David de Gea issues Manchester United a buyout clause ultimatum

As the 2015 January transfer promises to provide a few more meaningful transfers, take a look back at the best transfers of last year's winter transfer window, including Arsenal bust Kim Kallstrom.

The winter window is still open, and that means the LIVE transfer blog swings back into action. Find out the latest news, gossip and deals here.

TOP STORY: De Gea to insist on buyout clause?

Those pesky rumours surrounding David De Gea just won't go away ... the Mirror reported that while the Spanish goalkeeper might sign a new Manchester United contract, his advisors are apparently insisting upon a buyout release clause being inserted into any deal offered up by Old Trafford.

Sunderland surge up the table for now but work still to do for Gus Poyet

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet hailed Burnley's display despite seeing his Black Cats side beat them 2-0 at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland managed a 2-0 win over Burnley, earn the applause of the crowd and avoid yet another "last place" on Match of the Day, the Saturday night football highlights show. That meant a cause for some satisfaction on Wearside.

After last week's awful performance against Fulham in the FA Cup, Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet changed the formation yet again. From 3-2-5 against the west Londoners, the formation went to a fluid 4-3-3 against the east Lancastrians and it worked.

West Ham with that familiar sinking feeling after loss at Liverpool

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce was disappointed with the Hammers' 2-0 loss to Liverpool and also delved deeper into his side missing out on signing Manchester United's Darren Fletcher.

West Ham slumped to their perennial defeat against Liverpool at Anfield, going down 2-0 to a rampant home side on Saturday.

There was never any period when the Hammers looked likely to break their 50-year duck away at Liverpool and Sam Allardyce's men could have no complaints at the result. West Ham rarely threatened and only a bit of obdurate defending kept the score down to an acceptable level.

DR Congo keeper Robert Kidiaba breaks out trademark shuffle

Despite finding themselves two goals down with less than half an hour left to play, the Democratic Republic of Congo rallied and roared back with a 25-minute goal flurry to beat Congo in their African Nations Cup quarterfinal on Saturday evening.

DR Congo striker Dieumerci Mbokani got the comeback started in the 65th minute, with Jeremy Bokila snaffling an equaliser ten minute later.

After a tense interim, Joel Kimwaki finally headed the Leopards into a 3-2 lead with just eight minutes of normal...

Gustavo Matosas' Club America win but still lack the desired finesse

New recruit Dario Benedetto scored his first goal for Club America.

After Club America emerged victorious against Tigres 1-0 in a rematch of last season's Liga MX final, all seemed well and good with the club. The team bounced back after two winless weeks. New striker Dario Benedetto got off the mark for the squad with a fine goal, on which he was assisted by another new acquisition, Darwin Quintero.

Still, the memories of Club America fans aren't so short that they didn't remember the recent championship match was a dominating, 3-0 performance by a club so often...

Dortmund begin their 2015 relegation battle with a draw vs. Leverkusen

Schalke secured a 1-0 win against Hannover despite losing Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to a red card, while Borussia Dortmund slipped to the cellar of the Bundesliga with a 0-0 draw at Leverkusen.

Borussia Dortmund sit last in the Bundesliga after the first matchday of 2015. After SC Freiburg beat Eintracht Frankfurt 4-1, only a win would have gotten BVB back from last place. Easier said than done against a team of the calibre of Bayer Leverkusen.

It was a well-earned point in a tie that wasn't one for the football purists. Last season's vice-champions had the worst pass-completion rate since data began to be recorded with 46 percent. Admittedly, not nice to watch, yet intentional as Nuri...
