contract with the Black Cat as they continue to build a strong squad ahead of the coming season. 

7. Roma have signed Iago Falqué  
Iago Falque a one time youth player at Tottenham Hotspur has continue to pursue his footballing career in Italy after failing to make a mark in England. he has just be signed by Roma from Genoa for a fee of €1m which will rise to €9m if and only if he plays a single game for the club. Sounds interesting. 

8. Swansea sign Portugal international Eder for an undisclosed fee on a three-year contract
And the Swans are at it again, Swansea has made it a habit of pulling off a master piece when it comes to signing strikers, first it was Michu, then Bony, followed by Gomis and now Portuguese international Eder. Judging from what we have seen from the previous signings in the past, all the analysis of this particular transfer will be done on the pitch come next season. 

9. Álvaro Negredo has signed on a permanent deal with Valencia 
You might be wondering if you are reading this right. I assure you, you are. Negredo has returned to Spain, that is what the premier league does to "foreign" players. Alvaro Negredo whose signing by Manchester City sent a huge shiver across the spine of teams in the premier league has finally returned to Spain on a permanent deal to Valencia where he spent the greater part of last season on loan. The deal is said to be in the region of  €30m. As the saying goes; "home is always better".

10. Stoke City have reached an agreement with Inter Milan for Swiss forward Xherdan Shaqiri
This to me is the greatest shocker of the current transfer window. Though it has not been made official, If this deal goes through it may as well be one of the best kept secret in football considering the player involved and the club which he is being purchased from.
Lets just keep our fingers crossed as the drama continues to unfold before our eyes.
